Plane Finder has been featured by Gizmodo, CNN, GMA, BBC, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, CNET, Wired, GQ Magazine and many more. HOW DOES PLANE FINDER WORK? 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.

  • Fixed

    By Gearloose2013
    One of the latest releases has fixed the augmented reality/camera mode so I can aim and identify aircraft again!
  • Great app, enjoy knowing what’s over my house

    By Tanuki***
    I enjoy finding out where planes came from and where they are going when I see them flying over.
  • Doesn’t show my flight.

    By Trebills
    Says my flight can’t be found or is out of range. Pretty weak for a paid app. There are multiple free apps that can track it fine
  • Useage

    By 1542Z
    Difficult to pick out individual flights. Need to use filters which I have not found. Still have to figure the app out. Can’t make it work!
  • Ethiopian Airways

    Update a step back not forward
  • Forgot something small on the map

    By planepsotter098
    There was a feature where you can see where you are facing on the map with the little arrow. But this feature isn’t here anymore so I don’t know exactly which direction a plane is coming from. Can you bring this feature back? Btw this app is just amazing.
  • Buena app

    Siempre encuentro los vuelos de mi esposa
  • No longer accesses Location Services

    By Rosea1
    Great app which I’ve been using for years, but on my iPad Air2 it no longer accesses Location Services so doesn’t default to my current location. I’ve turned it off and on, etc. but can’t get that feature working. Otherwise, the new version is excellent.
  • Bad upgrade

    By ercdy
    Hate the small, yellow planes. Very hard to look at anything.
  • Information Missing

    By Alex & Gracie
    I have enjoyed your app but the flight origination and destination is missing now. To me this is important information and it would be good to add this information back. Thanks
