ADS-B Tracking

With the Steel City club house right over the flight path for the airport with planes fly only a few feet over our antennas. It makes you wonder where that plane is going or coming from.  I found this site which is an open source community based organization that tracks all the airplane over our heads. Their setup picks up signals from all aircraft transponder that every aircraft is required to transmit.

Store:, the world’s largest co-op of ADS-B/Mode S/MLAT feeders, and the world’s largest public source of unfiltered flight data. Access to worldwide flight tracking data opens up a whole new world of flight monitoring for hobbyists, researchers, and journalists alike.

ADS-B Exchange differs from typical flight tracking sites in two primary ways.

First and foremost ADS-B Exchange does not participate in the filtering performed by most other flight tracking websites which do not share data on military or certain private aircraft. Because ADS-B Exchange does not use any FAA data there are no FAA BARR/LADD, military, or other “filters” preventing you from seeing the the data you collected.  ADS-B Exchange simply does not accept payment or requests to remove aircraft from public tracking!

Second, we are a community. The data we have comes from volunteers, which is supplied back to the community through APIs. Donations are appreciated as they are used to help cover the costs of the infrastructure, archive, and all of the great things you see when using our site.
