Thanks for the information, Cameron!  I was ever so close to getting to this page with the ADSB-Out Performance Request Report. I had been on the page which led to this, but I had failed to click on the correct link. 

I thought that I had read months ago that a 45 minute flight was needed.  However, even another flight instructor could not verify that amount of flying time needed.  It's too bad that the FAA could not make this easier to find.   I hope that your corresponding Canadian aviation agency is more efficient than ours.  
Have you been able to get an answer to your question about flight test after installation of your ADSB-Out?  I just had one installed in my airplane based in Texas, and I cannot find what flight test needs to be done.  I know that I need to talk to a controller to verify that he receives my transponder code and the ADS-B information, but I don't know how long ATC needs to observe my flight, or the paperwork needed afterwards.

Hi Charles,  If yo go to this web site, it explains the process.  https://adsbperformance.faa.gov/PAPRRequest.aspx  What I did was fly around in ADSb reception airspace for about 45 minutes, then afterwords, you go to this web site and record the info about your flight.  I did that, and within a few minutes I received a reply that gave me a positive performance report.  As far as I know, that's all you have to do.  As an aside, I live in Vancouver BC, so I just flew over the border into US airspace near Mt Baker, Washington and flew a variety of different headings at various altitudes between 10,000 ft and 11,000 ft, to make sure I had ADSB coverage.
