What Can FSFK Do For You?

FS Flight Keeper (FSFK) combines three programs in one: A Logbook, a basic Aircraft Black Box and a Flight Weather planning tool. The Logbook keeps track of the flights you made. It stores Flight Times (also Day and Night), Fuel used, Pilot, Aircraft used, etc. Whilst the Black Box logs all aircraft events like autopilot settings, engine settings, weather, etc. FSFK also features flight weather planning (METARs, TAFs and ALOFTs), data export, configurable flight critique, World Map display and much more.

FS Flight Keeper contains some features for Virtual Airlines (VA), which need a standardized way of logging and transmitting flights. FS Flight Keeper can transmit fully customizable flight reports via Email or any available Web Service (page). FSFK also offers realtime (live) ACARS. This means that ACARS messages are created in realtime and automatically transmitted to an existing Virtual Airline Web Service. The service can then store and process the received messages. Virtual Airline (live ACARS) Traffic can displayed on the World Map.

All trial registrations have been removed, so everyone can download a new trial. The update is free for all registered users. A new Virtual Airline Software Development Kit (SDK) will explain how to implement FSFK VA services. A complete sample service is also included.
