Glider Radar is a website that brings you global real-time glider tracking data. Our goal is to bring you a fast and easy-to-use map with the latest glider activity. We can achive fast real-time updates since each user browser will be connected directly to our own glider APRS-IS server (with no intermediate database-server).
This service require HTML 5 features to be able to feed you glider data in real-time.

A sailplane or a glider is an aircraft, they are aerodynamically streamlined and are capable of gaining altitude when flown in rising air. Most gliders do not have an engine, although motor-gliders have small engines for extending their flight or to take off.
Most gliders uses FLARM, which is a traffic awareness and collision avoidance technology. FLARM is mainly utilized in gliders, however other small aircrafts such as helicopters, light aircrafts, and UAVs are more and more often equipped with it.
The OGN community project maintains a unified tracking platform for gliders and other GA aircraft. Currently OGN focuses on tracking aircraft equipped with FLARM, FLARM-compatible devices or OGN tracker. All tracking-data published on this website is received from the OGN network
