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.

  • A lot of fun, but...

    Sometimes I question the accuracy. When a plane goes over, I can be pretty sure that it is the plane I was tracking but I have my doubts when it is headed in exactly the opposite direction of the stated route.
  • Would be 5 if they got rid of the irritating ad when you launch it

    This is the only app I have ever paid money for I don’t regret buying it. It works almost all of the time and is fun and now I know the flight paths to the major airports that go over my house
  • Wife’s Flights

    My wife flies from our home in Beaumont, Texas to Tampa, Florida (vla DFW) twice in a year. I find interesting and reassuring to be able to track her flights in real time. I find the best tracker with plane details is ”Plane Finder”. Even as I'm writing this, I’m tracing her flight over the Gulf of Mexico. ”Plane Finder” has the best tracking maps and details of any other tracker I’ve found.

    Waste of money. I regularly have family that flies and got this app to see the progress of flights etc and it has only ever been correct once. I just checked a flight route and it showed me the other end of the country not even near the flight route.
  • 95% of ADS-B?

    I purchased this app to monitor the local flights near my airport. Mostly flights without a flight plan filed. Unfortunately this app only seems to track flights with a filed flight plan, so looks like the money was wasted.
  • Great app, incredible details

  • So hard to find a plane

    I’ve never liked this app. It should be as simple as entering an airline, flight number, departure or arrival and search. Rarely works. Most times just shows 0 aircraft.
  • Very good

  • Quick on X, international data useful

    Only used a few times but it is quick on an iPhone X and shows international flights. With an idea of where a flight should be, you can actually find it in the map with the carrier flag and an airplane icon that approximates the real thing (size and number of engines).
  • Many flights not trackable

    I am a frequent flyer and every time I try to track my flight it says not currently tracked or out of range. Switched over to flight radar 24 and it works every time.
