Following the outage of nov 11th, I have dug a bit into the numbers that FA reports for aircraft seen in the stats, and there are some things that do not add up or which I do not properly understand.
As stated in a previous post, I have noticed a steady downward trend of aircraft count in the daily stats from ~1800 down to 1200 over the last 10 days. I was under the impression that air traffic is more or less constant, so this seems quite a high variation. It this a normal variation over a month ?
As a consequence of the outage of Nov 11th, I have started PP to run and report flight in parallel with PiAware, while keeping my local virtual radar which only reports to my self. This morning when I look at the stats I see :
- Pi Aware : 1410
- PP : 1403 (actually started at 8AM, because Id changed, but reports seem to have caught up in the first 15’)
- Virtual Radar : 1655
That’s about 20% difference between the local count and FA’s count. What am I missing? It seems that the downward trend started when I upgraded to V1.16
PS : I stopped PP this morning, because FA’s stats get doubled when PP and PIa report together.
