    Glider SE-UVH, 4AD6C8, please change type to GLID, other information correct. Aircraft icon is wrong, it is displayed as a twin jet in Android app, should be glider icon.
    Actually it's a AS26

      Yes, I know, but as I said in my post it is incorrectly displayed with a twin engine jet icon. Also, for some reason FLARM data is not shown for this aircraft on the Flightradar24 page, only transponder data (when the transponder is turned on - mostly it is turned off to save battery power). If the type is changed to GLID, I'm pretty sure the FLARM data will be used to show the position when transponder is turned off and the aircraft will show on Flightradar24 as other gliders.

      There are many other powered gliders in the database with the GLID code, e.g.D-KAAC which is registered as GLID but is actually an Arcus M.

      So again, please update code to GLID for SE-UVH. Thank you!

        I am not an administrator, but you have to use the ICAO-code for the aircraft as written in the first message in this Forum:
        ModeS/Hex-code - always needed
        Registration
        ICAO Type code - sets the icon
        Type
        MSN
        Airline / Owner - no individuals, trustees or leasing companies
        Paint code (ICAO) - should reflect the livery of the aircraft - ICAO code only, not IATA code or name
        Operator code (ICAO) - ICAO code only, not IATA code or name
        First flight date - not delivery date - format year-mm-dd (if mm or dd is unknown replace with 00, for example 2012-06-00)

          By the way - the FLARM is a setting on the main radar window

            I used the ICAO code in my first post but I will clarify again to avoid misunderstanding:
            Registration: SE-UVH
            ICAO code: 4AD6C8
            Please change type to GLID

            It seems like you ekrk5 managed to find the glider in the database based on my first post so I hope the administrators will manage too!

            Again, help to update the database is appreciated, thank you very much in advance!

                The correct icao is; 342413

                please chage it

                Thanks and sorry

                I recently put that message to correct an icao. I am seeing that you have corrected it wrong. You have assigned 342313 incorrectly. the correct one is 342413 as I put you. thanks

                      The change will not happen because it's the incorrect code for the type, as pointed out already by ekrk5. The twinjet icon is the new default one which shows for all captures when the back-end database doesn't have the proper icon mated to the actual aicraft type, or when the plane's details are missing from the database. As it took the site owner around 10 years to fix the previous tranch of wrong or missing icons, I'd recommend you don't hold your breath waiting for it to be corrected.
