New Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers Activated in October 2017

In October we activated nearly 100 new receivers, including a few that have immediately had a large coverage impact. Throughout the month, we tracked 4.9 million flights, nearly 300,000 more flights than in October 2016.

Two new receivers in Yemen, including one on Socotra, are providing good coverage of flights over the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea. A cluster of receivers in the southern United States are helping provide increased coverage and expanded MLAT coverage there. And a new receiver in Slave Lake, Canada is helping with coverage of flights in central Canada.

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 new 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.

Use Your Own Hardware

Have a Raspberry Pi sitting around collecting dust or looking to get started with tracking flights with a quick project? Build your own receiver to help us increase ADS-B and MLAT coverage in your area. Our simple guide walks you through the steps from getting the parts you need to setting up your receiver. Learn more today!

New Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers Activated in June and the First Half of 2017

Each month we send out new Flightradar24 ADS-B receivers to hosts around the world to increase ADS-B and MLAT coverage. During the first half of 2017 we’ve activated 550 new Flightradar24 receivers and thousands of additional home-built receivers. This month those receivers helped us track over 5.1 million flights.

Continuing Toward a Global ADS-B Ecosystem

ADS-B-supported surveillance offers the most promise for the widest variety of safety, environmental, and operational performance solutions and we continue to work with a variety of industry leading partners to develop global coverage solutions. We’re excited to announce today two new initiatives that add to our efforts to track any aircraft, anytime, anywhere. (more…)

New Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers Activated in February 2017

We added 100 new receivers in February, which helped us track 4.1 million flights during the month. We’re adding receivers that help close existing coverage gaps and we closed a few significant gaps in February.

We added another new receiver in northern Greenland, this time on the west coast, expanding our northern coverage area and coverage of transatlantic flights. Also helping with transatlantic coverage are new receivers in northern Norway and the Faroe Islands.

We also closed a few coverage gaps in Australia with new receivers in Western Australia and Northern Territory. A new receiver in Perth is also helping with lower level MLAT coverage. To the northeast, a new receiver in New Caledonia and another in French Polynesia are helping with additional transpacific coverage.

In Central and South America we added a cluster of receivers in Mexico and Guatemala, boosting our coverage there. In Brazil multiple pairs of receivers are helping with MLAT coverage. And in southern Chile a new receiver in Castro is adding new coverage.

Elsewhere, a new receiver in Imphal, India has improved our lower level coverage in the area. New receivers in Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen are all helping with coverage in the Red Sea and the surrounding areas.

Looking Ahead

A Tara Air Twin Otter landing at Lukla, the gateway to Mt Everest.

We’re currently sending multiple receivers to Nepal to enhance our coverage there. Some of Nepal’s domestic fleet has recently been fitted with ADS-B transponders and we’re looking forward to tracking our first landing at Lukla in the near future. We still need additional hosts in the area, especially outside of Kathmandu, so if you’re interested or might know someone who is, please get in contact with us or apply to host a receiver.
