FlightAware Live Surface Movement Beta

Recommended Posts

Anyone checked out the Live Surface Movement Beta on FlightAware?    Wonder if that data could be used for planes taxing in MSFS?  I am an average computer user so I figured I would bring it up here and see what some of the Einstein's in the computer world would think of this.

I don't believe RealTraffic uses FlightAware data, but check out PSXT and RealTraffic.

it seems the beta feature is available after you select an airport to track.

Wow, just checked it out. Very nice addition to FlightAware.

Is it though? Seems like all they have done is carved away anything on the ground into a separate interface that they will no doubt package and sell separately. 

Compare to what you see on FR24 and I think there is little difference.

Looks like FR24 but with less. Comparing my local airport and FR24 shows more aircraft as well as ground vehicles.

Yeah I am not partial to either flight tracker.  Just wasn't sure the MSFS community could do anything with that data.

Actually, look at a specific airport (in US, with suspected traffic active at this moment) and there's a banner "All New: Live Surface Movement BETA" and a button TRY NOW
For example, San Francisco Int'l Airport : https://www.flightaware.com/live/airport/KSFO/surface

Best hope is that Microsoft/Asobo, with the next version MSFS2024, had access to this feature and process it. During the last Dev Q/A they mentionned, new processes with FlightAware to enhance (fix?) the Live Traffic missing departure/destination data. Let's imagine something feasible with this ground feature.

I receive the Flightaware newsletter and this was in the last one which said, in part: 

 

Do you have connections to an FBO? Let us know!

An FBO, or fixed-based operator, is a commercial operation that provides aviation services to airports and hangars. We have many FlightFeeders installed at FBOs throughout the world. They make for excellent locations for FlightFeeder installations as they are generally next to airports.....FlightFeeders directly on airports can improve coverage...."

 

This was accompanied by a a couple of before/after images of a US airport which teased an impressive increase in ground traffic movements.

No. No, Mav, this is not a good idea.

That would be nice to have if you like to shadow a real flight which I just did last Monday when daughter and hub flew from KRNO to KDEN.  I used Real Time Online traffic for this (which is fine at non busy terminals performance-wise) and fortunately saw them taxiing for TO in-sim:
