Top ranking since 2009 and with no subscription fees to pay, Plane Finder is a trusted source of global flight tracking information to both the enthusiast and professional aviation community. We use our own worldwide bespoke flight tracking network that we are constantly growing and evolving to provide the best possible flight tracking experience. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our tracking data and apply rigorous data quality checks throughout our systems.

Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more.


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.

Sehr gut ....

Ich habe einige versucht und bin hier hängen geblieben. Sehr informativ keine Werbung und das alles auch noch als Bundle mit Schiffen gekauft. 👍 Das einzige was man noch evtl. ändern könnte, das wäre ein persönlicher Grund. Wenn ich ein Flugzeug ✈️ anklicke wird mir die zurück gelegte Route angezeigt, kann man das auch erweitern das man die weitere Flugroute auch sieht ???? Wäre eine schöne Verbesserung. Vielen Dank

Die App ist schnell und zeigt alle Infos an. Selbst Hubschrauber, Segelflugzeuge und Ballons.
Beeindruckend, wie intensiv der Flugverkehr weltweit in Echtzeit ist.
Bei dem G20 in Hamburg konnte man sogar die Polizeihubschrauber im Einsatz verfolgen.

App begeistert und macht neugierig

Diese App ist wirklich das Beste, was am Markt ist. Es ist immer hoch interessant festzustellen, wenn man bei schönem Wetter im Garten liegt und die Flugzeuge am Himmel verfolgen kann, wo sie hin fliegen und wo sie herkamen. Das gibt angesichts der Informationsfülle zu jedem einzelnen Flug immer lustige Diskussionen. So werde ich dann nach dem Namen des Piloten und andere Dinge gefragt, die natürlich nicht überliefert sind. Ich möchte diese App, die ich auch auf Hawaii testen konnte, nicht mehr missen.
