new receivers added this year

100 newly activated receivers in April helped us track 4.8 million flights, including our busiest day of the year so far when we tracked 173,815 flights on 28 April. New receivers in Nepal, Australia, China, and around the Caribbean are adding great new coverage.

?? In Nepal, we activated three new receivers, extending our growing coverage area there and covering more domestic flights.

?? Four new receivers on the coast of Australia are extending our coverage area there. The receiver in Western Australia is helping extend coverage of flights passing over the Indian Ocean.

?? In China, new receiver clusters are extending our MLAT coverage and filling coverage gaps in the region.

?? In Brazil, MLAT coverage is increasing thanks to new receivers in the areas around São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Check out the map below to see where else new receivers are helping close coverage gaps and extend MLAT coverage.
