Our favorite use of VirTower is the ATC map and flight tags for tracking aircraft movements on the ground at RDU during peak AM/PM hours and zoomed out for in-range redeye arrivals on the overnight shifts. We like the predictor lines that emphasize rate of speed and direction of travel for airborne and taxiing aircraft. Another advantage of using the ATC tags is ICAO callsign identification for regional jet operators.
Delta, American, and United all have similar regional jet operators with the same aircraft type and very similar flight numbers, making it hard to identify callsigns and operators for controllers and reporting procedures. The ICAO identification alleviates those challenges.
We’re very pleased with the product and its capabilities.
