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.

In October, we activated dozens of Flightradar24-supplied ADS-B receivers and hundreds more home-built receivers. Each new receiver helps us increase flight tracking coverage and provide redundancy across our network of over 25,000 terrestrial receivers. In October, new receivers throughout the United States helped increase our low-level coverage there. New receivers in North Africa and South Asia have helped fill terrestrial coverage gaps and in South America, clusters of new receivers are adding coverage for both ADS-B and MLAT tracked flights.

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