Aircraft's age


Hello. I am looking for aircrafts age/when aircraft was manufactured based on the tail number or flight number. Does FlightAware API XML3 deliver such information?


Unfortunately that is not currently a capability of FlightXML2 or 3. We may consider it for a future version of our API though.


It would be nice if you implement it in future version of API, because everybody like new planes )


As a workaround, you can simply make your app launch a web browser to the registration page on the FlightAware website for the registration you are interested in. For example: https://flightaware.com/resources/registration/N857CP
