The flight data used by Plane Finder is collected via ground based ADS-B receiving stations located all over the world.
We work very hard to continually increase our global coverage and it is improving all of the time.
ADS-B Data Sharing
We understand that a lot of time and effort goes into running a full or part time ADS-B data feed and very much appreciate and data that is shared with us. If you share data please make sure you ask us for free apps. We would also be delighted to hear from you if you ever need help in any way and will try our very best to help out.
If you have an ADS-B receiver of any type and want to see your data in Plane Finder, please head over to our client page here: https://planefinder.net/sharing/coverage
Alternatively contact us at [email protected] and we’ll respond straight away.
Please don’t forget to ask us for free apps too.
Free ADS-B Receivers
If you are in a location that does not have any data, or if you think that you can help improve our current ADS-B coverage (such as from a location near a major airport) we may be able to supply a free ADS-B receiver and setup. There are a few technical requirements that need to be met but you don’t have to know anything about the technology in advance to do this.
