Background

Because the Omega navigation system ceased operation on September 30, 1997, the FAA intends to cancel all Omega Technical Standard Orders (TSOs) and revoke all associated Omega Technical Standard Order Authorizations (TSOAs). Currently, the FAA database contains three TSOs and numerous TSOAs for the design and manufacture of Omega avionics equipment. This announcement serves as notice to all Omega TSOA holders that the FAA intends to cancel all TSOs (including active historical TSOs) and revoke all TSOAs for Omega avionics equipment. The affected TSOs are as follows:

TSO-C94, Airborne Omega Receiving Equipment;

TSO-C94a, Omega Receiving Equipment operating within the Radio Frequency Range of 10.2 to 13.6 Kilohertz; and

TSO-C 120, Airborne Area Navigation Equipment Using Omega /VLF Inputs.
