Thanks Daniel and the FlightAware staff for working so hard in the past years to get to this point!
As an occasional user of the Blue Spruce routes in a ADS-B equipped King Air will the tail number show current aircraft position and flight data on FlightAware over the North Atlantic or while others require some type of subscription?
Sorry...”or will it require a subscription”?
Yes, your aircraft will need a FlightAware Global subscription with Aireon enabled.
It would be interesting to give a free 100 x 100 mile square or free 3 degrees of oceanic latitude to show what people are missing. Especially considering that the ground based ADSB can't show flights under 30000 feet if they are about 200 miles from land and the satellite based data will be down to sea level.
Two questions arise at once: Will the need for ground-based volunteer receivers be reduced? and whether available data from the satellite for those who contains ground-based receivers?
