FlightView Mobile - Website Review

FlightView_mobile Get airline flight info on your web enabled phone by visiting the FlightView Mobile site:

The user interface has been designed specifically to fit the smartphone screens.  A Flight Tracker Map shows the plane's location and current weather. The navigation bars and selection buttons are sized for fingertip tapping

The page offers an accurate display of up-to-the-minute information on the flight's status - whether it's in-air, scheduled, landed, delayed or cancelled.  The map gives you the ability to quickly see a flight's real-time location on a translucent radar weather map.  Showing the weather conditions on the map can give you a window onto how weather might impact a flight's arrival or departure time.

The masive database behind this webpage is provided a Boston company called FlightView.  They are call themselves a provider of the most accurate, real-time flight information solutions for the aviation and travel industries.  FlightView's video info displays can be seen at airport terminals and on many web sites
