At what altitude are the planes currently flying around the world?

I have make a Java program (Wieviele Flugzeuge sind jetzt im Vergleich zu „vor Corona“ in der Luft? – Wenzlaff.de – Rund um die Programmierung).

Here the result from now:

Yes, but that’s opensky as source from their API, right?

They do have significant less aircraft in view than other sites based on their coverage.

But anyways interesting

Yes, that’s source is from free OpenSky REST-Api!

I was playing around with that API as well for my own receiver.

Maybe you can look at ADSBExchange, they also offer an API and they have a wider coverage.

good idea … but the tendency is evident :slight_smile:

The free API for every receiver is a thing of the past due to rampant abuse.

There are the lot of circle bots and quite a few hobby users that still use that past offering though.

That is really bad if people abuse that level of trust. Sorry to hear that. Thanks for the update
