Orbx Releases Volanta for Public Use

Volanta Flight Tracker

After a few months of closed-beta testing, Orbx’s Volanta is now available for the public to sign up to and use. The all-new flight tracker app works across all major flight simulator platforms and includes automatic flight tracking abilities, 3D maps and an easy-to-use interface

One of the unique features of Volanta is the fact that it will start tracking automatically without going through various pages or menus to set things up. Once installed, Volanta will begin tracking your flight, capture your aircraft type and registration. This functionality works across multiple platforms. The map of Volanta serves as your primary hub where you will be able to see traffic within Volatna and on other online networks. The application can also show you the latest ATIS and controller info and you can also integrate with Navigraph to see an overlay of navdata such as airways and fixes.

Other features worth mentioning is the ability to easily import your data from projectFly, SimToolKitPro and also via your online networks. You can then assign pre-existing aircraft to these flights and continue building up your virtual log for the world to see. You will be able to share flights, view friends and even take part in various challenges around the world to unlock badges and other goodies within the app. Finally, you are able to look up any airport and see who has visited it most often, the month you flew most in and your own personal achievements.

Whilst Volanta is free to use, there will be some premium features added in the future to further enhance the product. More details on those features have yet to be disclosed, but we’ll continue to follow any development and inform you in due course. You can read more about the improvements made during its time in beta here.

Volanta is free to download right now from the new website. We’ll be sharing our first impressions on the new flight tracker soon.
