Plane Finder - Flight Tracker App Description

Plane Finder tracks planes in real time around the world. Watch live moving planes on a worldwide map or use the camera AR view to ID planes above you. You can even play back past flights – all the way back to 2011. The Plane Finder app launched in 2009 and was the first live flight tracking app - today there are millions of happy users all over the world. Plane Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 12,000+ planes simultaneously. Search by flight number, place name, airport, airline and aircraft or browse the map. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Simply tap a plane to see detailed flight and aircraft information including photographs or tap an airport to see live arrivals and departures boards. Use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify planes overhead using your device camera. 23 different plane markers are included and airline logos are displayed next to planes for easy identification. Custom alerts are unlimited and free to use, so you can take a break from watching the air traffic and let the app notify you when a plane is in the air or nearby. Powerful and unlimited custom filters are also free to use. You can create, save and name as many filters as you need for quick access to the planes you are interested in. Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or airports of interest. Handoff is supported too! If you prefer a list view of planes to the map view, use the sortable List View. You can also rearrange the table columns for ease of use. Watch your previous flights - all the way back to April 2011! Use playback to replay holiday flights, diversions, major incidents etc. You can also easily see the effects of storms, ATC strikes, volcanic ash clouds and more. Or just relax and use playback to view the flow of air traffic through the day. FAA US and NATS UK aviation charts are available as an in app purchase as a visual alternative to standard maps. Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more. We have millions of happy users and Plane Finder is regularly updated with innovative new features. Our support team always listen to and reply to feedback. At a glance our worldwide coverage includes - • Europe 95% - realtime • North America – 100% via slightly US delayed data – Nationwide realtime ADS-B network in place and capturing 95% of ADS-B equipped aircraft • Rest of World – Excellent coverage in Australia, New Zealand, Central America, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, Dubai, India, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Maldives, Mauritius, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more countries Important Note: Plane Finder works by picking up real time ADS-B and MLAT signals used by aircraft to transmit positional data to land based receivers. This technology is faster than traditional radar and is used for air traffic control and navigation. ADS-B is not used by all airlines or aircraft, however this is changing and the number of aircraft tracked by ADS-B is increasing all of the time. Traditional radar type data in real time is also included for North America.

  • Amazing App!

    By CaliforniaDreams2018
    This is an amazing app! We have a lot of air traffic and it’s so interesting to see where everyone is headed etc This App has never crashed once in the 6 months I’ve used it. The camera feature is amazing! I never buy APPs but made an exception for this one. So glad I did! Download this app you will be glad you did!
  • Thrilled @ accuracy

    By JennaCarda
    I hear the plane overhead and hit my app and see it. I live in rural area and this is my hobby. :) 😂
  • Finding a flight

    By Evaldobamaral
    It seems that this APP does not recognize glint numbers of the American Airlines

  • No data / wrong data

    By 240Don
    Information previously provided in Plane Finder has deteriorated significantly. Destination / departure info is frequently missing and sometimes non-sensical. Example: a plane departing Cleveland bound for Indianapolis should not be airborne over Middlebury, Vermont. A plane reported at 8,000 feet with an airspeed of zero? Currently more than 80% of the data for all single engine aircraft (as reported by the icon) will load no data at all. I used to refer to Plane Finder frequently, but rarely use it now. FlightAware tracks fewer aircraft but has more flight data that usually makes sense. What happened to Plane Finder to make it so unreliable / not believable?
  • Spotty coverage

    By Weff590
    The coverage is still quite weak compared to the leading flight tracker. If you like tracking business jets this app is good as it shows registrations.
  • So far the app is good.

    By "C-T"
    Haven’t had a chance to use it much, but so far so good!
