    ADS-B Gets Green Light, GPS Backup Less Clear

    I would suggest that flights being over land isn't the reason for the lack of ADS-B equipment on US and Canadian domestic aircraft.

    The FAA's initial reluctance to support the adoption of ADS-B is the more likely cause.

    There are active radar box users in Portland, LAX and Minneapolis who generally offer modest cover, but as mentioned above, there is a general lack of ADS-B on domestic fleets across the USA and Canada, which seriously limits what FR24 can display. Primary reason is that most routes are overland, so the terrestrial nav-aids provide all the positioning data flights require and of course all airfields have their local radar to position these non ADS-B operations. You will find that most FR24 tracked flights in this region are with International carriers!

    I see lots of traffic on the west coast of the United States on FR24.

    http://www.radarvirtuel.com/ has traffic on the East Coast & West Coast of the United States.

    Not entirely true. There is some coverage around LAX and in the Pacific NW, which enables us to see a lot of Boeings testflights as well as the regular traffic in the area. However, as ADS-B is not as widely used on aircraft in the US, there is a lot of traffic we can't see, even with coverage. Notably, neither Southwest nor Alaska Airlines have ADS-B in their fleet.
