Are you flight-aware?

fa_logo_2c_with_tag1How often have you been in a plane, looked out the window and wondered what city you are flying over? Or, have you wanted to see where a loved-one is while they are en-route? One of my favorite websites is www.flightaware.com which allows you to not only track flights in real time, but also lets you go back in time and see what route you took on any flight in recent history.

flight-aware-choices2When you go to the Web site, look on the left hand side and you see three ways to search for flight information. You can track a specific commercial flight or see all of the scheduled arrivals or departures from a certain airport (like, for example, San Diego). Remember, our airport code is SAN.

I went ahead and tracked a flight I recently took from San Diego to Reno. Below you can could see the time I departed and arrived, aircraft type, speed and altitude. My favorite part is that you can get a good view of theryan route that was taken.

You can also see below the detailed route of another recent flight of mine, from Oakland to San Diego — I had a great view of Monterey from my Southwest 737-300 window seat!

A similar service, www.flightexplorer.com, was used to track Virgin America’s inaugural flight to San Diego right here on the Ambassablog back in February, 2008.

On the airport’s website, www.san.org, you can also get real-time flight information. But, if you’d like a little more detail, Flight Aware is a good option.
