Just Flight Traffic Global Updated to Support GA Traffic

Today, Just Flight released an update to their product, Traffic Global which now supports general aviation traffic. There are also many other changes to Traffic Global. This update is supported on MacOS and Windows 10.

General aviation traffic with Traffic Global is supported by any airport that allows Traffic Global. This will bring X-Plane 11’s sky to a whole new level of emersion. I have tested this out, and it works very well.

You can learn more information about this update here. If you want to buy Traffic Global for X-Plane 11, you can do so at the Just Flight store for $52.99 USD.
