I have tried it and have the software and everything to use it... Its only for aircraft flying near your house. You hook your scanner up to your pc. Tune it to a frequency... Little radio transmissions (no voice, it sounds like a video game) come thru the scanner and the Airvav program will read the info from the radio and tell you what airline, aircraft, including registration it is... But, it might not be anywhere near you... You also had to update the flight info in your program (I believe I got it off airnav) with flight numbers so it will display where the flights are going and coming from.. It was OK, but, I suggest using http://www.fboweb.com

I just looked and was about ready to post! I did indeed have the ACARS program. The Live Flight tracking program here looks great, but... Ill continue paying my $9.95 a month for http://www.fboweb.com The price and I hate being limited as to how much time I have.
AirNav Live Flight Tracking - Realtime flight display for your computer
AirNav Live Flight Tracking
AirNav Live Flight Tracking US$ 64.95
Register AirNav Live Flight Tracking - 900 minutes
30 hours/month Register AirNav Live Flight Tracking - 1800 minutes
60 hours/month Register AirNav Live Flight Tracking - 3600 minutes
How does the payment work?
AirNav Live Flight Tracking requires a permanent connection to AirNav Systems server, from where it permanently downloads flight data. Because of this reason the license to use the software has limitations.
There are three time options available when registering:
15 hours / month - AirNav Live Flight Tracking 900 minutes
30 hours / month - AirNav Live Flight Tracking 1800 minutes
60 hours / month - AirNav Live Flight Tracking 3600 minutes
All three options are valid for 6 months after registration date.
After this period and if you want to continue to use the software you will need to renew your registration.

How well does the Airnav system cover trans-atlantic traffic and traffic to and from Iceland (most trans-atlantic traffic is handled by the Icelandic CAA)? If the coverage is good, I might just sign up for a subscription.
