Orbx Volanta is a virtual flight tracker, made by Orbx. I’ve had access to it now for a couple of months, and seen the tool progress a lot. In this first look article, I want to give you my thoughts on Volanta and tell you how it works.
Let’s begin with the latter part: how does Volanta work? Volanta integrates perfectly with your flight simulator, Prepar3D v5 in my case. This even happens when you’re not actively using it, but instead just have it running in the background. When you load up your sim and have selected your aircraft, Volanta will automatically add this aircraft (recognised by registration and type) to your fleet. In much the same fashion, Volanta will also keep track of your flights. If you fly from anywhere to anywhere, Volanta will log this as a flight too.
