That weight W requires an equal amount of lift L to stay aloft
To produce that lift induces a certain amount of drag D

Smile My take on TCAS vs ADSB vs having both

I think the real question now is,

"Do enough aircraft now have ADS-B out
to become reliably and directly visible to other aircraft,

Cool To beat this topic to death GREEN VS GRAY TINT
