Automatic AvGeek Alerts

Fri Sep 29, 2017 2:54 am

Good evening; long time lurker, first time poster.

I've developed a site that automatically sends AvGeek flight alerts. Doesn't require any configuration other than your airport/payment/contact info.

In short, it looks at the arrival departure boards and analyzes each flight. If it's an unusual type+airline for that location, a special livery, or noteworthy for any other AvGeek reason, it'll send you an alert. Works pretty well (will pickup diverts that other services have trouble sending push alerts for), have been beta testing for several months, and it's now available for anyone to signup to track flights at DFW, DTW, MSP, PHX, or SEA. Hope to expand to other markets soon.

The site also has arrival/departure boards for said airports with a bunch of filters for heavies, AvGeek, and international carriers... makes spotting easier when you don't have to scroll through dozens and dozens of CRJ's, 320's, and 737's (at least it does here at MSP).

Anyways, it's available at - would love any and all feedback. I've got a thick leathery hide, so don't hold back.
