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.
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.

Good if you like to know whats flying over your house
I enjoy watching planes at the airport and we get a lot flying over us nearly every day and always wondered where they were going, this app now tells me, you can see the planes moving on the map as they're tracked, also gives height and speed, route and both flight time and distance between departure and arrival airport
Love this app
From a grumpy old Pensioner.
I love your compositions of all that is the best in Jazz. I have lost count of the times I have burned dinner as your spread of music is so magical and I become so absorbed that time passes me by, my dear Lady unfortunately does not share my love or taste in all that is so captivating, however I care not and will carry on listening until my departure above.
Best wishes to you all,
Terry Bird, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England.
Really useful app
No matter the flight I have found that utilising this app has allowed me to follow it from takeoff till landings take easy to understand and has a wealth of background information.
