What does the idea of Flightradar24 intend

Flightradar24 started in Jare 2006. As two Swedish computer experts followed their hobby and wanted to spread the network of ADS-B transponders to the whole territory of Northern and Central Europe. The project was developed in 2007 by the Swedish company Travel Network Ltd. The decisive turnaround came in 2009, when the decision was made to open this network to all volunteers so that each ADS-B owner could receive the data and send it to the network. The volunteers need no registration. The company Travel Network Ltd promotes the expansion of the network and provides free of charge the radio measuring device to the volunteers. All continents have been covered by radio coverage, but global denser coverage is still ahead. Since 2016, a wave glider has been deployed on the European North Sea, which sends aircraft position data directly to flight radar.
