About the OpenSky Network
The OpenSky Network is a non-profit association which maintains a global sensor network continuously collecting air traffic surveillance data (opensky-network.org). Unlike other networks, OpenSky keeps the collected raw data forever and makes it accessible to researchers and aviation stakeholders. With over ten trillion ADS-B and Mode S messages collected from more than 2000 sensors around the world, the OpenSky Network exhibits the largest air traffic surveillance dataset of its kind.
