Flight replay

1       Introduction 

Flight replay 

In this topic, you learn how to download, save, and replay a recording of a completed flight. 

We estimate that this will take 5 minutes to complete.

Replay Overview

Use N-Tracking's replay functionality to download and/or replay a completed flight. You can save the flight locally, gaining access to the event log, replay the flight or upload a flight to the "Cloud". 

The Replay function is split into two separate pages --"Search" and "Archives". On each of these pages, you can download, save, or replay a selected flight. 

Your airline may use nautical miles (nm) for its map scale.
