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 of home-built receivers activated in October, combined with over 20,000 existing receivers, helped us track 5.6 million flights.

New receiver kits were installed in remote locations to help improve our coverage area and in locations with nearby receivers to increase our MLAT coverage. In places like Western Australia, Iraq, and Papua New Guinea new receivers are helping track more ADS-B equipped flights, while new receivers in western Canada and Mexico are increasing our MLAT coverage.

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 you like more information about our application process, you can read more about it in our blog post.
