FAA Withdraws Transponder ANPRM

The FAA has withdrawn ANPRM FAA-2015-2147 which would have required that gliders operating above 10,000 MSL have an operating transponder.  Glider operations below 10,000 MSL would not have been impacted even if this rule had passed.

The SSA continues to encourage voluntary compliance for gliders operating in high traffic areas.
