How to feeding data with dump1090-fa on a computer

I’ve installed dump1090-fa correctly but I didn’t find anyting about feeding data with it on a amd64 Debian computer.Does anyone know how to do it?thx

You have to install piaware data feeder to feed data to flightaware.

If you want to feed data to other sites as well (such as Flightradar24, Planefinder etc), you will have to install their data fedders as well.

To install Flightaware data feeder “Piaware” on Debian amd64 computer, you can use any one of the following two alternatives:

Alternatiive-1: Install Pre-built Packages

Alternative-2: Build & Install Packages from source code


Install Planefinder feeder:


sudo dpkg -i pfclient_5.0.162_amd64.deb

Install Flightradar24 feeder


sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.25-3_amd64.deb

This resource also works for pretty much any debian on any architecture:

The mentioned FA / FR24 feed instructions won’t work though.
But for FA at least you’ve already been directed to something that works.
