Each month we send out new Flightradar24 ADS-B receivers to hosts around the world to increase ADS-B and MLAT coverage. During the first half of 2017 we’ve activated 550 new Flightradar24 receivers and thousands of additional home-built receivers. This month those receivers helped us track over 5.1 million flights.
