Description

Uncover the mysteries of live air traffic in one beautiful and easy to use app. Is it a bird? Is it a plane?! If it’s the latter, Plane Finder can tell you exactly which plane it is.

Plane Finder is incredibly easy to use and utterly fascinating. It enables you to see live air traffic patterns with real-time tracking of almost any plane you’re interested in, and in addition to the aircraft’s location you can see its current altitude, its speed and where it’s heading.

Get live information on flights - super handy when travelling.

You can even be alerted when a particular flight is heading your way, which is useful if you’re trying to catch sight of rare birds such as the Airbus A380.

There’s a superb augmented-reality option that enables you to point your camera at the sky and see details of the aircraft that’s overhead, and with full support for iOS’s Dark Mode it’s just as handy for night flights as it is for daytime ones.

It’s all great fun, but it’s also very practical: in addition to flight tracking there’s extensive airport information, which supplements live arrival and departures with live weather reports for hundreds of airports.

Enjoy Plane Finder’s leading edge design as featured in Apple’s “The Power of Dark Mode” and “See it in Dark Mode” Collections 2019.

Apple’s App of The Day – Jan 2020 and Top ranking since 2009 with thousands of 5 star user reviews. Plane Finder is also featured in Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine to name a few.

Help and Support

How does Plane Finder work?
Plane Finder receives real time ADS-B and MLAT signals sent by aircraft to transmit their 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.

Fun app

I couldn’t figure out how to contact the developer at first. Then found it has to be done through the app, not their website.

The developer responded quickly to my question about getting rid of the ads on a second device, so it’s all good. I was happy to see the option of getting rid of 3rd-party ads without having to purchase the full version.

It’s a fun app. We always watch the planes in the sky and wondered where they were going. Now we can find out.

Free version works. Easy to use. Limited information so you need to buy the better version if your interest is professional. New version is more convenient and easier to use and provides basic information.

GREAT APP IF YOU LIKE/LOVE AVIATION AND/OR ARE NOSY

Where I live in Tennessee, Atlanta is 120 (+/-) miles to my southeast, Nashville is 170 (+\-) miles to my west, and there are loads of planes that fly over.
I so throughly enjoy seeing several aircraft in the skies above so I can use this app to determine what type of plane, where it began its journey to its destination, then vicariously experience what the passengers are experiencing.
