Online Airplane Tracking! Track Airplane Flights on the Internet!

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Check this out: a new service, called Flight Aware, is offering online airplane tracking! Now you can track airplane flights on the Internet, in near real time! And it’s free!

The new Flight Aware service provides airplane tracking of both commercial and private flights, and not only determines where they are, and whether they left on time or are due to arrive on time, but it even provides a map and data which shows the airplane’s location, altitude and ground speed at any given time. You can actually watch the plane’s progress along its flight path as it heads towards its destination. Too cool!


While the information is delayed, it’s only delayed by six minutes, so that’s pretty well close enough to real time for such a service (have I mentioned that it’s free?)

The service is offered by Flight Aware, which was founded in March of 2005, by Daniel Baker, one of the principals at Texas ISP Superconnect.com, and himself a private pilot.

In addition to flight tracking (and also data analysis), Flight Aware offers public discussion forums, both general interest, and for pilots.

  1. Flightaware is great for identifying the CHEMTRAIL JETS, they do not show up on the program but yet there they are, spraying out there crap_Flightaware exposes theis criminal activity big time.

  2. Try searching for a flight number on google, eg “ua955”, then click any of the 3 links at the top there. That’s been there for over a year now I think, and I’ve been using the underlying travelocity tracker since about 1998.
