The FlightTrackerXP application is subscription-based flight tracking software created specifically for MacOS in support of  Laminar Research's X-Plane.

 

It may be downloaded here from Apple's App Store.

 

Once downloaded, you'll be required to complete a few items to set it up.

 


Launch

Once you open up the application, you will want to click on the + at the bottom right to add a virtual airline.

When you click on our airline, it is going to default to smartCARS 2 as the TYPE. You must change this otherwise you will be unable to log in. We do not support FlightTrackerXP on the smartCARS 2 API as of August 15th, 2023.
