This workshop focuses on the terminology, tools and methods necessary to track aircraft using open sources, taking place on November 5, from 10:00 AM - 02:00 PM EST (New York) [please note your local time, as daylight savings ends at different locations this week] and is divided into three sections:


Flight tracking fundamentals: You'll learn about aircraft identifiers like hex codes and serial numbers, how to spot them, and when they might be useful in an investigation.


Flight tracking sites: You'll learn about commercial and hobbyist flight tracking sites, the technologies that make them work, their main features, and how to use them.


Supplementary data sites: In this section, you'll learn about websites that can have useful data about aircraft, like ownership and flight records.


This webinar is meant for researchers with a novice-to-intermediate familiarity with flight tracking, whether you're looking to get into flight tracking and don't know where to start, or you're looking to brush up on some terms and pick up some new tips.
