There are numerous mobile applications that allow you to track, in real time, the status of a commercial flight, if it has already taken off, where exactly it is located, what route it will take, images of the airplane model, what time it will land. They are tremendously useful if a trip is going to be made or, for example, to check the flight of a friend who is visiting or of that family member who goes away.
If you do not want to lose sight of any aircraft, keep these applications handy that you can install for free on your mobile phone and keep track of any aircraft by simply entering the flight number, or the airport of origin and destination, as well as the date and time of it.
* FlighRadar24:- It is one of the most complete applications and is completely free. One of its most interesting functions is discovered as soon as you enter the application. Using the geolocation of the mobile, the app detects the user’s location and shows you all the planes that are flying over your area, in real time.
In addition, it is possible to know all kinds of information about each flight: origin, destination, takeoff time and landing time, forecast of possible delays, etc. By entering the flight number, you can also access a photo of the airplane model.
In the same way, when accessing the information of a flight that is on the way at that time, you can check in real time the altitude and the speed at which the skies are furrowing it.
