"Private" owners & how often is SDM owner data updated?

Post by jjwiseman » Thu Jan 03, 2019 1:04 am

Hello.

According to viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1712&p=8203#p8114 the SDM data originally came from planebase.biz. Is that data ever updated? If so, how often?

I'm in the U.S., and I see a lot of "Private" owners in the aircraft detail, and I know that the owner is actually in the publically available FAA database. I'm wondering why it's listed as private on SDM, and whether you would consider updating using the monthly registration database downloads that the FAA makes available to the public.
