Plane Finder is a great app that provides real time information on flights across the globe. It’s easy to use and is fully integrated into Google Maps. It’s easy to switch between map views and details and even pulls in photos of most planes. Plane Finder works by picking up ADS-B plane feeds used by commercial and private planes to transmit their name, position, callsign, status and lots more. The ADS-B data comes to us either from our own receivers or from people with receivers who share their data with us over the internet. If you are a virtual radar hobbyist we’ll be delighted to receive your data for use within the app.
