It's something we'd like to do someday.

What we'd need to go from wish to code is ADS-B test pairs.  A test pair
would consist of 

(a) A sequence of ADS-B packets in whatever native format they use - binary 
blob, AIVDM/AIVDO-style armored packets, whatever.

(b) A known-good decoding of that sequence into an annotated textual form
that I could massage into some sort of conformable JSON.

We'd also need a pointer to the specification for the format used in (a).

With these things, I could probably go from zero to a testable ADS-B 
driver in time on the close order of a week.
