Live tracking allows fans to follow every participant’s move on the official Air Tour website’s map. The pilots’ position is updated every 5 minutes on the Google map thanks to GPS coordinates being sent via GSM network. Spectators are able to see if pilots are flying, sleeping or hiking. They can also have a look at the pilots’ live ranking.
Live tracking is also used for rescue procedures in case of accident: Injured or rescuing pilots can start efficient rescue action thanks to the GPS tracking system.
