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 September, 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 more than 34,000 terrestrial receivers. New receivers in places like Australia, Brazil, China, New Zealand, and the United States are helping to fill in low-level coverage and MLAT tracking. New receivers in places like Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Sierra Leone 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 using our simple form. 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. Are reading this in Australia? If you are are you’re more than 200 kilometers from the coast, we’d love to have you as an ADS-B receiver host. Apply to host a receiver today!
