As I have been accustomed to you for 7 years now, the beginning of the year comes with retrospectives and presentations from the aeronautical industry recorded in the previous year. We are at the beginning of 2020, so let's talk a little about the air traffic recorded and monitored in 2019 by Flightradar24.
In short, in 2019, the Flightradar24 monitoring system was "with eyes" on 68.948.849 of flights. Here comes all the flights that could be monitored: commercial, business, charters and even some military flights.

Flightradar24 manages to monitor any aircraft / helicopter with ADS-B transponder on. In 2019, over 700 ADS-B receivers supplied by Flightradar24 were activated worldwide. Plus another 2000 receivers built and installed on a voluntary basis.
And the network is expanding. The more receivers, the better the information provided.
