Public ADS-B Performance Report Request

Flight Standards provides this automated tool in order to assist aircraft owners, operators, and avionics shops with the validation of the performance of the ADS-B Out equipment installed on aircraft. Public ADS-B Performance Reports (PAPR) may be requested for aircraft operations that were detected within FAA ADS-B Coverage areas. For best results, ADS-B validation flights should be conducted within published areas of FAA ADS-B Coverage. Flying near the surface or at the fringe of ADS-B coverage areas may negatively impact the metrics provided in your PAPR Report. Please refer to the FAA ADS-B Coverage Map before flying.

The tool requires the following information:

  • The date at the start of your flight of interest. This is entered as the date recorded in Zulu (UTC+0) at the start of the flight.
  • A way to identify your aircraft. This may be entered as the aircraft's tail number (US registered aircraft only) or the ICAO Address of the aircraft in hex, octal, or decimal format.
  • Your name and a valid email address to send your requested report.
  • The configuration of the ADS-B OUT equipment installed on the aircraft, and the equipment installer. There are selection lists below for common equipment and Repair Shops. A notes area is included if you do not find your specific equipment.

Using the above information, the tool will search through its inventory of past aircraft operations for a flight meeting the selections. If a flight with matching identification can be located on the requested date, a Public ADS-B Performance Report will be sent to the supplied email address. PAPR reports are typically delivered within 30 minutes.

Successful report processing depends on the accuracy of the information provided. All fields should be completed and verified prior to submitting your request.

Please provide the date at the start of your flight referenced to Zulu (UTC+0). If you flew multiple times during the day and would like a PAPR for a specific flight, check the Optional Time and then provide a Zulu formatted time during that flight.
