As most of you know, MetroAir is currently beta testing a new website for pilots. As the development for this comes to a close, we’d like to secure a few more beta testers. If you are interested, please send a message to
In addition, we’re going to be moving our hosting this coming weekend to prepare for the new website. While we have been happy with our current dedicated server from The Planet, the cost of operating it vs the benefit does not scale as well now. We expect the downtime to be fairly minimal and should not cause too many interruptions.
Please note that the web switch will start around 05:00GMT on Saturday (Midnight Eastern time). Please plan accordingly as the following services will be unavailable during the web site switch:
- MetroAir Virtual Website
- MetroAir Forums
- MetroAir Wiki
- MetroAir Blog
- MetroAir ACARS (Make sure you don’t start a flight if you don’t think it will be completed before the scheduled downtime commences)
During the downtime a temporary page will be displayed to indicate the transfer is in progress. As soon as the transfer is completed and the DNS entries have been completed, you will see the new website. Your mileage may vary depending on how quickly your ISP’s DNS servers are refreshed.
