Each month we send out complete ADS-B 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. The more than 100 new Flightradar24-supplied receiver kits and the hundreds more home-built receivers activated in February combined with over 25,000 existing ADS-B receivers, helped us track over 5 million flights—the first time we’ve tracked more than 5 million flights during the month of February.

New receivers activated in February helped improve our coverage on six continents. Our Brazilian coverage expanded with 11 new receivers. In Africa, we activated 9 receivers in 7 different countries. And in southeast Asia, our coverage in Indonesia grew thanks to 4 new receivers. Low-level ADS-B and MLAT coverage in Europe also grew significantly, especially in the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, and northern France. Finally, new receivers on islands in the North and South Pacific Ocean are helping track even more transpacific flights.
