Each month we send out complete ADS-B receiver kits that include an ADS-B receiver, antennas, and all necessary cabling to qualified hosts to help increase flight tracking all around the world. You can apply to host one of our receivers or easily build your own.
In December, we activated dozens of Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers. Each new receiver helps us increase flight tracking coverage and provide redundancy across our network of more than 30,000 terrestrial receivers. New receivers in places like the United States, Iceland, South Korea, and Australia are helping to fill in low-level coverage and MLAT tracking. New receivers in places like Cuba, Papua New Guinea, Malawi, and Somalia are adding areas of coverage to our network.

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 like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.

Our simple guide walks you through the steps from getting the parts you need to setting up your receiver. Find out more about building your own ADS-B Receiver.
New receivers added in 2021
The map below shows all Flightradar24-supplied complete receiver kits activated in 2021. In 2022, we’ll continue to prioritize sending receivers to locations where additional coverage is most needed, like remote locations and busy airports.
