Top ranking since 2009, Plane Finder is a trusted source of global flight tracking information to both the enthusiast and professional aviation community. We use our own worldwide bespoke flight tracking network that we are constantly growing and evolving to provide the best possible flight tracking experience. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our tracking data and apply rigorous data quality checks throughout our systems.

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.
