ADS-B on FlightAware

Submitted
In addition to receiving over fifty different government air traffic control and private datalink sources, FlightAware operates a worldwide network of ADS-B receivers that track ADS-B-equipped aircraft flying around the globe. FlightAware owns and operates these receivers at dozens of airports around the world in conjunction with airport operators. We also invite customers and professional users to connect to FlightAware's network and feed additional ADS-B data from their receivers using the… (flightaware.com) More...

The only very minor glitch I can see thus far is when Planeplotter tries to upload data to itself and FA at the same exact moment. The system takes a nosedive til the next cycle and I get a 'data crash' message. (puns intended)

Don't be overwhelmed by the software as it is quite easy to set up if you take your time. The receivers as Daniel said, run from the simple ($20) to the elaborate ($700). I purchased one for €199.00 which instead of using antenna cable, connects the receiver via it's own IP from the roof maximizing range, and eliminating antenna cable loss.

I haven't seen that issue before. Does the app recover automatically? Perhaps reducing the frequency of sharing to FlightAware to 15-20sec will reduce the occurrence?

It does recover automatically in time. Unlike FA, if PP does not get it's way with the network, it takes enough resources until such time as it recovers. During that time of course, all functions in PP slow down. I have considered the whole resource thing a result of my system, and not PP itself, although I cannot pin down the offender.

Is there any plans to distinct between real-time tracks and delayed ones?
like by color of the plane symbols perhaps.

I have noticed the very good coverage in Europe....impressive map. Looking forward to more worldwide growth.

If flightaware is doing it the FAA doesn't need to build in ones of their own this goes to show that private business can do it better and faster - Good work FlightAware

More the merrier. No ?
An extra ounce or precaution will hurt no one. And, chances are, it may be welcome.

sounds great ... I'd like to operate such an ADS-B receiver but it's still too expensive :(

I'm living next to SXF/EDDB (hopefully BER/EDDB some day)

There are radio dongles that are very inexpensive, often €10.

>will reduce the occurrence?
Statisticaly, yes, but when a station is unattended 24/24, it's not a solution.

I hope and pray some one from my country, India, with suitable infra structure and plenty of courage offers his/her services .

I have had my RadarBox connected for well over a year now and the only snag is RadarBox itself has to be restarted manually after a shutdown (for Microsoft upgrades usually).

You should start sharing with FlightAware -- we only launched that functionality in the last couple weeks.
