Hi – thanks for reading!
Using an alternative data service I’ve built an application that retrieves, processes and displays updated flight information for all of today’s flights to and from a given airport. While we’ve achieved the desired functionality, the current data provider and their ancient API are causing a lot of headaches. We’re looking at potentially switching to FlightAware.
I’ve read through some of the documentation and code examples but as another preliminary step, I thought I would reach out here to see if there is any standard way to get the kind of information we need from FlightAware without making superfluous API calls.
If anyone has any thoughts on this I’d love to hear them.
Also interested in whether the newer V3 API would be better equipped to handle this kind of task?
Thanks so much!
