Here is the main map screen. It is presented as a GoogleMap and includes the ability to toggle on/off features such as current cloud cover and current temperatures throughout the world. If there are any flights currently being flown, you will see an aircraft icon for each flight as well as a flight entry at the bottom of the map with the following visible information:
Below is a series of pictures showing each tab displayed when double-clicking on an aircraft icon. Keep in mind that on some payware aircraft, the information listed here might not be 100% correct due to these aircrafts using custom offsets for that specific data.
Here you will see the pilot's name, pilot ID #, airline or carrier, how many passengers or in this case, how much cargo on board, origin and destination airports, last ACARS update, FS Version, LD version and FSUIPC version. You will also see the logo of the carrier as well as the logo of the FS version being used.
If the pilot has LiveVIEW enabled in his LD settings, the FS logo will be swapped out for a LIVE SCREENSHOT of the pilot's desktop screen which gets updated frequently. This will allow any viewer to see an actual screenshot from within the cockpit of the aircraft or whatever view the pilot has enabled in FS for that matter. Whatever the pilot is seeing, the viewer on Flight Tracker will also see. Sort of like a virtual jump seat!
Here you will get real-time data for the flight in progress.
In this tab, you will also get more data and even see what aircraft is actually being used in FS.
Here you can see the status of the lights inside and outside of the aircraft.
Here you can see what the autopilot settings are for the flight. These can be hit and miss with payware aircrafts, since they for the most part use custom FSUIPC offsets for their autopilots. The offsets on this page are based on default offsets as per the FS and FSUIPC SDKs.
When you single-click on an aircraft icon, it will display 2 lines. One black dotted line and one red solid line which represent the following:
