Exact meaning of inAir in SEARCH api


#1

The documentation says “Search performs a query for data on all airborne aircraft”. In that case please could you tell me what is the purpose of the inAir key for SEARCH?


#2

The search database actually includes some future flights and recently past flights (generally all flights within 24 hours of now), and “inAir” restricts the search to be just the ones actually flying.

Thanks.
