Call signs missing


FlightInfoStatus returns the ident, but in some cases the actual call sign could be different. For example, DLH uses alphanumerical call signs to avoid mistakes on the radio.

I believe FlightAware has access to this data but converts it to ident always. Would it be possible to provide the callsign as a matter of course?

Use case for example - joining FlightAware data with “raw data” from ADS B receivers.

looking into it. Will be back in touch soon.


It seems like it can and should be included. Discussed internally and we will work to include those data points in FlightInfoStatus as well as in the v2 queries.
