So I am a contributor and also using FlightAware to track my own aircraft via ADS-B.
If I am logged in, I can see the flights of my aircraft that FA has tracked via ADS-B (because it am feeding data). However if I give the tracking URL to someone else, all that comes up are the IFR flights.
As the aircraft owner, is there any way I can open this up for public viewing? Does FA plan to make this available to everyone at some point?
ADS-B data is freely available on the web site right now. However, position-only flight tracking (where we derive the flight plan from positions) isn’t yet. Are you looking to share access to those position-only (e.g., VFR) flights?
If arriving (no flight plan) at an airport where there is not coverage to the ground, you get a notice that N12345 as arrived at lat/long, however this notice does not appear until an hour after the plane was last seen on ADSB. Is this correct?
If there is an IFR flight plan, what happens if ATC deletes it before departure? What if they delete it after departure?
