My reasons for sharing with FlightAware:

1. Getting MLAT data in return for my feeded data is just awesome. I love to see helicopters and small planes (and an occasional UAV) showing up on my VRS map now :)

2. Their huge database of past and scheduled flights is great. They have lots of things that are not available on other flight tracking websites.

3. Their software works great and is easy to use.


Possible improvement:
- improve graphical quality of the map

1.- Like most of us, the MLAT capability and the study of frames ADS-B
2.- View air traffic for different places.
3.-It is interesting to see the number of aircraft flying

1) Great website with lots of statistics and powerful search and history.
2) The FA's MLAT return feed: you share with FA, FA share with you.
3) Learning! Can't list how many areas of knowledge you can explore: aviation, electronics, networking, antennas & propagation...

Suggestion:
1) The aircraft icons on the radar screen could be more realistic.

Good luck to everyone! ;)

Three Reasons
1. Improving the Mlat network.
2. See traffic in other places, within a wide network.
3. The FA's return feed.
4. Learning and improving our hobby, look how much technology has aided us so far.


One thing to make it better, make things easier in install for people who do not do computer speak.

My three reasons for sharing data with FlightAware are:

1. MLAT capabilities expand usefulness of system.
2. Coverage for all areas in interest to me.
3. Easy to use and setup along with free account.
4. It's fun to tinker with hardware trying to get best coverage for my PiAware.

I make that 4 reasons not three!!  You yanks kill me. ;D

Anyway my three are:

1. MLAT capability
2. Sharing data only enhances everyone's enjoyment of this wonderful hobby (unless you've been duped by Brandao)
3. Another nail in Air Navs coffin which isn't a bad thing.

If I win with these three, the cry for a recount will be heard across Southern England. :P

Would the accidental burning down of the Air Nav building (wherever that can be proved to be) be considered an improvement too far? 

As you can probably tell, I'm not taking this at all seriously.

Three reasons for sharing data:-
1) I feel that others can benefit from the data I collect - after all, I benefit from other people sharing their data. The Enterprise Account is a nice way of saying thank you to sharers.
2) I can get to see details of aircraft that interest me that otherwise I wouldn't know about as they are too far away to pick up
3) Lastly, it means I can track an aircraft on which my one of my family (or friends) are on and so I can set off to the airport to meet them - airlines and airports promise more than they deliver about just where their aircraft are. Departed means "left the gate - not taken off".

As to improvements - that's a bit hard...
I suggest making it a bit easier for seeing what's around a given place? Whilst it's a suggestion that seems to go against the ethos of flight aware (to me that means tracking a particular flight), I do like having a detailed map view underneath the aircraft as that tells me where they are. Being able to see other aircraft heading for the same destination also gives an idea of the likely delays on the approach.Also it's nice to have the system remember where I last was viewing.

Reasons for sharing data with Flightaware:
1) Help to increase coverage over my country/location
2) Those data, I think, is very usefull for future investigation of flight accidents and review of some flight paths/history. So I think those data ate FlightAware could really help in flight's accidents investigations.
3) It's very cool to capture airplanes positions at home with very cheap electronics and almost nothing professional equipaments.

My sugestion:
1) Make a better MAP with more information about airplanes and other informations at realtime.

Three reasons:
1. A useful task for my Raspberry Pi computer.
2. A small antenna in my window is able to find airplanes very far away.
3. Sometimes I wish I was in Economy on one of those long-distance flights.

Reasons for sharing:

1) "My-ADSB" statistics are great for seeing how you perform against other receivers
2) Free premium Flight Aware membership!
3) Sharing is caring

Ways to make Flight Aware better
1) Develop a rich multi-platform app (like ModesDeco) that could be used for receivers. I believe this would help spur interest since people could easy see just the flights they are tracking.
