Flightradar24 is an application that allows you to find out what happens to a particular aircraft. It is fully functional only in the paid versions compatible with Android, iPhone, iPad and even Windows Phone platforms. The free version is quite limited in terms of search capabilities.
Flightradar24 allows you to get all the information about a particular aircraft you wish to take or that is carrying a family member. The application uses a very simple approach: it receives flight data directly from the aircraft. This is possible thanks to the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast technology or the ADS-B cooperative surveillance system, which is used by the majority of modern aircraft. ADS-B is a relatively complex and sophisticated system that allows pilots to obtain the latest weather and terrain updates or other information. Aircraft equipped with ADS-B derive their position information from a GPS network and transmit their position information along with a host of other data to ATC or any ADS-B receiver on the ground.
With flightradar24, you can "zoom in" to virtually any airport and see all aircraft on approach, in flight, departing, etc. You can also "click" on specific flights and get information about them, where they are heading, what type of aircraft is flying, flight time, etc. When searching by flight number, the user can see the position of the aircraft in real time and for flights already completed (detailed statistics), including flight parameters at any point along the route.
