Some great improvements to the FlightRadar24 Cockpit View

A few months ago we showed you the neat “aircraft view” on It was a new feature that showed the view of planes in flight via the Google Earth plug-in, based on coordinate and altitude information.
In the time since then, they’ve renamed the feature “Cockpit View” and it’s become quite a bit better.


You’ll see in the photo above that it now includes a map overlay, a fully functioning instrument panel, and a “rotate view” button that allows you to see out the sides and back of the plane.
To see this in action for yourself, simply head over to, click on a plane in the map, then choose “Cockpit View” from the menu on the left.
