ProjectFLY Desktop App Now Available to Download

ProjectFLY 2018 01 29 23 51 45

The ProjectFLY team has released the downloadable desktop app for their flight tracking and community tool. A couple of weeks ago, the team released the web-based version which brought the latest version of the tool to version 3. The new version came with a new design, new content and faster servers.

The new update also paved way for the app to be ready. The new desktop app will allow you to sync it up to your sim and track your flights using it. It emulates the web-based version so whichever one you use, it’s the same. I’ve included some screenshots below showcasing some of the features included. Furthermore, you can even access the latest news and information from FSElite direct from the app! You can download it from here.

For those unaware, here’s a brief summary of what projectFLY is. Its primary function is to be able to give the community a space to log their flights across multiple sim platforms and operating systems, as well as engage in community content. The custom built system will allow users, for free, to create an account and start tracking their movements in the sim. Everything from route, flight time, fuel burned and speed is included. All this information is contained on your account and even individual aircraft frames are kept track of. All of these details can also be seen on a mass radar which displays the flight details of all online projectFLY users, and if you choose, those flying with other online networks. Imagine Flightradar24, but for flight sim.

You don’t need to be part of a VA, nor do you need to fly online – it’s an additional tool to enhance your experience.

Further to that, you can connect your SimBrief account or use the in-built dispatch system to plan your flights. This will then give you accurate fuel burns, routing and loads. There’s also a community forum and achievement system to engage you further. Finally if you’re a streamer, you can take advantage of the tools to enhance your livestream on Twitch.

There’s an awful lot to cover, so I suggest you check out the site’s page for more information.

You can watch The Flight Sim Deck’s video on what projectFLY is and how to use it.
