  • Hidden flights on FR24 websites?

    Hello,

    could it be, that some flights at the FR24 websites are hidden?
    I started feeding and found a flight of "Slovak Government Flying Service 2" near me using my DVB-T stick but it was not shown on FR24 website or app. Is the reason to be hidden "Government" or what?
    Is there a possibility to show all flights or an overview which ones are hidden/forbidden to see?

    They are blocked for a reason. See ‘How it works’ for explanation.

      Thank you! Interesting.
      But why the planes itself do send out that information which can everyone receive when they are so secret?

        Because ATC need to see them - The technology wasn't designed for public eye. It was designed for air to air safety.

        What we do is a bonus of the way the system works

          Very interesting!
          But why is it now possible with simplest DVB-T sticks to receive all that information?
          Is it legal?
