Blocking Display of ADS-B Information

Last month I wrote a short note about a number of pilots in the Phoenix area that have received threatening or harassing letters about being too low over a certain area.  It seems that people on the ground are using FlightAware or similar software to monitor the altitudes of airplanes equipped with ADS-B. The altitude the person on the ground sees is pressure altitude and can be several hundred feet lower than what the pilot sees on his altimeter, resulting in false accusations.  Upon investigation, this type of accusation is happening not only in the Phoenix area, but all over the country.  If you would like to have your aircraft removed from these public websites, or only allow certain individuals to monitor your aircraft, go to the following website to change your privacy, and of course, follow all regulations relating to acceptable altitudes:
