Air Traffic – Flight Tracker displays live planes on a map. Like a radar, with real-time position updates and many flight status details. All of the features are available for free, which is uncommon enough to be highlighted: no subscription nor option to unlock by payment.
When selecting a plane you will have all the details :
– airline and flight number,
– flight origin and destination airports,
– departure and arrival time,
– aircraft type, including photos,
– altitude, speed, and heading,
– 3D pilot view animation
The planes are displayed on the map with about ten different icons depending on the type of aircraft. Also includes helicopters.
You can find a plane for a given flight or with a given registration, using the very responsive search engine. Once selected you may add the flight to the list of favorites. This will enable you later to retrieve and swap from flight to flight in a very efficient way.
When opening settings, you can choose the type of maps and units.
One of the features we are the proudest of is the real-time 3D view of the ground. A bird-eye view as if you were in the plane: enjoy the landing!
The present app is designed to display commercial flights. Military aircraft is out of scope.
Do note that not all planes are available: from 90 to 95 % coverage.
You will appreciate the very responsiveness of this flight tracker app when panning and zooming around.
Permissions: we are concerned about your privacy. You will only be requested to grant location permission if you want to use the ‘around me’ feature. You may deny it. The clean app, no other tricky permission out there.
