An Essential App For Air Travellers and Plane Spotters
on 25 April 2013
This app facilitates the tracking of aircraft in several ways in real time. Flight numbers, callsigns, aircraft registration numbers or specific airports can be entered and the location of appropriate aircraft identified and tracked.
However one of the most useful and fascinating attributes of the app is that a geographical location can be selected and aircraft movements in the vicinity are shown on the map. By pinpointing a specific aircraft it is then possible to establish the airline, flight number, aircraft type, registration number, height, airspeed, where its journey originated, as well as tracking its journey en route to its destination airport. A photograph showing what the aircraft looks like is also accessible from a "more information" menu, which is a useful aid to identification.
Personally I would regard this app as an absolute "must" not only for air travellers, but also for dedicated plane spotters and in fact anyone with an interest in aircraft movements in their own locality.
