I have several pilot friends for whom I have created tracking alerts for their aircraft registration. Most are VFR so I receive the email “spotted in flight” as they are ADS-B equipped, and I can see their flight path in flight tracking; works for my plane as well.
I have one friend (N961M) for whom I receive the same spotted in flight notification but no current flight path, most recent tracking says he landed over a month ago when his flight was yesterday. He recently installed ADS-B in/out equipment and wanted to verify I could see his flights but cannot.
Is this perhaps a setting on FlightAware that he needs to enable flight tracking? I don’t find any such setting… Maybe something he set on his FAA registration paperwork?? What may have changed in the last month or so that would prevent FlightAware from having flight tracking data for him? He’s a very frequent flier.
