Aircraft Tracking

How to Use Aircraft Tracking

  • Please wait to allow for the map to re-generate with aircraft postions with each screen movement.
  • Zoom into the area of interest
  • Click on the aircraft for details and heading.
  • When you click on a particular aircraft, the path that this particular aircraft has taken is printed on the map.
  • The color of the trail behind the aircraft differs depending on the altitude that the aircraft had at that position.
  • The numbers are in meters. If the aircraft is below 100 meters in altitude, the trail will be white. 
  • The route is not transmitted from the aircraft, the route is taken from a database based on the callsign (flight number).

About Aircraft Tracking

Aircraft positions are generally live but may be updated intermittently, old or incomplete and may not represent the current real-time location. Data on aircraft is provided for informational reasons only and is not related by any means to the safety of navigation or commercial purposes and is provided for interest only.

Data for aircraft locations is relayed using the ADS-B Transponders (approximately 60% of aircraft carry these transponders) and hosted by the, Sweden. Data is shared as part of an open, community-based project, however data streaming of aircraft locations is dependant on transmitter location and availability, coverage is approximately 90% of Europe, with partial coverage in USA, Australia and Middle East. Some areas are not supported.
