From over 45 ADS-B connected gliders in the Netherlands, last monday Bas Schellenberg/PH-1169 has chosen the Dutch airspace and was able to be tracked on our live tracking page.
At this moment, only our ADS-B receiver on the RU Nijmegen is active, the ADS-B coverage is not optimal, but we’re working on that.
Soon, we will be able to add the locations UT Enschede and TU Eindhoven as permanent positions of ADS-B reception. Also we have plans to co-operate with partner websites, such as Pinkfroot (Planefinder.net).
To improve the local ADS-B coverage, near to airfields, we are still calling all gliding clubs to contact us about placing local ADS-B receivers.
