Aircraft Info in Flight Tracker


#1

When I mouse over an aircraft in the graphical flight tracker it displays 3 lines of data. The middle line contains a sequence of numbers. What is the significance of those numbers?


#2

Altitude in thousands of feet (so to speak). Example 360 = 36000’ (FL360) then speed in knots.


#3

The first number is altitude in hundreds of feet followed by a ^ or v if it’s climbing or descending; the second number is the groundspeed in knots.

Quoted for eternal shame. :slight_smile:


#4

What? That airplane could be at 360,000 feet!
