I've seen that lately it doesn't detect some flights and some areas. I was in Bogota this past week, and it was clear skies of aircraft 100% of the time!
|Quoting TonyBurr (Reply 2):|
I also find that it is not accurate, especially on USAirways transatlantic flights. It has them going from domestic to domestic airports when it is out over the Atlantic.
|Quoting p201055r (Reply 6):|
Not sure that I can be more positive than PA515, TonyBurr and flyingalex, apart from saying that the app relies on inputs from enthusiasts, it does not piggy-back on ATC radar. Thus the lack of "visible" aircraft for the original poster when in Bogota, reflects a lack of input rather than the lack of aircraft in the skies there.
|Quoting rduddji (Reply 13):|
Previous posters are correct about the thru flights. It sometimes shows the wrong city pairs on those. However, you have to remember the ADS-B signal doesn't have the flight number or city encoded in it, so I imagine FR24 does a relational lookup to a table somewhere of all the World's flights. If there are discrepancies or changes there, they're passed into the FR24 GUI. Garbage in/garbage out.
