Flight Tracking

In an effort to provide the community with additional tools to understand flight operations in their area, we now offer a flight tracking system called PublicVue. Users can view flight information as well as submit noise concerns directly within the application. Find out how to get started using the application by visiting our Quick Start Guides and Resources below.

Please note:

  • Flight information displayed is on a 10 minute delay due to security reasons.
  • Flight altitudes are displayed as above mean sea level (AMSL). Because Phoenix has a starting elevation above sea level, the number needs to be adjusted to determine the actual distance above the ground.
    • For example, the elevation at PHX is approximately 1,100 feet. To determine the distance above ground level (AGL) of the aircraft showing an altitude of 5,100 feet flying over the airport, the user should subtract the elevation from the altitude indicated in PublicVue. So 5,100 – 1,100 = 4,000 ft above ground level.
