Registered users of the previous versions of the flight tracker need to get access to a new license key for downloading the latest version. This license key is available free of charge for the registered users of the flight tracker software.

Based on the experience of developing flight tracker software for simulated flights, developers have tried to come with a service that would be able to track the real time flights in the aviation industry.
