  • Plane Icons

    Hi, I am new to flightradar24.
    I searched everywhere but couldn't find a list of the different icons used for the different aircrafts.
    Is there a list with the different icons and what they stand for? Or could someone help me with explanations of the icons?
    I'd love to learn about all this, but I have to confess, that I have problems understanding most of the threads, as I am almost completely new to this topic, but got hooked.
    I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.
    Thanks

    Did you get an answer somehow or find out by yourself? I have also looked everywhere (in the About, FAQ and How it Works) without results!

        There is no list.

        Icons are just an indicator, based on the 'type' ICAO shortcode listed for each airframe. Of which there are thousands.

        You can work out what they likely are by looking at different areas

        Ground vechicle
        Helicopter (various)
        Bizjet
        Light aircraft
        light twin engine
        Medium twin engine
        tri-jet
        Fokker-like twin tail jet
        Light twin jet
        Heavy twin jet
        Large 4-engine jet
        Super 4-engine jet

          And from that list, one of these is chosen.

            Thank you for the list. But there's no description i.e. "icon showing giant jet with 4 engines: Airbus A380" and so on? How does F24 know how to "translate" them? I mean, there must be some kind of system?
