Multiple Airplane Status & Track with Single API Call

I can’t find in the documentation how to do this, and I’m hoping its not because you can’t. I’m looking to track multiple aircraft on a map with current location and track. Looks like I can only poll one plane and track at a time. Is this correct?

For returning the track for a current or historical flight then on one flight can be queried at a time.

However, for searching currently active flights to retrieve latest position and planned waypoints (when avalible) SearchBridseyeInflight can be used to return multiple different flights in one query.

I see this for V2 of the API, but is there similar available in V3?

FlightXML v3 beta is currently incomplete and does not have the equivalent functionality of SearchBirdseyeInFlight at this time. We have no timeframe for that availability right now.
