Need A Good Flight Tracking Website

Tue Apr 04, 2006 5:15 am

Anybody have any suggestions? I have been to flytecomm and flightarrivals, but was hoping to find one that was better. The site will preferably have tracking of all major carriers and a map of the plane's flight path with real-time location. Thanks in advance.

my suggestion - Buy an Apple computer -- their flight tracker is NICE  cool

Try

http://icarus.red1aviation.com

For $14.95/month you can't do better and it seems they cater for the enthusiast - like list of aircraft based at airports etc.

From the stats on flightaware, red1 appears to track around 15% more flights for some reason.

Flightaware is hands down the best free tracker out there, and the guy that runs it keeps making improvements, so it is obvious there is a commitment to the users. Suggest something needs changed, and he'll make the change.

It isn't perfect, but its a really good product for free.

I agree, Meister. It is an awesome site, and I will look forward to spending a lot of time there!
