In August, we tracked 5.9 million flights, just slightly fewer flights than last month.  During the month, we activated dozens of Flightradar24-supplied receivers around the world, focusing on areas where we could substantially improve our ADS-B or MLAT coverage. Each month we send out complete receiver kits that include an ADS-B receiver, antennas, and all necessary cabling to qualified hosts. You can apply to host one of our receivers or easily build your own.

Help Add ADS-B Coverage

We are always looking for new receiver hosts. Especially if you or someone you know lives in a remote location, please apply to host a receiver. All of our receiver hosts get a free Flightradar24 Business Subscription, which can be used on the web or within our mobile app. If you’re interested, please apply today. If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
