This dataset provides spatial location data for aircraft in a specific geographic region. It does not contain helicopter movements or classified operations (eg. military, police). 

Data requests will only be actioned where there is a clear link to airspace safety. Examples may be in determining risk related to balloon operations; rocket launch and recovery; remotely piloted aviation systems (RPAS, UAS, UAV, drones); or similar cases. Each request will be individually assessed by Airservices for suitability.

The data may have limitations due to:

  • Insufficient surveillance
  • Inaccurate altitude, particularly below 10,000 ft
  • Necessary data merging of mixed surveillance information
  • Gaps between data points
