Aircraft Labels

This topic will teach you how to create aircraft labels so that flight information can appear on the map for the associated aircraft.

There can be only a maximum of six data fields per label from the current list.
 

        Aircraft registration

        Aircraft type

        Airline code

        Destination (To)

        ETA (Estimated time of Arrival)

        Flight ID

        Altitude

        Flight Number

        Latitude (in degrees)

        Longitude (in degrees)

        OFF time (take-off time)

        Origin (From)

        Ground Speed (in knots)

        Squawk (transponder code)

        Position source (ADSB or ACARS)

        Track (orientation in degrees 000-359)

        Vertical Speed (in feet per minute)
 

Once the label has been created you can assign it to one or more aircraft.

Your chosen fields will be visible when you hover your mouse over an aircraft.
