A General Overview

The all-new Radarbox App brings flight tracking to the palm of your hand. With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can quickly track flights anywhere, anytime.

Whether you’re a pilot who’s checking to see how late your next flight is or you’re an aviation enthusiast who just loves plane watching, the Radarbox app is all you'll need!


The all new Radarbox App (iOS & Android)


The app is packed with most of the features that are available on our website and in the coming months, we plan on adding many more features to enhance your experience. Features like Augmented Reality, Alerts, and the My Station page are currently being developed and will be made available via an app update soon. We’ve also decided to keep the layout, buttons and color scheme just like the website, so that you get the same familiar look and feel when you use the app.  

This beginner’s guide will help you get acquainted with the app and its features quickly and thoroughly.


Getting Started

Sign in / Sign up

After downloading and installing the app the first thing you’ll see is the live map (with ads). If you already have a spotter, pilot or business account with Radarbox, you can sign in to your account by choosing the MENU option (3 vertical dots) on the top right side of your screen (next to the magnifying glass) and tap on SIGN IN. Next, enter the same email address that you used to sign up for a Radarbox account. Then enter the password and tap sign in.

If you have any issues while signing in or if you signed up for an account previously and don’t remember your sign in details, please send us an email ([email protected]) or choose the forgot password option if you’ve just forgotten your password.


The Sign In / Sign Up Process


If you don’t have a paid subscription account (spotter, pilot, business) with Radarbox, you can still use the app, but with limited features and ads. We recommend using the app with a subscription for the best user experience.
