With please we would like to announce an upgrade of our website. We have now added a Departure TV board (just check -> Operations -> Departure TV), where you can see current departures and arrivals from/to any airport of our network. This is quite interesting for everybody who would like to book a flight which is departing within the next hours and without long search in our flightbooking system. Furthermore our registration page has been enhanced. You can now only select typeratings for aircrafts, which are serving the hub,which you have chosen.
We would like to thank Leslie for his dedication and work to further improve our flywoh experience!
Flight Tracker for X-Plane

woh|group virtual airlines announces that pilots that fly X-Plane 11 on Apple OSX can now use a flight tracker developed natively for macOS for submitting simulated X-Plane flights to smartCARS based on our virtual airline. The Flight Tracker is called "FlicktTracker for X-Plane" and can be acquired via the Apple Mac OSX APP store. A guide to integrate the connection to our flywoh server will be provided by our pilot Leslie in our Forum and on Discord.

Notes from the Author of FlightTracker XP:
This project originated from my hobby of flight simulation. Two things were important for me during the development. Firstly, the communication with XPlane is done with the native UDP interface and therefore no additional plugins are required. Secondly, that the client remains freely configurable by pilots. A subscription is required to use this app. By doing so you support me as a hobby developer and allow me to keep the app up to date and add improvements and new features in the future. During the one-month trial period, for both the monthly and annual subscription, you can try Flight Tracker for X-Plane for free. Later payments will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. Subscription automatically renews at least 24-hours before the end of the current period for the same price. You can disable auto-renew at any time up to 24 hours before the end of the subscription period in your account settings. If you disable auto-renewal, you will still have unlimited use of Flight Tracker for X-Plane until the end of the current payment period. Any unused portion of a free trial period will be forfeited when the user No relations to TFDi Design.
My client offered here is not related to TFDi Design and has neither the same technical structure nor the same functionality. For compatibility reasons I simply transfer the data in the same way to the virtual airline.

Annual Meeting 2022
Posted by Florian Brunner on 2022/01/24
on Saturday, May 7th, our next Annual Meeting takes place.
This year, we have decided to switch back to a physical meeting at our Group`s Headquarter in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The meeting will start at around 11 a.m. local time at Frankfurt Airport. There we will start with an guided airport tour or we will visit the various spotter points of the airport. After that, we will hold the "official part" of the Annual Meeting in a restaurant or meeting room (depending on the number of participants). This means, we will review the last year, will have a look at the next 12 months and we will discharge and confirm the board members. The "official part" will end at around 5 p.m.
We are also planning an optional evening program. If interested, we will visit our fixed based flight simulator partner "Flugsimulator Frankfurt" for an exclusive simulator booking and after that we will visit Flo`s house (or a youth hostel; also depending on number of participants) for an "all night"-flight simulator session.
We are looking forward to see you soon in Frankfurt!
