Volanta v1.8 is now available! 

Recommended Posts



Volanta v1.8 has some exciting new features, including Teams, allowing users to create groups, invite friends, share stats, create leaderboards, and even chat. 

We’ve also added enhanced functionalities like filtering departing and arriving flights, improved search capabilities, added altitude to tooltips, squawk, and vertical speed display to flights, and much more!


What’s new? 

  • Teams! Users can create teams, invite other users, set an icon and banner, and change the color team members show up on the map. Users can see statistics and leaderboards as well as chat with their fellow team members

  • Added image cropping to aircraft image uploads

  • Viewing an airport on the map now filters departing and arriving flights from that airport

  • Added altitude to flight tooltips

  • Added squawk and vertical speed display to flights

  • Flights squawking an emergency number now show up in red on the map

  • Numerous performance improvements are on the map

  • New aircraft icons for the BAe Hawk, T-6 Texan, C152, SR22

  • Improved the search experience by preferring exact matches for usernames and airport codes

  • Numerous improvements to parties: added a button to scroll to the bottom, an in-session unread message counter, line breaks (with SHIFT + ENTER), and doubled message length

  • Parties are now temporary and are automatically disbanded 72 hours after creation. Use teams to party permanently! Existing parties are not affected, only newly created ones.









What did we fix?

In addition to all the new features, we’ve also spent time fixing a few things from the last update. Check below for a list of fixes and updates. Lots more new features are coming your way soon, so stay tuned!

  • Fixed intermittent “couldn’t connect to server error” when uploading screenshots
  • Fixed the number of screenshots available to free users not always resetting to 3 for multiple flights in the same session
  • Clarified the behavior of the “save below 5000 ft” checkbox in the autosave settings
  • Disabled US sectional charts for now as the service we were using is no longer available, we’ll be working on bringing it back in the future
