As already mentioned, the developer shared a new partnership series update. In this one, they introduced FlightAware. It is an aviation intelligence company that provides real-time predictive flight insights to all the biggest players in aviation. They are getting datas from thousands of sources all over the world and then they are putting it into simulator with Machine Learning and AI to give the most accurate predictions on where a flight is and where it’s going.

FlightAware is also offering a FlightFeeder box, for people who live in areas where FlightAware needs a better coverage for free.

With this FlightAware data, Asobo Studio will be able to provide us with the most accurate AI aircraft comparing to the real world directly in the simulator.
