Background

The Omega navigation system ceased operation on September 30, 1997. Because the Omega system has been decommissioned for over 10 years, the FAA intends to cancel all Omega Technical Standard Orders and revoke all associated Technical Standard Order Authorizations (TSOA).

The FAA database contains three (3) specific TSOs for equipment based on the Omega system as a means of navigation, and numerous TSOAs issued for the design and manufacture of Omega avionics equipment. This announcement serves as notice to all Omega TSOA holders that the FAA is cancelling all TSOs (including active historical TSOs) and revoking all TSOAs for Omega avionics equipment.
