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 dozens of 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 4.3 million flights in March.

The response to COVID-19 had an extraordinary effect on air traffic in March, see how air traffic changed in just one month.

We activated new receivers on all seven continents in March, adding our third receiver in Antarctica. In South America we activated a dozen receivers in Brazil expanding our coverage area and enhancing lower level coverage as well. In the United States nearly two dozen receivers are helping enhance our low-level coverage. A cluster of receivers in India and Bangladesh is providing enhanced coverage in a critical portion of heavily used airspace. And in Australia, we continue to expand our low altitude coverage with a group of new receivers in the south east portion of the country.
