Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar24 has a rapidly growing network of 20,000 ground stations to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions, with the help of multilateration, we’re able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders. Coverage is subject to change at any time.

We love getting feedback on FR24. Since we’re unable to respond directly to reviews, contact us directly and we’ll be happy to assist if you’re having any issues.

Pilot Must Have

This app has gotten better with every release. If you are a pilot or a super nerd aviation enthusiast this is the app for you. If you also get the app for monitoring aviation radio communications it becomes even more fun. Watch the plane fly it’s route and monitor approach or departure frequencies and try to pick out the plane your following. I have a private pilot license and this have a backup VHF radio..sometimes I will monitor my local airport, watch planes coming over my house and listen to radio communications until they land. It’s super fun for us aviation nerds. It also helps get familiar with local approaches for IFR flying by allowing you to watch the aircrafts flight track. This can be super helpful when flying for real. Great job on the app guys!! Work on importing a higher resolution cockpit view and showing more ground details. GREAT APP!! fun app. When you fly commercially and have internet access on the flight, fairly standard these days, it’s cool to hear you own pilot work his way through heaven traffic. Now the radio monitoring app may not have all the handoff radio frequencies, but you know they will eventually be handed off to tower..:-) happy flying to all!!

8.10.2 Update has glitches

Love this app but the recent update 8.10.2 has some glitches, the biggest is it lags on the location of the aircraft. For example it will show the aircraft several miles away from where it actually is then it will catch up to the correct location but then go back to lagging/delaying the location. The second major issue is the location jumps, this is not the same as the issue I just mentioned. For example if a helicopter is circling in a particular an area, it will show the helicopter’s line of history in one area as a bunch of circles but then a second later it will have the helicopter in a completely different town then a few seconds later it will completely shift back across the screen to the original location where the circular line of history is - which is technically the correct location. The third issue is it will show an aircraft traveling then all of the sudden the aircraft will completely disappear as though it was never in flight (in the air). For certain reasons in my area I know when an aircraft has or has not landed and when it is still actually in flight, so it didn’t disappear due to it landing, it disappeared due to an issue with the app.

Keep going

Heads up I’m an airplane enthusiast. I love this app so dam much and I use it just about every weekend. I go to my nearest plane spotting location and use this app to see the planes on final approach and the ones on that taxiway too. This app is basically what makes plane spotting enjoyable. I do have some complaints though. For some reason there is this glitch where when a plane lands on this app, occasionally it will keep going beyond the runway even though the plane is safe in real life. It’s not that big of a deal, but I do find it kinda annoying when you are trying to find realism in the app. I also think that the prices for the memberships are reasonable, but it would be really awesome if it were a bit lower. But overall this is a great app and I totally recommend it to just about anyone who has somewhat of an interest in planes. I use it to watch my relatives fly out over the radar and like to think about what they are doing on the flight. I would love to see at least one more perk added to the basic membership just to make things better. But yes I love just about everything about this app.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review and feed back, very much appreciated. Regarding the Aircraft on the runway you mentioned: An aircraft’s ADS-B transponder is transmitting the position from the on board flight computer, which in most modern aircraft comes from GPS data and is very accurate. On some older aircraft (for example some older A300, B737, B757, B767 and RJ100) the position is calibrated on ground before take off and after that the current position is calculated based on speed and direction of the aircraft. When flying for some time, in wind or in circles, the calculation becomes increasingly worse, which at landing can give position calculations that are up to 10 km incorrect.
