I hope there is a solution for my goals. I have recently purchased an Allegro light sport, N456TS. I would like to track its transponder during flights. I have setup a PiAware and I’m currently running it with the small 6" antenna until I get the permanent setup installed. I have an outdoor antenna from DP Productions which will be mounted on my weather station. On the tower, coupled with being located in a higher elevation area, I expect some good range. It will also have a battery backup to reduce downtime and corrupting the SD card.
My question is how to track the aircraft… When looking up the historical data, it reads “Blocked This flight is restricted from public view.” Is Flightaware the correct solution for me? If not, is there a way to do it locally on the Pi?
Also, my location for the tracker keeps moving on the map…Entering the correct location gets ignored. I know there is a bug, I’m just noting that I’m also effect by it.
