Question: Who should subscribe to Terrafly.com subscription service?

Answer: Terrafly subscription service is for every individual user or organization who wants to have a longer flight time than usual. We had to limit the flight time due to increased load on our servers. The subscription service is our way to ensure that the users that really need to take the full advantage of Terrafly can do so without any service outages. A substantially more liberal quota is in effect from 6pm ET to 8am ET.
