John Wayne Airport (JWA) is pleased to announce the recent upgrade of its web-based Flight Track Viewer, powered by VOLANS. JWA’s Flight Track Viewer, developed by BridgeNet International and originally launched in January 2015, is a 3D software application with a user-friendly interface making it easy for the public to view aircraft flight tracks originating or ending at JWA online, as well as overflights within the surrounding airspace at any time of day. Through VOLANS, aircraft flight tracking data can be displayed in satellite or street map layers. It features an address locator tool that enables users to identify a specific location, like a home or office, relative to the flight(s) being researched.

One of the highlighted benefits of the upgrade includes the ability to utilize the application on mobile devices. Additionally, users are able to view flights from a pilot’s perspective or a bird’s eye view in near real-time or historical playback mode, as well as the aircraft’s type, origin/destination, altitude, heading and flight number.

Supported browsers include Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge, although Chrome is preferred. To access the application and online user’s manual, please visit www.ocair.com/communityrelations/flighttracking.
