From Vardoe, Norway, to Rio Gallegos, Argentina, in the final two weeks of October, we activated nearly 100 new receivers. We expanded our coverage in various places, including United States, Argentina, and Iran. We also enhanced our MLAT coverage in China, Iran, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. We also expanded our oceanic coverage with new receivers in the Azores.
In the past, we have detailed how we track flights with ADS-B and MLAT, but that is just the beginning of a long journey to displaying a flight on our site and in our apps. In this post we’ll bring together a few of our past posts and walk through how planes flying overhead turn into icons on your screen. (more…)
We activated nearly 100 new receivers in the first two weeks of October, improving our coverage all over the world. In South America, we grew our coverage area in Chile and Argentina with the three new receivers south of Buenos Aires and four new receivers in Brazil. In North America we grew our coverage area in the western half of the United States. In September, we added a new receiver on Greenland’s east coast and during the past two weeks we activated a new receiver on the west coast, expanding our transatlantic coverage. (more…)
The last two weeks of September saw a flurry of receiver activations around the world. We expanded our coverage area on six continents and increase MLAT coverage in key locations while adding nearly 100 receivers. (more…)
In the first two weeks of September we’ve expanded our coverage in a few important areas and increased MLAT coverage in others. We activated new receivers in Nigeria, Mozambique, Marshall Islands, Guadeloupe, and multiple receivers in Indonesia. We also activated new receivers around the United States increasing our coverage there. We also increased our MLAT coverage in India and Japan.
Also of note is our new receiver in Courchevel, France, one of the most challenging airports to fly to in the world. (more…)
August was a month of extreme latitudes and locations for our new receivers. In the first half of the month we went north as we added new receivers in northern Canada, Greenland, Norway, and Russia. In the latter half of the month, we moved south to South America. During August we activated 11 new receivers in Argentina alone, including one in Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city. (more…)
In the first two weeks of August, we went north. Far north. Our newest northernmost receiver is now active in Resolute, Canada. We also added receivers in northern Russia, Norway, Greenland, and Alaska. All of these receivers will help add coverage of long-haul transoceanic and polar flights. We also went south to activate a new receiver in French Polynesia. This receiver should help with our coverage in the south Pacific. (more…)
Flying cars, strange detours, impossible flight paths? When tracking hundreds of thousands of flights per day, various errors arise from time-to-time. We regularly get questions about why a particular flight track looks odd and the reason often falls in to a few categories. (more…)
We are excited to announce that JetPhotos.net is now a part of the Flightradar24 family. JetPhotos.net is the largest aviation photography website in the world with over 2.9 million photos and hundreds more being added everyday. (more…)
