The perfect app for someone who doesn’t obsess over their flight and only wants to check it one or two times before they depart, but not for obsessives.
This app allows you to track the real-time flight status and see the live map flight track of any commercial flight worldwide and general aviation (private, charter, etc) in the United States and Canada.
Track by aircraft registration, route, airline, flight number, city pair, or airport code. Tracking data includes complete flight details and full-screen maps with NEXRAD radar overlay.
Receive real-time push notification flight alerts, view airport delays, see nearby flights (in the sky overhead), and more!
Permission to access your Contacts is used only when you choose to create a flight alert to be sent to another person. We do not store or transmit your contacts list in any other way.
The app is pretty accurate with flight information and doesn't require that you use your flight number, which is a limitation on some of the other flight tracking apps. There is also a feature in the live tracker that lets you know approximate flight times into the future.
