Missing tracking information
« on: October 04, 2010, 02:24:15 PM »
Hi Guys

Living in the Channel Islands I have an interest in FLYBE and Aurigny airlines aircraft.
Here is the question although I see the aircraft on the list at the left there is no tracking info and nothing on the radar screen.
Are these planes equiped with the right kit only some of them are brand new.
Also it is not that I can't see them at low altitude as the problem persists at over 10000 feet
Any ideas would be helpful.
Regards
Bounty

Most turboprops and regional jets don't have ADS-B as it's not yet mandatory.  That's where the tracking information comes from.

Same for me in North Devon, but when the route info is sorted it will be better. :-)

I should add that the above-mentioned aircraft do normally transmit EHS parameters including track, heading, groundspeed, airspeed and vertical rate which, with a bit of work, can be decoded (though not, alas, from RadarBox) to give at least some indication of what an aircraft is doing.
