HOW IT WORKS
Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar24 has a rapidly growing network of 17,000 ground stations around the world 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 in North America is also supplemented by real-time radar data. Coverage is variable and subject to change at any time.

Information is time

Kubisuro

I use this app (with Gold subscription) to track inbound aircraft (and their chain of flights). This way I know if A) the aircraft is arriving the night before and so I have almost nothing to worry about or B) if the inbound aircraft for my flight hasn’t been delayed somewhere during the day before the airline bothers to notify me. The inflight arrival estimates are great and generally accurate. So knowing all this information helps me save time and most importantly reduces stress. I grant that sometimes there may be a backup aircraft available if the inbound aircraft is late but that is the exception to the rule.

I am an #AvGeek so knowing all about the aircraft I’m flying on (and that being always accurate so far) is just thrilling (only #AvGeeks get thrilled about flying commercially....... it is a good way to live ;-)

Only suggestion? Please synchronize my iPad filters with my iPhone filters :-)

Goodbye Flight Aware Hello Flightradar24!

Kalei75

I’m an aviation geek and loved Flight Aware but for the longest time, I always wished I could know the tail numbers and registration information of an aircraft I was viewing from my lanai. I would often go online, look up all of the registration numbers of a particular aircraft in a fleet and try to find which one I was looking at. I remarked to a friend of mine how I would look up these aircraft and that’s when he introduced me to this app. Now I can easily point my iPad or iPhone at an approaching or departing aircraft and find that information. I also love the feature of being able to see recent and past photos of that very same aircraft! Just a remarkable, easy to use app! I’d HIGHLY recommend this app to ANYONE that’s an aviation geek like me or for someone a lot more advanced such as pilots, ground crew and flight crew.

Option to hide sidebar; hold focus

LAX20531

I love everything about this app. It definitely can consume a lot of time depending on your interests. I paid for the Gold option and feel the app differentiates itself more than its closest competitor.

Enhancement request: The ability to hold focus on a selected and temporarily slide or suppress the sidebar. I love the sidebar but it does consume a lot of space so having a toggle for this would be helpful.

Finally I’d remiss if neglected to see the negative reviews from those who previously purchased the app. It is not reasonable to expect an app purchase is tantamount to a lifetime license including all upgrades. There are real costs associated with development and operating costs for data, systems. and support. That’s capitalism at work. I’d much rather pay for the app than see it go away. The devs set their pricing based on its value and the competing marketplace.

Developer Response
