  • The Russian authorities will no longer publish aircraft data in the public domain. How do administrators plan to validate data? Or will they fly "noname"?

        TC-MKZ has been blanked. TC-MKE has been updated to its new frame. Changes on the live site will take effect within 24 hours.

        • Definition of Operator.
          For example Corendon use a lot of wet-leased planes. Sometimes I see as operator Corendon, sometimes AirExploire / DAT etc. (The ACMI Compagny).
          What is the definition of ‘ operator’? expect Flightradar24 the ACMI company (e.g. AirExploire) or Corendon as operator in this case?

          • "Aircraft registration marks in Australia are changing to include a new alphanumeric system.

            We use the VH Australian Nationality Mark followed by 3 alpha characters. Soon we will be introducing a 3-character alphanumeric combintion such as VH-2AB, VH-A9B, VH-A22.


            Introducing a 3-character alphanumeric system will mean the availability of more than 20,000 additional marks"

            • Could the icon for the Boeing B17 be corrected? Aircraft G-BEDF gets a large following whenever it flies and although the type designator in the database is correct (B17) the icon on FR24 shows a helicopter.

                I've raised the issue with the site admin and owner. Nothing I can do here as the icons are coded by the devs There is a big overhaul for all the icons planned before the end of the year but because of how they were originally implemented it's not a quick process and they need reworking from scratch.
                Update: Unfortunately it is not possible for any icons to be changed until the rework now.

                  The owner has been updated from private owner, but to "United States - Virginia State Police" instead of the originally stated correction. Can you remove the United States portion, please? Otherwise, it potentially seems to imply the US government owns this aircraft. Thanks!
                  No, I'm sorry, but "United States" can't be removed. Aircraft who belongs to public authorities or military forces should have the country name before the autority/force with a dash between them. Same as Jetphotos, as you can see. This is a FR24 internal rule, so it can't be changed.

                    Interesting... there are probably a few hundred aircraft that aren't following this rule then, just as a heads up. Many police departments, highway patrols, and other county/state/federal departments. None of the others I have seen adhere to this, except strict military aircraft such as the Army, Air Force, Navy, etc. Which was the only reason I brought it up.

                      Yes, you're right. The ones that not "follow the rule" is because they were added in the database before it was implemented. Slowly, they all will have the correct name.
