Where does the flight information for Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP)come from?
Most flight tracking applications use a single source of data - the US Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Aircraft Situation Display to Industry (ASDI) data feed. The ASDI data feed tracks flights primarily within the United States' controlled airspace and contains information for flights controlled by air traffic control. Pilots file a flight plan with air traffic control before take off that contains information such as: the expected departure time, route estimated arrival time Once the flight departs, the FAA publishes information about the position, altitude and speed of the flight as well as estimates on arrival times.
For security reasons the information published on the ASDI feed is delayed for 5 minutes. FlightStats supplements FAA data with data from other sources including airport and airline data feeds to give you both runway and gate times whenever possible. Flight information is provided by FlightStats
