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.

  • 5 stars all the way

    I use this purley for enjoyment and a way to kill time. Sometime I wonder what aircraft are above me and this is a great way to just relax and dream. I only wish it showed military as well but I understand why not.

  • This app is a sad joke.

    By BozToros
    I don’t know what happened but the search is completely worthless. I can see JetBlue but can’t search for JetBlue. I can’t search for any flight now. This is a complete joke. Even plane finder 3D’s search is useless. What a waste of money.

  • Excellent app

    By BarbND
    If you love flying like I do, then you might enjoy this app. Follow your favorite flight from conception to final approach. It might be time-consuming, but fun following different flights. Highly recommend this app. Excellent customer service. I had purchased the upgraded version on my iPhone because I like this app so much, but it wouldn’t download on my iPad. After several email exchanges with Mark, I was able to get the upgrade on my iPad. I want to thank him for his quick response.
  • Love it

    Might be silly, but I love knowing what’s going over my head. Plane Finder is the best. Not only can I tell where it’s from and where it’s going, I also can tell what make and model the plane is. Did you know Fed Ex is really busy getting our order delivered after 10PM?
