Aircraft crashes are always accompanied with monumental loses. Other than the very high mortality rate involved, the grand scale destruction of property and the attendant socio - economic costs have made air crashes one of the most feared event in the world today. Guaranteeing a hundred percent safety during flight is impossible. We present, the design of an aircraft tracking system with a view to enhancing the effective tracking of aircrafts in flight, thereby ensuring air safety and preserving public trust and belief in the safety of air travel.
