I am new here so bear in mind with me and if this is in the wrong category please move it for me. Not entirely sure where to put this topic.
Anyhow, today I am feeding data to FR24. I feel happy the way it is and of course I have also heard about FA but never really considered it. I now want to know what benefits there are if I’d switch from feeding to FR24 to feeding to FA?
Currently I am having historical flight data for a year, I have different weather layers such as wind and SIGWX maps with FR and much more. On the statistics part there is not a lot of stuff but I have heard that FA is into much statistics is that true?
I have heard about the fact that you can get notifications and email-alerts with FA and I do in fact get those with FR24 as well but with FR24 there is a small delay of 5-20 minutes every time I get a delay. Is there a big delay with FA or is it instant? Is it possible to setup alerts that are based on when a flight departs and/or enters a specific airspace for instance Sweden or my local airport, ESGG?
Regarding mobile apps, which one do you prefer? How does the FA app stand towards the FR24 application? Does it load layers fast? I know that the FR24 app can be quite slow at times with loading the layers. Is it possible to search for specific tails/flight numbers/callsigns/routes etc?
Last but not least, would it be possible to feed to FA and FR24 at the same time and how does the web interface for FA look when going onto my raspberry pi’s local IP?
That’s it for now, and I would be very grateful if someone could give me some clues as to which one is better in this age and time.
