Plane Finder HD

By pinkfroot limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Plane Finder HD shows live moving planes on a worldwide map and has been beautifully re-engineered for iOS7. 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 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.

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.

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

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.

Under no circumstances will the developer of this application be held responsible for incidents resulting from the use of the data or its interpretation or its use contrary to this agreement.

Customer Reviews

Works we'll most of the time

I have used this app for a few years now. I occasionally pick up incoming guests from overseas and domestically and as I live only 15 minutes from the airport it's great to monitor the flight to know when to leave. Most of the time it works but there are times when it does not make sense. I can live with that.

Great App, has features completion doesn't

I still use other ADS-B apps with different coverage patterns around certain areas, but this is the better one by far. Always adding and improving features.

Does what I need it to do

Accuracy not bad in Sydney some times planes do not show up. Also many time when aircraft directly over head show destination as Mexico even though they are on Final approach to Sydney. But it does what I need it to do.
