Plane Finder

Plane Finder


Plane Finder shows live moving planes on a worldwide map and has been beautifully re-engineered. The map view is front and center giving an uninterrupted view of air traffic and features are quick to access.

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.

23 different plane markers are included and airline logos are displayed next to planes for easy identification.

Simply tap a plane to see detailed flight and aircraft information including photographs or tap an airport to see live arrivals and departures boards.

You can even use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify planes overhead using your device camera.

Custom alerts are unlimited and unlocked via an In App Purchase, 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.

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.

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 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 near real time is also included for North America; this is subject to a short time delay.

We have been hard at work on an all new version.

- Now you can unlock custom alerts to create alerts based, on aircraft registration, squawk, flight number and more!
- Lots of nasty bugs have been squished.

User reviews of Plane Finder
This app is amazing, Europe coverage is great and US is awesome too!

3*** (out of 5****) Less coverage in Central Europe, only. For that purposes I'm using "flightradar24 pro".

Great app, I like the way it shows lots of info on the flight including the carrier and picture of the aircraft.

Great app Sometimes there seems to be moments with no aircraft while the "competing app” shows plenty... And the other way around also holds true. GUI could be improved still. Great job!
