These are its main features-

-It adds TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System) and a Palm Spotter, so that you know what flights are coming in and out of the airport that you are at.
-Features Traffic for over 3,000 airports world wide, with parking spaces
-You can print off timetables for airlines and there is a status board that you can listen to and watch.
-There are 40,000 scheduled flights
-Comes with 700 liverys of 40 different Aircraft
-You can add the traffic to any individual airport in the world or delete the traffic from an airport if you wish.
-You can Add Traffic of your own
-It comes with ATC callsigns

Theses are its System requirements-

-Flight Simulator 2002 or 2004
-Windows XP/200
-1.7 GHz Processor
-512 (but works with 256 like what I have)
-1.6GB Hard Drive space

developed by Just Flight and Flight1- www.flight1.com and www.justflight.com

I only have two screenshots, but the other guys can help you there-

AVSIM said "It is a must have for the Simmer that wants realistic traffic"

My opinion
It is the best Add-on that I have purchased and I have loads. It changes you Flight Simulator experience Brilliantly.

I can scan in the cover for you if you want to see it?

The timetable is handy if you wish to create authentic flights. I flew a Delta PMDG 73G from some municipal airport I can't remember the name of to Salt Lake City using a real life flight number (DL1099). Only trouble was the AI version of my flight followed me all the way!! I think it's possible to take out the AI one in this instance. The fact that the aircraft at any given airport would be arriving and departing in real life at that time gives simming great realism. I also saw 3 vodafone Ryanairs at Stansted together! , but again this can be sorted. Great product.

Best bang for the buck IMO as far as AI traffic goes.

Since Squawkbox 3 came out, I have not used it as much as I should, either way its a terrific program. Plus updates are free.

Got UT last week !!

I'm really enjoying it. I now do short domestic flights in various countries just to see the liveries I DID NOT have prior to me purchasing the product.

I got mine on the web for $30 USD.

I highly recommend it!!

Hmmm......maybe mine is not "activated"? I had a few near misses in Tokyo just last night!!......on thew same approach i came very close to a 777 and 767...i think both were ANA.

Still a great add-on

Oh another thing about the timetables- They were only correct from 15th December to 21st December 2003. Despite this, It is still a great tool in Ultimate Traffic and a great asset to it.

They came out with a $5 update in December (Schedule should be correct as of DEC 2004)

Am I the only one here who doesn't seem to like UT very much? In my opinion, which I guess can be construed as prejudicial since I've never used it, the schedules are outdated, the planes supplied aren't very visually appealing, plus I prefer to install my AI traffic manually...

So I guess maybe I don't hate UT, I just prefer to install my AI myself... Does anyone else here feel that way?...

I feel I have better things to do with my time than spend it installing AI traffic.

Schedules are current as of last December.

A/c might not be as appealing, but at least they don't kill your frame rates as other AI a/c do.

Hello,

Well It all seems great! Though I would like to see more screenshots, What do airports like Alderney, Bournemouth ect look like? Is their traffic over the top? I take it I can sort that out if/when I get it?

So say I was flying out of Bournemouth, and an Aer Lingus flew in, Thats not true to life, so would I be able to delete it from flying into Bournemouth, and say put 2 Thomsonfly's into the BOH scedule?

It all seems great, so when my computer has stopped having all it's problems, I will think more about getting it.

Thanks guy's, Still like to see more screenshots, enjoy looking at them.

Hmm...I am not fond of payware add-ons..but in this case, I guess I'll have to go and get it.

I am sooo annoyed by the fact that my default AI are so unrealistic.....

Yepp !!!

That was done to keep the framerates up...if they were as detailed as the "flyable" aircraft in FS9, you wouldn't be able to run FS9...the computer would waste it's resources on trying to display the traffic as detailed as possible...

That is why the AI planes lack the detailes....

Go into the Ultimate Traffic program, Click Utilities (it is one of the main choices at the left hand side. It is beside- Compile, Timetabe and Upgrade)
After you have entered the Utilities section, click Gauges. When you have clicked Gauges you should see a page with a title saying Gauge options. It will say to choose key options to activate the TCAS and Palmspotter. It normally is CTRL+SHIFT+B for TCAS ans CTRL+SHIFT+A for Palmspotter. When you have chosen a shortcut key for both Click Install. It only takes a minute or two...Then play Flight Simulator and use the Shortcut keys that you selected to use them.
It is a great tool  bouncy 

Hope i explaned right
