Frequently Asked Questions What is the difference between Plane Finder AR and Plane Finder?  Plane Finder AR is our augmented reality app that shares the data available in Plane Finder- our original iPhone App. Plane Finder provides a near real time virtual radar view of flight from across the world and include a great deal more detail that Plane Finder AR. All Plane Finder apps share common ADS-B data.  Why can't I see all planes? Aircraft must be carrying ADS-B equipment and we must have a feed in the area. (In the US airlines have been slow to adopt the technology but usage is continuing to rise). What if my area isn’t covered?  We are always on the lookout for more data feeds. Check back regularly to see if we have added your area. You could even help us by running a free receiver! If I have an ADS-B receiver can I share my data for use with Plane Finder AR? Yes. Please contact and we will assist. Can I use Plane Finder AR for navigational purposes?  Definitely not. Plane Finder must not be used for navigational purposes under any circumstances **Whilst we do have the best network please double check coverage using our free app Plane Finder Lite to make sure that we have coverage for your area** Disclaimer: The use of the information presented using Plane Finder is strictly limited to your pursuing enthusiast activities (i.e. for entertainment purposes), which specifically exclude any activities that might endanger yourself or the lives of others.

  • Awesome, but...

    By Marianne in Miami
    The older version showed the make and model of the aircrafts, which was the reason I got it. Please put it back! :)
  • What a great App!!

    By jinglealltheway
    I really enjoy this great App! Keep the best App coming!! I love using it at a small airstrip near Cedar, MI! We get small planes, dual engine planes, and large and small Lear Jets! Tracking them back to Chicago Executive airports is GREAT! 40 minutes from up here! Wow!

  • Fun app

    By whitemtnman
    It always “WOWS” my friends!
  • Dislike the small circle

    By vejkryds
    Disappointed with the very small circle flight finder screen. I can’t get mine to orient to my aim/ north, east etc. Wish still gave plane info. I lot less entertaining now.
  • Doesn’t Track

    By Egghopper 2.0
    Does not follow a planes motion. I must keep closing and opening the app in order to track a plane’s progress. I wish I could expand the information bubble so that I could read it.
  • It stinks

    By Cashcamg
    Never calibrates to proper direction and doesn’t tell what type of aircraft I’m seeing, just its brand name, etc. I want to know if it’s a B777 or an A380, etc. Weak sauce and a silly use of AR.
  • Not sure

    By dkkadoyle
    Does not seem to be working, help is no help
  • Not functional any longer

    By aarruugghh
    It use to work well, but now it doesn’t do much of anything but indicate there are some planes out there.
