One of my favorite flight tracking websites soft-launched its Android App earlier this month. FlightAware is one of the most in-depth aviation websites around, with tons of content, tracking and information for those in the cockpit or sitting back in the cheap seats.
The Android app has all of the flight tracking you're used to from the website -- you can track by flight number, tail number or route. You can look up airport info (by name or airport code) as well, and see airport delays for the major hubs nationwide. If you're registered with FlightAware's website, you also can access your saved airports, aircraft and alerts.
The app is easy to use, but the maps could be a little smoother, and we'd kill to see Tripit support. FlightAware's not yet going to take over as our No. 1 travel app just yet, but it's certainly a strong showing for an initial launch.
We've got hands-on video, the press release and download links after the break.
