Aircraft Tracking Websites & Apps / Re: FR24 Security Breach
« Last post by Keef on June 21, 2018, 09:50:09 pm »
I got that email and I have a couple of comments.

First, I never click on reset password links in emails unless I requested the reset myself and was expecting the email as it is a common phishing method, advice I would give to everybody. I wasn't too impressed with that method of communicating a password reset, better to say log in to the site and change your password.

Second, I couldn't find a way to reset my password or even view my account details when I visited the FR24 site.
There is a cookie set which automatically logs me in, which is fine, but I couldn't see any way to get to my account to change the password or request a reset.

I ended up going to FR24 using a different browser (too lazy to track down and delete the cookie) and then on the homepage there is a reset password option which I used.

Seems strange I can't find a way to reset my password when I'm logged in. Maybe there is a way but if there is they've made it very hard to find (for me at least).

I like FR24 and send them data so I'm not just bashing them, only airing my thoughts.

I had assumed you already have a pre-populated SQB database file with the hex to reg lookup. This should also contain the ICAOTypeCode so if you create the Condex using the ICAOTypeCode, it should work. However, if your SQB file is not populated or the airframe is new to you, then you will either need to do it manually or use one of the lookup programs to do it for you.

Active Display Lite or PB Link - via PlaneBase will do it for you. I am sure there are others. You could even try the lookup function from within PP - right click on the chart / map and select lookup that has never worked for me but many users do get it to function and that will populate the SQB file for that particular aircraft.

The generic code is the ICAOTypeCode.

Does that answer your question?

So if I right click on an aircraft, to get the position report, that's how I can obtain it's ICAO hex code? Otherwise, no way to look it up in advance?
I've seen this aircraft departing my local GA airport so, I'm hoping he's a regular so that I can tag him and create an expressional condition.

But if hex codes are unique, then there's no "generic" code that would identify this particular type of aircraft, correct?

From the help file - Display options:

ADS-B Emitter Category coding:

Set A
0 = No ADS-B Emitter Category Information
1 = Light (< 15 500 lbs.)
2 = Small (15 500 to 75 000 lbs.)
3 = Large (75 000 to 300 000 lbs.)
4 = High Vortex Large(aircraft such as B-757)
5 = Heavy (> 300 000 lbs.)
6 = High Performance ( > 5 g acceleration and > 400kts)
7 = Rotorcraft
Set B
0 = No ADS-B Emitter Category Information
1 = Glider/sailplane
2 = Lighter-than-Air
3 = Parachutist/Skydiver
4 = Ultralight/hang-glider/paraglider
5 = Reserved
6 = Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
7 = Space/Trans-atmospheric vehicle
Set C
0 = No ADS-B Emitter Category Information
1 = Surface Vehicle – Emergency Vehicle
2 = Surface Vehicle – Service Vehicle
3 = Fixed Ground or Tethered Obstruction
4-7 = Reserved
Set D : Reserved

So I wouldn't use that for your requirement.

I'd go for something like:

ICAO hex code="SF50"

or the short form:


PlanePlotter / Conditional Expressions

I would like to compose one for a particular type of aircraft; a Cirrus jet.

Options>Conditional expressions>Alert conditional expressions>Aircraft category?

Would I use that to create my conditional expression, and if so, is there a place I can look up the "official" category for whatever aircraft I decide to use?

Or, is "aircraft category" meant for "light" "heavy" "single-engine", etc.?
