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 2022, we activated hundreds of new receivers on all seven continents and thousands more volunteers added their home-built receivers to the Flightradar24 network. These amazing contributions by dedicated receivers hosts and volunteers helped us track 70,744,552 total flights including 35,874,450 commercial flights.
In December alone, 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 35,000 terrestrial receivers. New receivers in places like Australia, Brazil, India, New Zealand, and the United States are helping to fill in low-level coverage and MLAT tracking. New receivers in places like Antarctica, India, and Thailand 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 using our simple form. If you’d like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
Most wanted new receiver locations
The best locations for new Flightradar24 receiver kits are near an airport with a 360 degree view of the sky. We prioritize airports that currently lack ground coverage or would benefit from additional coverage. Do you live near an airport, but don’t see aircraft on the ground when you open Flightradar24? If so, we’d love to have you as an ADS-B receiver host. Apply to host a receiver today!
