Posted by on February 7, 2020 in Technology with 0 Comments

Online Flight Radar Tracker

The airport personnel are usually helpful, but sometimes you just don’t wish to talk to anyone or need to gather the information quickly, without going anywhere. That’s when the online data sources like Flight Radar 24 are useful. The flight trackers usually store a large amount of data about each air-going vessel and its flights, while some particulars might be accessed through the premium account only.

The online trackers usually grant for free the following data:

  • Tail number, individual for each plane.
  • Designated number of the flight currently performed.
  • Name of the operating airline.
  • Destination and departure points (airports, particular terminals and gates specified).
  • Other aircraft performing the same flight.
  • The route of the air bound vessel and its current position on the global map.
  • Flight timing: scheduled and actual.
  • Specific parameters like altitude, plane’s speed, covered distance.

Opting for a prepaid account, you can make use of the following information:

  • Aeronautical type of chart.
  • Weather layers information overlayed on the map including lighting information.
  • Full data on the plane.
  • Full historical and statistic data.
  • View of the aircraft and selected airport, of the airline fleet.
  • Alert information.

Airline Website

Though the modern online flight radar services usually are mobile-friendly and don’t require high-speed Internet traffic, they might be unavailable at some conditions (mostly, due to the constant map update). In such circumstances, the website of the airline operating the flight is a good source to look into.

In order to find out about the particular flight, you’ll need to insert its number into the panel / search bar on the website. Otherwise, you can type in the departure and / or destination city / airport and choose the particular flight from the list offered.

On majority of airline websites, you will find:

  • Current state of the flight.
  • Timing of the flight (both scheduled and actual).
  • Place of departure and landing, number of gate.
  • Links to the corresponding airport websites / data on the visited airports.

Online Flight Data Panels  

The web-bound information panels on the aircraft movement don’t usually show the live aeronautic coverage but can supply the data on the particular flight quickly enough. They also feature a simple interface letting perform a search by several factors:

  • Flight number (mentioned on your ticket, if you have one).
  • The airline handling the flight.
  • The departure airport.
  • The landing airport.
  • Date of performed or scheduled flight.

Visiting the Online Panel, you can get the relevant information on the particular flight:

  • Present status and timing (actual and estimated) of the flight.
  • Take-off and landing points.
  • Distance to go.
  • Other boards on the same route.
  • General plane parameters (age, tail number, type, seating chart).
  • Information on the airline (brief history and statistics, operated flights and fleet).
  • Data on the airport: location, main figures (passenger turnover, flights operated) and connections.
