Do you fly a lot in Europe? Have a look at European Virtual Airlines
Or do you fly all over the planet? Then have a look at Atlas Virtual Airlines

I'm taking a look. It seems the tracker went down again.
Yep. My last tracked flight was yesterday, and I've been flying all day. Dang. Have you contacted the admin? I guess I will, just in case you didn't.

you can still file a pirep for that, and it will be approved. otherwise atlas wouldnt have any filed pireps every time the tracker went down..

None of my flight time for the last few days has been tracked. The last time this happened I lost 3 days of flight time and all of the flights I made for a couple weeks cannot be reviewed. As well, the MP maps seem to be acting "odd". MP05 seems to be the only one I can see anyone on but it is definitely not tracking flights.

How does one report this officially to the person maintaining it? Does anyone know? :?

It's possible that the tracker watches for flights on mpserver01, which is down at the moment. If you check their main site, the mpmap (which listens on mpserver01) shows 0 pilots! :shock:

None of the tracked servers appear to be tracking anymore, and what you pointed out seems to show that mpserver01 is down. I doubt we can do anything other than wait for the admin to fix the tracker.

Bummer. I hope it's fixed by tomorrow, or I might not be able to participate in the world race. :(

Really?! Dang. Well, I'll still challenge you, and anyone else who wants to try, to beat my time at your leisure.

Well, I'll probably be able to stay in, but I'll need to make some schedule changes. If the tracker isn't back up by Sunday, that 11-hour leg from Miami to Cairo is DEFINITELY not going to be the second leg I fly. ;)

Speaking of Miami - Cairo, I hope my 777 can make it. From what I can gather from Wikipedia the -200ER should have plenty of range (7000+ NM), but FlightGear's 777 is based on the -200 AND -200ER, so... :roll:

Skyop just reported that the tracker is back online, but failed to mention it here, so I'm doing that for him. Now, I haven't heard at all from the admin, so I hope it really is back. Unfortunately, I have no idea which servers have and have not yet been reset for tracking yet.

According to here (you MUST be registered and logged in to the site) it is. ;)

Well, still I lost nearly 20 hours of flight time tracked... :shock: :lol:

Dang it. I'll have to see if it's really tracking again.
