FlightBox: Making Aviation Safer And More Affordable

Open Flight Solutions is dedicated to the idea that aviation technology does not have to be expensive. FlightBox, our premier product, is a portable ADS-B receiver and multi-function sensor system based on the Stratux open source project.


Get real-time weather updates with NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, winds & temps aloft, and more - no subscription required.


Enhance your ability to see-and-avoid with direct ship-to-ship and ATC rebroadcast traffic. We support UAT and 1090-ES.


FlightBox optionally includes a GPS receiver - perfect for wifi only tablets or as a backup to your primary GPS.


FlightBox has been tested with many popular aviation apps including WingX Pro, iFly GPS, FlyQ EFB and FF.

Easy to Use

Snap it together in less than five minutes. Power it up and fly. That's all there is to it.


Designed as a modular framework, FlightBox allows you to upgrade as new features and functions are added to Stratux.


Built from aviation-grade materials and incorporating active cooling, FlightBox is built to handle heat, UV, and vibration.


Starting out at $200, FlightBox is the lowest cost portable ADS-B receiver on the market today.


Open Flight Solutions stands behind FlightBox. If you have questions or issues, we're there to help.
