Paragraph snipped from email received.Behind the scenes, we've been quietly re-writing the way fboweb.com processes the FAA data we receive. This new method, in conjunction with a re-design of some of the key features of the site, has allowed us to come up with some amazing new services not found anywhere else!
Here are some of the cool new features available with this special QuickTrack BETA:
Use your mouse to drag a box around an area on the map for complete custom zoom
Running “ATC Log” shows an ongoing list of ATC clearances; see route changes, altitude changes, and more
Integration with LiveATC.net for suggested real-time live audio feeds of ATC frequencies - hear the pilots!
View the entire track or just a portion
Overlay with Google Maps, or use the standard map for weather & terrain
List the 10 most recent flights the aircraft has flown
Uses AJAX “Web 2.0” technologies for a faster experience and a clean, automatically updating display
Sooo, I test drove this website using my tail number as they have opened the beta website to the public.
I did like one tab that shows the liveatc feed sites I may have flown through. I didn’t realize Louisville had a feed, which was nice to see.
Another tab showed the flight plan and also ATC log, but both were empty, probably because I sit on the ground or it may be a beta issue.
My track was prematurely terminated where as here they were fully tracked here. This doesn’t appear to be a beta related issue as the flights were in the past.
You cannot click on past history flights. This may be a beta related issue or something one has to pay for, it wasn’t clear.
The track indicated on the map had my flight from KBWG to 2G2. I have flown since then back home. So, again, maybe beta related since the flights were captured. The ugly part is the track is way off my flight path and was not completed.
None of the features listed in the email worked. This could be because active content is disabled on my work computer, I don’t know.
I probably could go on more on what didn’t work, but the word BETA does come front and center
