As you may have noticed, our live tracking page is not active anymore. Although it was still used last year at gliding contests and several new features were implemented, this season it was only stand-by and not actively used anymore. In a previous news article “New vision”, you can read what goals we have reached. […]
Starting with season 2016, the GliderTracking live page will no longer be in the air. Back in 2008/2009 we were the first to experiment with ADS-B tracking in gliders. The reason to go offline now, is because we want to focus on a new vision, and second because our tracking page didn’t offer the best […]
Behind the scenes The first gliding competitions of 2012 have ended! It’s time for an update by the GliderTracking team.

It was quite exciting with temperatures of -20˚c during last winter. Will our hardware survive? With a CPU temperature of 6˚c, GliderTracking proved to be more reliable than the Dutch Railways!
Our presentations at the Technical Symposium at airfield Terlet and the National Dutch Soaring Day in Zwolle were well attended by many gliderpilots. The great interest in GliderTracking gave us the confirmation that we are on our right way. During the presentations we gave away a glimpse in the future of live tracking.
During the Dutch Nationals, held at airfield Terlet, GliderTracking got in two weeks time in total 47.352 page views and 28.494 unique visitors!
