Compatibility with the smartCARS flight tracking system

Published on 24/04/2023 at 09:28

Over the past few weeks, our technical team has been working hard to enable FlyZold to retrieve your flight data through the smartCARS flight tracker.

The smartCARS system is a flight tracking software made for Flight Simulator X, Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D, Laminar Research's X-Plane, and Microsoft Flight Simulator. This flight tracking software is purchased by airline administrators and given to pilots to allow the recording and filing of their flights (source: https://tfdidesign.com/smartCARS.php).

Thanks to smartCARS, each pilot is able to retrieve the different PIREPs attached to him, but also to search for one or more schedules or to track his flight data in real time.

As you can see, the smartCARS flight tracker allows each virtual airline to communicate with our infrastructure so that we can analyze and transcribe your data in a more pleasant and readable way (such as charts or dashboards).

Our next objective is to develop our online payment system first, then the different interfaces that will allow virtual airlines to administer its content and allow its users to use our CMS.

What is FlyZold ?

FlyZold is a virtual airline management system that allows virtual airlines to manage simply and efficiently their content through our simple and unique interface.

We believe that our solution will bring new impetus to flight simulation, more particularly by bringing a touch of modernity to the existing system by offering even more advanced technologies and by offering an even more advanced interface that can adapt to the majority of virtual airlines.

A virtual airline simulates the operations of a real airline or has been invented from scratch and offers virtual pilots, after registration, the possibility to make regular flights between different destinations, helicopter flights, or cargo flights.

Generally, the flight performed is recorded either automatically by a software called "flight tracker" (our solution uses for example the smartCARS software) during the flight, or after the flight directly on the FlyZold interface of the virtual airline where virtual pilots publishes a manual flight report.

The flight report is called a "PIREP". It includes information related to the aircraft used, the departure and arrival airports, the altitude, the flight time and more generally all the events that occurred during the flight.

Each PIREP is then saved by our system and can be found in the virtual pilot's logbook, where each PIREP can be consulted to find all the information related to it presented in the form of graphs, maps or dashboards.

A virtual airline management system is a web application that makes it simple and easy to manage the various contents of a virtual airline.

The functionalities of a virtual airline management system are numerous. Among other things, it allows several people to work on different pages or blog articles or even to structure the content of a virtual airline (FAQ, articles, blog), to prioritize users and assign them permissions.

FlyZold is a virtual airline management system allowing administrators of virtual airlines to manage all of their content (airports, aircraft, schedules, PIREPs, users) efficiently and fluidly, through a modern and elegant interface.

To create your own virtual airline, you need to follow certain rules, depending on the airline you represent.

In the case of a fictitious airline, you need to make sure that it doesn't exist, and that you have all the copyright you need to create it (including names, logos, etc...). In the case of a real airline, you must first obtain all the necessary authorizations from the real airline you want to represent in order to represent it virtually.

Once you have all the necessary authorizations, all you have to do is create your first airports, aircraft, grades and schedules in our virtual airline management system by clicking on the "Subscribe now" button in the main navigation menu.
