In the latest updates to our iOS and Android app, we’ve made some upgrades to individual flight playback. We’ve added additional information about the aircraft and flight performance and made it easier to see only the data you want to see. You can access individual flight playback by searching for a flight number or aircraft registration and tapping Playback on any flight listing.

New format, new information

When you first open playback you’ll see the flight path and the playback time line.

Swipe up on the center bar in the time line once to open up the updated aircraft and flight information panel. This panel now includes the ICAO equipment code and registration as well as the full aircraft type for the flight. Calibrated altitude, ground speed, vertical speed, and track are also available.
