Came across a link on the NBAA Airmail discussions. It's a BETA version of a relatively new free flight tracking site. http://flightaware.com/ It seems to do everything the pay sites do. The mapping feature is cool and so is the way it automatically pulls up an aircraft's history when you click on the tail number. Check out the Mobile Device tab. It allows you to text the service from your phone and it will text you back selected METARs and TAFs. It's pretty cool. And it's FREE! For now at least. You don't have to register to access the basic features. Have fun.

I need to learn how to fly straight..zig zag zig zag...

I guess maybe it needs some work. Has my flight plan from TPF to VRB..but my flighttrack from VRB to EVB.

Pretty neat how it knows the track...how do they get the radar data?

That's pretty cool. I can't believe that it is free.

Hope it stays that way.
