Aviation database for travellers, planespotters and enthusiasts: search for flights, airports, airlines and airplanes data. Live flight tracking and free flight status notifications. Airlines routes, age of the plane, airports statistics. Traditional and planespotting flight schedules ans timetables.
Last weeks were not rich on new features. I mostly concentrated on improving and maintaining existing ones.
Flight tracking is operational for all live airports (apart from London Stansted). Live and non-live flight tracking added for more airports resulting into 826 supported airports (214 of which are live).
Site performance is significantly improved by improving memory and CPU usage, reorganizing data storage and refactoring of old code. Now flight search and schedules pages are much more fast and stable in terms of loading time. Less waiting is always good.
Due to improved data storage, duration of flight data storage will also be increased. Currently SpotterLead tracks times and status for around 3 millions flights.
