PMDG Global Flight Operations Appears Online

PMDG 748 Mountainflying

PMDG’s highly anticipated Global Flight Operations has appeared publicly available online. This was made aware to us by a Facebook community member. The product has not been officially released yet, but the site is accessible and most features seem to be working. It’s unclear to us if this public availability is intended or not.

The homepage interface right now is just a flight map, with little to show other than a day/night overlay. Though it would seem likely that you can see active flights here once the tool goes live for the public. Another feature that seem to be somewhat working is airport maps. Here you can select between PIREPS or ‘airports with gate info’, which for now seems to be supported by a significant though limited number of airports. On these airport maps you can see gates that have gate data and gates that need additional data. What kind of additional data is required is yet unclear, and selecting the gates didn’t do anything to provide more info.

You can also view the current flight data, which has been built up so far by members of the PMDG team. You can see leaderboards for aircraft and people, as well as the most recent flights. Selecting the airlines that people have flown, or the aircraft, will open a map for that particular airline or aircraft and see their flight data on a map. PMDG seems to be using GFO a lot with their 747, but the recently released Boeing 737-800 and 737-900 also make an appearance in the most recent flights.

Global Flight Operations is currently in closed beta. We got an update about a nearing release back in July, when PMDG shared with us that Global Flight Operations was ‘closer than ever to a release’, and a calendar date for this had been set. At that time, the team wasn’t quite ready to share this date with us.
