Public launch!

OpenFlights was officially launched yesterday, along with a new blog:

http://openflights.org/blog/

Countless small changes since my last update, mostly just bug-fixing and cosmetic/usability enhancements though. One new feature worth mentioning is the super filter though, so you can pick up eg. only flights in business class, or over/under 1000 miles in length, or with certain tags/keywords in your descriptions.

I'm loving your site, I got close to 400k miles logged.

I'm wondering if there is any way to set up the "top ten" so it would show the top 25...

Thanks again

Added to Feature Requests, get a few more people to support the idea and I just might do it.

Give your flights a spin in 3D on Google Earth

Feature of the day: OpenFlights now supports 3D mapping through Google Earth!



Just export your flights as KML and load the result into Google Earth, or any other visualization program that supports KML, and you'll get an interactive 3D flight map. More about it on the blog:

Very good and useful tool
I have my flight records (in Excel) from as early as 1958 (with exact dates since 1985, and with plane registrations from 1987).
I hope to fill the records soon...

Another heads-up: OpenFlights is now available in multiple languages.

Translated so far are Finnish, French, Japanese and Russian, and in the works we have German, Polish and Swedish. If you'd like to help out with any of these, or start a different language, check this for instructions...

http://openflights.org/blog/2009/06/...act-localized/

...and drop me a line! No technical skills needed, just language ability.

...and now OpenFlights has airport route maps as well, covering over 53,000 (!) routes with scheduled airline traffic. See separate thread:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?p=38828384

And here's what it would look like if you mapped them all

Facebook changes, please update

Facebook went and changed their APIs , so if you're using the OpenFlights app to post your flights on Facebook, please check out this blog entry:

http://openflights.org/blog/2010/01/...sting-flights/

This explains how to grant the new permissions needed to keep the app running. Sorry about the inconvenience

Digging up an old post - but great program/website jpatokal! I've used flightmemory for sometime now and just come across Open Flights and it's great. Very clean, easy to use and looks good. Keep up the great work.
