Can I feed to Flightaware with a NooElec stick?


Hi all, I have just got Raspberry Pi 3 and have it connected with a NooElec NESDR Mini 2+ now my question is (apologies if some have asked it before) can I send data to FlightAware and see everything my stick picks up I frequently get police helicopters, air ambulances and other MLAT aircraft over but although picked up by the antenna they never show on a map.



Yes, provided you install the FA feeder, which is called Piaware.

There is no way that I know of that you can feed ADS-B to any site and still monitor other frequencies/services.

Looks like you don’t have an ADS-B decoder installed. Install the all in one Piaware image, the easiest and best way to handle ADS-B reception and feeding.


Thanks. I shall take a look.


Hi, I’ve followed the instructions here -

But it’s not working

Anyone able to help?

Do I need PiAware installed on the memory card then enter the code using Putty?


it is working now, you may also try
without the uk. part.
if still no joy, check browser settings and firewall /antivirus.

yes, to 2nd question.


Hi when I meant the code wasn’t working not the link sorry for the confusion

If I just download the PiAware onto a memory card would that mean I wouldn’t have to use the code?


if by by ‘code’ you mean the Piaware program, downloading is not enough. you must install what you downloaded ! did you follow all the steps from that flightaware page ?
did you install dump1090-fa or any other decoder / feeder ?
when all finished you can see the output in your browser with ip-of-RPi/dump1090-fa.

can you post the output from sudo piaware-status ?


I’m now online I hadn’t gone to the correct page to claim my receiver



yes you are on, your stats page show traffic.
