Flight Tracker Pro is Flightwise.com's iPhone utility for tracking Commercial or General Aviation flights anywhere within United States airspace (Only flights in US and Canadian airspace, including Alaska, Hawaii, parts of the Caribbean, and other US territories are supported at this time). This application is not geared towards the typical flying traveller, and does not provide gate information, seating coordination, or any other related services. It is strictly for tracking an aircraft's location and expected arrival time. Use of this application is geared towards professional-grade aviation-industry flight tracking, or for aircraft tracking enthusiasts. Users can enter an aircraft tail number or an FAA flight ID, and a tracking map of the aircraft and its current position appears. From the airline search page, you can choose from hundreds of airlines and type in the flight number to track an aircraft. You can search by other parameters, such as airport & aircraft type, and you can combine search parameters if you have something specific in mind. Users can select individual flights to track from a listing of search results. View past flight history, N-Number registration details, photo images of aircraft, and other specifics. The map is scrollable with the finger, and pinch to zoom functionality is also provided. Users can also display a list of flights located within a specified radius of their current location, and keep a history list of recently-tracked flights for quick access. Also included in this version, users can take photos of flights or aircraft and upload them to the main Flightwise website, sharing them with the rest of the world. Great for spotters and enthusiasts. For industrial-strength flight tracking from your desktop, point your web browser to http://flightwise.com
