Understanding Extended Mode S Data in Flightradar24

With the release of the latest version of the Flightradar24 website we introduced new flight details called Extended Mode S data. We’re proud to be the first flight tracking service to offer this additional flight data.

Extended Mode S data can include additional information about the speed and altitude of the aircraft as well as weather information.
