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 May, we activated dozens of Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers on all seven continents. 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 Brazil, Mexico, Poland, and the United States, are helping to fill in low-level coverage and MLAT tracking. New receivers in places like Angola, Sudan, Madagascar, and Malaysia 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.
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. Right now, if you live near or work at a commercial airport in southeast Asia, we would love to send you an ADS-B receiver kit—especially locations in Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam.
We recently published a list of locations in the United States where we’d like to send receivers.
