Just got this today. A plug for LiveATC.net is included.
Free public BETA for our new flight tracker!
Behind the scenes, we've been quietly re-writing the way fboweb.com processes the FAA data we receive. This new method, in conjunction with a re-design of some of the key features of the site, has allowed us to come up with some amazing new services not found anywhere else!
We'd like to have you help us test out one of the new features, so we've temporarily opened up access to this service to the public! You do not need to be a current subscriber to fboweb.com in order to check out this new service... all you need is a free registered account (if you don't have one already, you can create one by going to http://www.fboweb.com/register
Here are some of the cool new features available with this special QuickTrack BETA:
Use your mouse to drag a box around an area on the map for complete custom zoom
Running "ATC Log" shows an ongoing list of ATC clearances; see route changes, altitude changes, and more
Integration with LiveATC.net for suggested real-time live audio feeds of ATC frequencies - hear the pilots!
View the entire track or just a portion
Overlay with Google Maps, or use the standard map for weather & terrain
List the 10 most recent flights the aircraft has flown
Uses AJAX "Web 2.0" technologies for a faster experience and a clean, automatically updating display
The new flight tracking option is just the start in a series of new features on the horizon!
To try this new QuickTrack2 feature, you must click to http://www.fboweb.com/fb40/s/tr/qt2.aspx
! The feature is not found on any specific menu on the website; you must use this address.
We plan to switch over to this new QuickTrack and eliminate the older version before year's end, so please give it a try and let us know what you think. Since this is a BETA service, there may very well be bugs... so don't hesitate to let us know! We'd love to hear your comments, and your feedback is always welcome! See you online, and stay tuned for additional information on more new features.
NOTE: This free BETA is only temporary. When the feature goes live, it will be part of the Basic Flight Tracking subscription plan.
PS: Feel free to email this to a friend!
