Do you want to link your Raspberry Pi with dump1090 to FlightAware?

If you are running an ADS-B receiver with dump1090 on a Raspberry Pi then you can install the PiAware package to transmit your ADS-B receiver data to FlightAware.

PiAware users can simultaneously use data from their Raspberry Pi running dump1090 and also send flight data to FlightAware via PiAware. Users that share data with FlightAware automatically qualify for a free upgrade to an Enterprise Account.

What is PiAware?

PiAware is a FlightAware client program that runs on a Raspberry Pi to securely transmit dump1090 ADS-B and Mode S data to FlightAware. PiAware is for people who are already running their own Raspberry Pi with an ADS-B receiver and dump1090.

It's fast and easy to get started.

Using the simple steps below, you can configure your Raspberry Pi to feed FlightAware. The process should take two to three minutes.

Already running PiAware?

View the PiAware upgrade page to update to the latest version.

1What's needed

You should already have a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian installed and some basic familiarity with using it.

If you are new to using a Pi or need to build a receiver from scratch please see these instructions instead!

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Raspbian Buster or Buster Lite OS installed
  • Internet Connection
  • Access to a command line shell on the Pi, either over the network or using an attached keyboard and display

2Download and Install PiAware

Download and install the PiAware repository package, which tells your Pi's package manager (apt) how to find FlightAware's software packages in addition to the packages provided by Raspbian.

For Raspberry Pis running on Raspbian Buster OS, execute the following commands from the command line:

sudo dpkg -i piaware-repository_4.0_all.deb

For Raspberry Pis running on Raspbian Stretch OS, click here

This will download and install PiAware and required dependencies on your Raspberry Pi.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install piaware

This will enable automatic and manual (web-based, via your request) PiAware software updates. These updates are disabled by default. To leave updates disabled, skip this step.

sudo piaware-config allow-auto-updates yes
sudo piaware-config allow-manual-updates yes

3Download and Install dump1090

If you don't already have ADS-B receiver software such as dump1090 installed, then you can install FlightAware's version of dump1090 by executing the following command.

sudo apt-get install dump1090-fa

4Download and Install dump978

sudo apt-get install dump978-fa

For further instructions to configure your receiver for 978 UAT, go to our 進階設定 page.

5Reboot your Pi

Once you have finished installing and configuring the packages, reboot your Raspberry Pi to ensure that everything starts correctly.

sudo reboot
