New Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers Activated in February 2018

In February, we activated over 100 new Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers joined the Flightradar24 network. Thanks to these new receivers and tens of thousands of others around the world, we tracked 4.4 million flights in February.

In February we activated 7 receivers in Brazil, 4 in Australia, 3 in Nepal, and singular receivers in important locations providing additional coverage in Iraq, Canada, the Central African Republic, Kenya, Russia, Libya, Argentina, and Indonesia. In the US we activated multiple receivers in the southeast, improving MLAT coverage in an important part of the country.
