projectFly will be updated to version 2.1 on the 15th April at 13:00 (BST we assume) and comes with a wealth of new features! The biggest feature will be a new account tier system. Matt Davies, owner of projectFly has made it very clear that it’s a “cancel any time” system if your circumstances change. So projectFly will remain completely free for ‘blue’ members, but those who want enhance their experience can do so.
As long as projectFly grows, so will the list with plenty of updates coming all the time. I personally use projectFly all the time and it’s a great service to help track flights.
Other features include a change to the look and feel of the site including some fixes to the header navigation. Attention was given to the booking system as well, allowing thing like default settings which will be move loved by many users.
The client itself has also been given some updates. Including the ability to view the radar and some settings information as well. I hope that in the future I can book flights directly through the client.
The other huge change is the radar. Released with the initial version, the radar allowed people to view all online traffic in the flight sim community. The radar section has been overhauled to be around 50% faster than before and improvements will continue going forward.
All of this sounds fantastic and to celebrate, the gang will be doing a group flight from Stockholm (ESSA) to Paris (LFPG). To help, Orbx will be throwing a sale of Stockholm, giving 25% off until the event itself. You can buy it from Orbx Direct.
As part of the launch, the team will be giving away free tier membership for those in the chat and on the stream.
You could potentially win:
1 x LIFETIME projectFLY Gold Account Subscription
10 x 1 month projectFLY Gold Account Subscriptions
20 x 1 month projectFLY Silver Account Subscriptions
Lots of great stuff coming from the team. You can watch the stream / take part in the live event. Whilst watching, why not take 10 minutes to read Matt’s interview with us during Developer Month.
