FlightAware (Booth 545) is making business jet flight tracking even more accessible to businesses and individuals with the introduction of a lower-cost option to its Global program, which now includes three levels of service: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

Global Silver, which starts at $60 per month or $600 per year, provides real-time data for flight tracking, gives "ready to taxi" alerts and automated status and weather updates, and helps with FBO coordination. Clients of FlightAware's Global platforms can add other stakeholders to their accounts, such as FBO operators, dispatchers, ground support, business associates, and family members to seamlessly share the flight-tracking details and other data. Matt Davis, v-p of sales, likens the sharing feature to  "a single source of truth" for flight departments and other FlightAware customers.

The next level of Global Gold starts at $140 per month or $1,400 per year and provides selective unblocking for account users who regularly use blocked tail numbers for privacy reasons. It also now allows the user's chosen network to have access to all tracking information regarding that flight. Global Platinum, which costs $2,950 per year, includes a more robust and worldwide level of tracking ability via Aireon's space-based ADS-B satellites, along with all of the benefits of the Silver and Gold plans.
