New Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers Activated in November 2016
In November, we activated over 100 new receivers, which helped us track 4,432,002 flights during the month. New receivers activated this month added important coverage in remote areas as well as helped us increase our MLAT coverage areas.
Adding to our arctic coverage, we activated a new receiver near Pond Inlet, Canada and one near Pevek, Russia. Moving south, new receivers in French Polynesia and Western Australia are filling previous gaps. In Africa, new receivers in Libya, Morocco, Nigeria, and Madagascar are adding needed coverage.
New receivers in China, Brazil, and United States also improved our MLAT coverage in those areas. Also in the US, we activated a new receiver in Mobile, Alabama, increasing our coverage of Airbus test flights there.
Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during November (click to expand).
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. If you’re interested, please apply today. If you’d you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
If you prefer to use your own hardware and have a Raspberry Pi you can now help us increase MLAT coverage as well. Please see our Raspberry Pi page for more information and to begin sharing data today.
