A plane just flew over my house. It did some loops/circles, not sure which. I didnt get a good view. Then he flew away in a straight line.
now, im not far from a regional airport, there are a lot of crop dusters, and pilot training sessions going on over where i live, but these acrobatics are new. my neighbor complained to me that they were seeing the same thing a few days ago as well.
I checked live flight tracker, and nothing in my area.
what the frick is this? insurance companies flying taking pictures and shit?
or is someone having fun, but only doing two tricks?
is there a way i can find out who this plane belonged to since i got a timestamp and location?

    It should be on flight tracker unless they turned off their transponder or were very low

    If they weren't on flight radar that's a big problem for them right there

      Nah this isn’t true. Tons of private planes have their registration hidden from public flight trackers. If you are by a busy corporate airport where learjets are taking off all day, like 1 out of 5 will be on FlightAware and stuff, and those are Netjets and XOjet and shit.

      Try to read the N-number and you can still see the registration online, but not all their flight records if they don’t want it public.

        If OP is in any kind of urbanized area and near an airport with a tower the aircraft in question still have to be broadcasting on ADS-B and will show the type etc. even if the reg number is hidden.

      Its possible they aren't broadcasting. Not every aircraft has to have ADS-B out. You could check the exchange map. Also you sound schizophrenic and complaining about aerobatics is moronic unless its reckless. They're obviously allowed to operate in such a way in the airspace and there's nothing you can do to change that. Take it up with the FAA lmao

        At least that looks like practical use for aircraft. More than I can say for others.

        looks like they're gathering elevation data, or possibly cell network strength. Google earth already has the fine elevation data for that area, the buildings and trees are already in 3d when you zoom in, so it's not them.

      It is more than likely a student pilot doing training. It's not uncommon to do stalls, turns, and other maneuvers. You can use a flight tracking service there are plenty if you want to complain. However if you live near an airport, then move.

      These could be IFR training or testing, learning how to plot a course while staying reasonably near the airport. If you can get the plane to fly straight lines parallel to each other then you'll probably be fine.

        I looked up the company than owned the plane.

        It's mapping a rural area peppered with small towns. I live at the South end of those turnarounds. That's why it caught my attention that day.

    Let's see... Odds that it was a guy having a little fun then heading home over a sparsely populated area: 99.999999%
    Odds that an insurance company is going to rent a plane, fly it over your house, do aerobatics while they check you out, then leave (instead of using a drone or just a pair of binoculars): 0.000001.

    Yeah OP, they're on to you. With odds like that you should be playing the lottery more.

    look up pictometry. most homes in most suburbs have been photographed from multiple angles by aircraft. Used to use that shit when I worked for a solar company. Look up your towns GIS data, sometimes they'll have it on there.

    No private pilot anons here? Op sounds like he's incompetently describing a turn around a fixed point maneuver which is part of the FAA test and is a general display of airmanship so some poor bastard is either taking his test or practicing and turboKaren is getting triggered that he's not flying his plane the right way despite not knowing Jack Shit about flying. It really doesn't matter. There are old fashioned visual approach plates that are like fly along the highway then maintain a distance of a mile from the water tower until your turn lines up with the landing runway. He is just practicing the turn about a point part without practicing the rest of a landing approach.

      op here.
      as i said, i see pilot training going around me all the time.
      ive never seen someone circle around my property that low, and then make a b line back. usually they circle around for 30 minutes, cutting power, slipping, sometimes crop dusters will go in for practice dives. when its windy sometimes they just hover above me facing the wind with zero ground speed.
      one time i heard a plane above me lose all power, its prop stopped, they glided back towards the airport. i never heard their engine start back up again. guess they made it back, nothing was in the local news.
      my neighbor is dealing with the county pressing violation charges on them, they thought they were being monitored from the air.
      that plane was a stand out. idk what they were doing.

        You are probably not important enough to spy on.
        I was a flight instructor. Circling an area briefly is not unusual. Practicing maneuvers is one thing; on a checkride you do it once each and you're done unless you frick it up. Also, maybe he was stopping to look up a frequency or something before busting airspace. Maybe he saw a hot chick sunbathing.

    You know what I do when a plane flies over my house? Nothing, because I don't give a shit. Are you doing some illegal shit or something? If not, what does it matter if someone snapped some aerial pics of your place? It's not like they're reconning for a ground invasion or something.

    ATC-tard. No transponder required in certain situations. For example, outside of class b airspace. The real question is if the aircraft was operating below required altitudes over populated areas.

      not OP but I used to live at the edge of rural past suburbs and repeatedly a small aircraft would do loops (loops not turns) and other ass brained daredevil stuff over populated area that seems sparser than it is. I photographed the tail numbers and called the local airport they were flying out of. Reported jackass flying over populated area and never heard back - however I also never saw the plane again after seeing it consistently for weeks.

    jesus christ you're an autist
    its just a random private pilot having fun with a plane he paid for
    no, not every pilot uploads their flight plan to the internet, nor do they have to, no, the plane isnt related to any company
    you can fly as a hobby, and own your own plane

    A plane just flew over my house. It did some loops/circles, not sure which. I didnt get a good view. I asked him what he wanted. And he said: "Bring back 80's speed metal." Then he flew away in a straight line. I truely feel I was visited by an angel that day.

    Go to /ham/, read up on the library, get yourself a RTL-SDR and monitor the air band and traffic data yourself. Log the data so you can return to it later. If an aircraft passed you and ther was zero traffic, you would have cause for concern.

    I've got helicopters, police helicopters and light aircraft circling around my general house area every so often. doubt they're watching me for posting on the chans, but I reckon there's a pedo network operating in my area. always get messages from police now and then of kids going missing
