Direct Flight question.....


What software does API as described below? Any open source or freeware apps out there?


FlightAware DirectFlight API (Application Programming Interface) from FlightAware allows customers to seamlessly incorporate FlightAware technology and flight tracking data into existing or new aviation software applications. DirectFlight provides an industry standard web services-based programmatic interface to FlightAware data and statistics.


Virtually every modern language supports it natively.

We’ve tested it with Microsoft .NET, PHP, Perl, Java, Tcl, and Python


Not coming from a programming background, is this something a rookie like me can develop or will there be some pre-conceived / sample files for newbies like me to tinker around with?

Or am I jumping ahead and should be waiting for the direct flight forum to come alive? :smiley:
