Open Air Traffic Tracking Data

The OpenSky Network is a community-based receiver network which continuously collects air traffic surveillance data. Unlike other networks, OpenSky keeps the collected data forever and makes it accessible to researchers. With over 5 trillion ADS-B and Mode S messages collected from more than 1000 sensors around the world, the OpenSky Network exhibits the largest air traffic surveillance dataset of its kind.
