Anyone else notice new FlightAware updates?

Submitted
Must be the next phase for Flight Tracker. Lots of flight paths going on on my tracker tonight. Seems to to be a bit more colorful too. Anyone else noticing this? (flightaware.com) More...

We increased the contrast of the text labels and improved the logic for how many and which aircraft to label. Hope you enjoy!

Flightaware has and alwaya will be the best tracker program. i use it to track my friends on n777ag all the time.

It is still kind of hard to track when the view is aviation sectional. Would it be better if the planes and type was black in the view? Other than that I love it and it looks great.

FA is agreat website. It would be nice if, when one posts a comment, we had a chance to edit it before it publishes.
Thank you

It looks great .. Almost looks like a radar .. how about a circular sweep to refresh, rather than screen going blank ?

I like FA but I think Australia is a forgotten Country when compared to data available to US users.
It would be nice addition to FA if we here in Australia could display data similar to the US maps, as well as details such as:

A) Flight Sectors
B) Weather
C) Major Waypoints*
D) Major Flight Paths*
E) Major Towns & their airports. **

As an ex-pilot and workshop production manager I like to listen to the Airband while watching and tracking flights over Australia. Due to Rx linking in my region, I am able to monitor any flight in the YBBB Centres & YBBN Control Zones. I was grounded on medical conditions

1) * Details available: http://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/pending/dah/dah.pdf
2) ** FA does not display any airports when you select “Nearby Airports” from the menu.
The only airports displayed are the Capital Cities and one major International airport Cairns (YBCS). E.g. Try entering YBBN or Brisbane and see what I mean. Major airports such Archerfield YBAF; Sunshine Coast YBSU; Gold Coast YBCG & lesser airports YCDR; YRED; YAMB (Mil); YTWB; YBOK (Mil) etc are not shown.

http://webtrak.bksv.com/bne is an Airservice Australia site to allow monitoring of acft noise, therefore has limited range, but it shows a lot of detail e.g. Helicopters; Light Acft & Heavies are clearly defined and you can see the locality position clearly.

What I don't like is that the flights from the past now show the current radar. Here is an example. There was no rain on this route when I flew it. Now it is raining in Houston on 6/8 at 6 p.m. ... and it shows the current radar. Am I just missing something?

Is there any way to get a satellite view while tracking? Or am I just doing it wrong?

The missing historical weather was a bug/regression that should be fixed now.

is Flightaware available in South Africa? I would like to use it to track my students when they go on cross countries...

Thanx

South Africa is not currently in our primary service area, so we only have limited flight data for certain airlines that might operate there, and not any GA flights.

now if they could just track an ifr flight completely and correctly, never mind going back to be able to do it for vfr.

I enjoy the info, is there a way to turn off info on every flight where you just have the aircraft ?
sbord
scott bloom 1
well is there any way to turn off all the clutter if i wish to concentrate on one flight ?

Just use the airline code and flightnumber or easier yet. Just click on the flight icon you want to track.

Today's changes now let you hover over a specific flight to see the infoblock and route for only that one flight.
