It is called AVRORA it seems to always be located in the vicinity of 50.7795 N 50.7795 E at exactly 10005 m or 32,000 ft. It is stationary. Says Invalid transponder code. It is located right in the lane that it seems like a bunch of freighters fly in the ANC to Tokyo / Seoul route. In fact an Atlas Air 747 few right on top of it this morning. Does anybody have an idea what this could be or can you help me find someone who would know? Thanks Andy

AVRORA is a surveillance radar. If you watch aircraft flying by they turn from blue to yellow, meaning they have transitioned from satellite based data to ground based. I suspect the ďaircraftĒ you see is some sort of glitch showing the ďcornerĒ of the ground based radarís range.

Default Flashlight recommendations

Looking to get a new flashlight and need ideas. I prefer compact yet bright enough to preflight on a rainy morning. Also made in the USA is a plus.

Default First time posting!

Hello, fellow pilots wherever you are!

I've registered as a member on the forum 3 years ago, but didn't post anything until today! I did my PPL in 2019, and I'm planning to continue my training. I have a topic that I'd like to ask for your opinions about, so I may start a new thread, if that's the regular thing to do, as the topic may have been discussed in the past (I found posts, but they are almost 5 years old).

Welcome aboard. This is a good group of folks. Realize you can trust over half of what is posted and sometimes we argue endlessly about some minutia. But that is much better odds than other places, and it is done at a higher level.

There are everyone from students who are working on their private license to retired grey beards. Mostly commercial pilots. A handful of others that work or sit outside of the cockpit. So, all question and comments are welcome, except for those answered on the same thread a page ago, or trolls (not very many of the latter, unliked other social media.)

Obviously there are things we do not want to discuss on this public forum. Also follow the rules, no names unless publicly well known. No slander. Etc. Pretty common sense. Moderators are pilots who volunteer their time. None of us are perfect, but they do a very admirable job, usually get involved when someone really steps out of line.
