December 2018 Update Published on Dec 7, 2018 by Koen Vlaswinkel

Hi pilots,

As you might have noticed, numerous changes have been made to the website in the past few days.

First of all, our Flight Briefing alpha has been promoted to beta and has been enabled by default. We introduced the alpha in May of this year, so to view more information about the briefing, please see our May 2018 Update. Since then, the routing has been slightly improved, although there are still some routes it cannot handle properly. If you find such a highly unrealistic route, please let us know by creating a support ticket in the Flight Briefing Routes category. Please include the origin, destination and given route, so we can take a look and try to improve the routing.

Our live flights page has also been redesigned to use a more modern design. This will also allow us to more easily introduce new features in the future, such as an adding an ETA or distance flown.

We have also updated our route map to include filters for airlines and aircraft. Along with this, we have been able to improve the performance of the route map by quite a bit.

Updated Route Map

We have update all of our Delta routes using the Delta schedule, so they should now be much more accurate. It did resulting in a decrease in the number of routes, but we believe all routes should be present. If not, please let us know by creating a support ticket.

As always, our monthly tour has been published and will be available to fly until the end of the month. The East and West Coast USA tours will be retired and/or replaced next year, so you will only be able to fly these specific tours until the end of this month.

We would also like to remind you we have a Discord server. To join it, use discord.gg/EAKR7Qe.
