• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

FlightAware and ADS-B - https://flightaware.com/adsb/

In addition to receiving over 50 different government air traffic control and private datalink sources, FlightAware operates a worldwide infrastructure of ADS-B receivers tracking 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 feed additional ADS-B data from their receivers using the methods below. Data contributed will be available on FlightAware's free web site and mobile apps.

In addition to the FlightAware ADS-B appliance, the following devices are actively supported:
Kinetic SBS-1
Kinetic SBS-3
AirNav Systems RadarBox
RxControl Mode-S receiver
PlaneGadget Radar
miniADSB
microADBS
Mode-S Beast

FlightAware ADS-B Statistics
These statistics currently reflect PlanePlotter clients feeding to FlightAware and do not yet reflect SBS-3 direct connections or FlightAware operated ADS-B facilities. Statistics are updated every fifteen minutes and represent activity for the last 30 days.

FlightAware ADS-B Frequently Asked Questions
https://flightaware.com/adsb/faq

_____________________________________________
FlightAware is now accepting and processing ADS-B data that members can choose to share from PlanePlotter & FlightAware is freely redistributing it on the FlightAware.com web site. Big thanks to Bev for adding a "to FlightAware" share button in PlanePlotter to simplify it.

For those of you sharing to FlightAware, you can link your easily PP sharer ID to your FlightAware account here:
https://flightaware.com/adsb/register
Once you've registered your sharer ID with FlightAware, you'll be able to see live ADS-B data on FlightAware (normally five minutes delayed), receive a free Enterprise account (normally $90/mo), see your data highlighted on the track logs, as well as see statistics on the contribution of different feeders. We'll be adding a lot more functionality in the weeks & months ahead and would appreciate any additional feedback or ideas.
_____________________________________________


Does FlightAware do multilateration (MLAT)?
FlightAware currently tracks non-ADS-B aircraft via multilateration (MLAT) if the aircraft is in the proximity of several FlightAware ADS-B Appliances (Gen5 or later). Currently, this is only available in Houston and London, but coverage is increasing quickly.
FlightAware does not currently support MLAT of data provided by customer equipment.

FlightAware ADS-B Appliance
Professional users without an existing receiver but with a facility (e.g., hanger, office) on an airport property are eligible for no-charge ADS-B equipment that FlightAware provides and operates. FlightAware's hardened equipment can be installed indoors or outdoors and all you need to provide is power (110-240V), Internet access (via Ethernet), and installation. Data collected is automatically integrated with any of your FlightAware services.

Professional users not meeting the qualifications above may be eligible for a Kinetic ADS-B Receiver provided by FlightAware that can be used with a PC.

Have a Kinetic SBS-3?
Kinetic SBS-3 devices can connect directly to FlightAware without having to run a desktop application on your PC. Configure your SBS-3 via your PC and then it can simultaneously share with FlightAware while you connect to it over your network if you choose. Simply follow the instructions below.

Top Flight Crews - (others listed on the bottom of page) - http://flightaware.com/adsb/stats/


Notice quite a few of you PlanePlotters are feeding FlightAware now - created a 'flight crew' so we can combine our stats.

For the PlanePlotter types, you can now share your data with FlightAware and get a few perks out of it:
The perk is a free FA Enterprise membership, which they normally charge $80 a month for.
