Our flight schedules database been updated to accomodate our pilots with the option of utilizing Real World / Real Airline Flight Schedules, we also have included a couple of new features to the scheduling, firstly a FA Link (FlightAware Link) has been added to the table, for any flights that provide both a departure and destination airport, the link will show up, if a pilot clicks on the link, it will open FlightAware in a new tab (or window depending on your own browser configuration) showing the real-world history of flights between the airports, this will be useful if trying to pick an aircraft to fly, want to verify a route, or trying to select a cruise altitude, secondly, pilots can now search for flights by distance now by utilizing the Sort Option, the new regional schedule line up will be
All regional schedules will have the aircraft type listed as "Pilot Choice", pilots can choose any of the airline aircraft for this new format, only Bring Your Own (BYO) aircraft ICAO's shown in the pilots airline hangar can be utilized for these new regional flight schedules
For some pilots, who may wish to fly alternative flights not listed in our database, they can now choose where to fly to or from utilizing any alternative real world / real airline flight schedule data published in FlightAware or Flightradar24 and the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Airline Fleet
Pilot just submit their flight via the BYO Option, eg: Acars Flight Number Prefix, BYOxxxx.

Flightradar24 is a Swedish internet-based service that shows real-time commercial aircraft flight information on a map. It includes flight tracks, origins and destinations, flight numbers, aircraft types, positions, altitudes, headings and speeds. It can also show time-lapse replays of previous tracks and historical flight data by airline, aircraft, aircraft type, area or airport. It aggregates data from multiple sources but, outside of the United States, mostly from crowdsourced information gathering by volunteers with ADS-B receivers. The service was founded as a hobby in 2006 by two Swedish aviation enthusiasts. It is available via a web page or mobile device apps. The Guardian considers the site to be "authoritative".
