MAC Improves FlightTracker Experience

Last week, the MAC Noise Program Office updated its FlightTracker tool by reducing the time delay for real-time flight information. The "Real Time" display on FlightTracker previously showed flight activity in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area with a 20-minute delay.

The flights available on FlightTracker are now presented to customers as early as is allowed by the data provider.
