Plane Finder AR blends the data from our Plane Finder virtual radar apps with the Augmented Reality capabilities of the iPhone to show you what is flying overhead.
The app is fun to use and is very dynamic. It will work in all areas for which we have coverage.

Please check our web map at http://www.planefinder.net or ask a question via my.pinkfroot.com to make sure we cover your area.
We are adding feeds all of the time so it’s always worth checking back in regularly.

Plane Finder AR works by picking up ADS-B plane feeds used by all commercial planes to transmit their name, position, destination and lots more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Plane Finder AR and Plane Finder?
Plane Finder AR is our augmented reality app that shares the data available in Plane Finder- our original iPhone App. Plane Finder (and Plane Finder HD) provide a near real time virtual radar view of flight from across the world and include a great deal more detail that Plane Finder AR. All Plane Finder apps share common ADS-B data.

Why can’t I see all planes?
Aircraft must be carrying ADS-B equipment and we must have a feed in the area. (In the US airlines have been slow to adopt the technology but usage is continuing to rise).

What if my area isn’t covered?
We are always on the lookout for more data feeds. Check back regularly to see if we have added your area.

If I have an SBS, RadarBox, Plane Gadget or Aurora ADS-B receiver can I share my data for use with Plane Finder AR?
Yes. Please contact support@pinkfroot.com and we can assist.

Can I use Plane Finder AR for navigational purposes?
Definitely not. Plane Finder must not be used for navigational purposes under any circumstances
