Just Flight Updates Traffic Global X-Plane

Just Flight Traffic Global X Plane 11 New Oc (8)

A significant update to Just Flight’s Traffic Global on X-Plane 11 has been released. The new update, since the original release fixes plenty of issues, added some new features and generally improved many little bugs in-line with community feedback.

A few highlights from the massive changelog below include the addition of landing lights to all aircraft models, new schedules for cargo aircraft, improvements to the lighting logic and also a potential fix to random crashing when replacing aircraft. The new update has also fixed some issues with aircraft pushback, added handling for military-only runways and much more.

When we spoke to Scott from Just Flight earlier today, he also told us what the future for the product holds. In the New Year, we can expect some bigger updates, which will include GA aircraft, along with MAC compatibility for those users. There will, of course, be smaller updates throughout as well to patch any bugs or smaller changes.

You can pick up a copy of Just Flight Traffic Global from the Just Flight store for £34.99.
