Do you have an airband receiver (a simple radio that may receive aviation communications)?
These kind of radios may be found in any electronics shop. In the USA they are usually found at any Walmart or Radio Shack Store. A simple $80 USD receiver will do a good work. Check this page for airband receivers.
Turn on your radio and depending on the country you are in, select the proper ACARS frequency (131. 550 in the USA, 131. 725 in Europe, read AirNav ACARS Decoder Help for details). Then with a simple audio cable, connect the audio output of your radio to the line-in of your sound card. Using AirNav ACARS Decoder you will start to receive thousands of digital messages sent from aircraft and ground stations.
This type of communications between aircraft and ground stations is called ACARS. For more details about it please visit the best site about ACARS on the Internet, www. acarsonline. co. uk

Flight Simulator in not a Simulation anymore!
What is it about? No longer your traffic will follow the published schedules of airlines, as first generation AI traffic products did, or optimized schedules for the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 world, as MyTraffic does - now you will jump into the traffic as it is in real world - your simulation will initiate one minute before you fire up Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004.
Every canceled flight, every delay, every extra flight will show up, live instead of records.
Sounds complicated? Not at all. You just start a small program that fetches the necessary data from AirNav Systems servers and starts a converter that creates a traffic scenery file - once this is done you start Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. No longer you waste your time with optimizing traffic - you are live.
