No personal data is collected besides a temporary storage of log files which is kept for less than 30 days.
We do not accept aircraft blocking requests. This is public data and our data is unfiltered.
Our primary source of information is public records, including Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) signals and public documents. The information we collect is used to provide accurate and up-to-date aircraft tracking services.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked. The information can be received by air traffic control ground stations as a replacement for secondary radar. It can also be received by other aircraft to provide situational awareness and information for collision avoidance.
These could include various types of publicly available documents or databases. For example, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States maintains a comprehensive database of registered aircraft, including details about the aircraft type, the owner, and other relevant information. Similar databases exist in other countries as well.
Air Traffic Control (ATC) audio refers to the radio communications between ATC and pilots. This includes instructions from ATC to pilots regarding takeoff, landing, and in-flight maneuvers, as well as readbacks from pilots confirming these instructions. In some countries, ATC audio is publicly available and can be used to provide real-time information about flight operations.
Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) is a digital datalink system for transmission of short messages between aircraft and ground stations via airband radio or satellite. The protocol was designed by ARINC and deployed in 1978, using the Telex format. More modern systems use the ATN format. ACARS messages may include flight plans, weather reports, and performance data, and are used for airline operational control and management.
