Orbx’s flight tracking application, Volanta, has seen numerous updates over the last few weeks since release, but the most recent update adds a number of changes and improvements which are worth highlighting.
The most significant part of the update comes with the new advanced search tags integrated with the application. When on the flight page, you are now able to sort and search with a number of different filters. You can simply type in things such as the origin, destination, registration and aircraft type directly into the box to filter your flights.
Other changes include improved flight metadata storage, updated translations and also a variety of improvements to the flight plan import system. For example, departure and arrival information is picked up better, along with a minor UI improvement to show the whole route upon import at the right zoom level.
The new update will automatically be downloaded once you load up the tool from your desktop. If you don’t already have Volanta, you can download it from the website.
Volanta is a freely available flight tracking tool from Orbx that works across all major flight simulator platforms and includes automatic flight tracking abilities, 3D maps and an easy-to-use interface.
