If you want to install and use the Flightradar24 | Flight Tracker app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Flightradar24 | Flight Tracker in the search bar and press Search. Click on Flightradar24 | Flight Tracker application icon. A window of Flightradar24 | Flight Tracker on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

HOW IT WORKS Most aircraft today are equipped with ADS-B transponders that transmit positional data. Flightradar24 has a rapidly growing network of 20,000 ground stations to receive this data that then shows up as aircraft moving on a map in the app. In an expanding number of regions, with the help of multilateration, we’re able to calculate the positions of aircraft that don’t have ADS-B transponders. Coverage is subject to change at any time. CONNECT WITH FLIGHTRADAR24 We love getting feedback on FR24.

  • Information is time

    I use this app (with Gold subscription) to track inbound aircraft (and their chain of flights). This way I know if A) the aircraft is arriving the night before and so I have almost nothing to worry about or B) if the inbound aircraft for my flight hasn’t been delayed somewhere during the day before the airline bothers to notify me. The inflight arrival estimates are great and generally accurate. So knowing all this information helps me save time and most importantly reduces stress. I grant that sometimes there may be a backup aircraft available if the inbound aircraft is late but that is the exception to the rule. I am an #AvGeek so knowing all about the aircraft I’m flying on (and that being always accurate so far) is just thrilling (only #AvGeeks get thrilled about flying commercially....... it is a good way to live ;-) Only suggestion? Please synchronize my iPad filters with my iPhone filters :-)
  • Rip off!

    Hey developer, how about if you let people that paid you use the new app ads free and with the same basic functions we had in the paid app we purchased? Even if all the other new features do not work. That is OK. Give me what I paid for and I’ll be happy. I don’t need the new features, whatever those are. - I purchased the original Flight Radar. Me and others made it possible through our purchase of the app to get the app to where it is today. Now greed has taken over the developer and they want a month or yearly subscription. Hey refund the money you took for the original app and we’ll call it even. How about that? To add insult to injury, they are offering a “free” three month subscription to their service. Really? No sweetie, it is not “free,”it cost us what we paid for the app. I do have to give the greedy developer credit for at least giving us old timers at least three months of “free” service. Because unlike other developers that have become greedy, at least they gave us three months rather than just giving us the finger.
  • Goodbye Flight Aware Hello Flightradar24!

    By Kalei75
    I’m an aviation geek and loved Flight Aware but for the longest time, I always wished I could know the tail numbers and registration information of an aircraft I was viewing from my lanai. I would often go online, look up all of the registration numbers of a particular aircraft in a fleet and try to find which one I was looking at. I remarked to a friend of mine how I would look up these aircraft and that’s when he introduced me to this app. Now I can easily point my iPad or iPhone at an approaching or departing aircraft and find that information. I also love the feature of being able to see recent and past photos of that very same aircraft! Just a remarkable, easy to use app! I’d HIGHLY recommend this app to ANYONE that’s an aviation geek like me or for someone a lot more advanced such as pilots, ground crew and flight crew.
  • Option to hide sidebar; hold focus

    By LAX20531
    I love everything about this app. It definitely can consume a lot of time depending on your interests. I paid for the Gold option and feel the app differentiates itself more than its closest competitor. Enhancement request: The ability to hold focus on a selected and temporarily slide or suppress the sidebar. I love the sidebar but it does consume a lot of space so having a toggle for this would be helpful. Finally I’d remiss if neglected to see the negative reviews from those who previously purchased the app. It is not reasonable to expect an app purchase is tantamount to a lifetime license including all upgrades. There are real costs associated with development and operating costs for data, systems. and support. That’s capitalism at work. I’d much rather pay for the app than see it go away. The devs set their pricing based on its value and the competing marketplace.

    One of my favorite apps. Truly accurate and enjoyable. I’m able to identify aircraft flying nearby and far away. Even have the ability to see what it’s like from the planes view and altitude in the sky. Awesome Software.
  • Great app but a bait and switch

    By Kantishna
    I paid for this app and now I’m back to square one. There is no way I’m paying for a subscription on top of paying for the app 🤬😡🤬 I’ve had this app for a very long time and I really like it. But I don’t recall ads at all on the older version. I’d this something new or are they jut more intrusive now? I did pay for the add on to see the different type of aircraft, like helicopters. But now when I go to the restore previous purchase, no record can be found. I do see helicopters on the screen but don’t know if it’s what I paid for or if it is now a standard feature.
  • Awesome app

    By abq72
    This app is fantastic! Real time flight info, the ability to see the aircraft in air and watch its progress, makes this app the place to check flight status for any airline or even aircraft.
  • Subscriptions value diminished in current form.

    Should offer a discount to go from silver to gold without having to pay the full gold price if you already paid the silver prices....
  • Must have app

    By Macfarland80
    I just switch to the new version. Although everything is better, I find the pics more inaccurate than the old version. I fly Mexico’s Volaris a lot and many of the pics are not correct. Pictures of an A321neo and the description says A320neo. Other than that, very good app. A must have
  • Good App but has issues

    I like the app but the planes sometimes suddenly move unnaturally from where they are into their correct positions like bad actors being late for a show. Same thing on the web version. Doesn’t matter what internet connection I am on (even gigabit) What causes this ?

    The only way to eliminate ads is to purchase a monthly subscription.
