Searching for air traffic control App for Mode-S receiver ?

PP Friend is the one and only App for your Mode-S receiver and PlanePlotter software or Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 with Basestation software.

This App shows plane list with lot of infos (callsign, position, speed etc., based on data transmitted by plane transponder and received by Mode-S receiver) and realtime map with country flags and plane sihlouettes.

A Mode-S receiver and PlanePlotter (or Basestation) software ARE ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

If you build Mode-S receivers, I will be happy to add your receiver to the supported receivers, please contact me.

As always, I will be happy to listen to your suggestions for adding features to the App.
