get most of the aircraft position data from our network of about 7,000 ADS-B receivers around the world. ADS-B data is transmitted from the aircraft transponder through radio signals that can be picked up by an ADS-B radio receiver. There are several ADS-B receivers on the market and it's also possible to build your own ADS-B receiver for about USD 100. By installing a receiver you can help us increase coverage by up to about 250-400 km (150-250 miles) in all directions depending on your location.
If you already have an ADS-B receiver, you can share your data with Flightradar24 by downloading our data sharing software.Learn more
