I have a 24-bit ICAO aircraft address and would like to get some information about the flights of that aircraft. As far as I can see, the FlightInfoEx call can return the faFlightID of recent flights given a tail number, but I cannot seem to find an API call that can return the tail number from the ICAO24 address. Am I missing something, or does the FlightXML API not have this functionality? If not, are there any APIs out there which support this?
For example, I can translate the aircraft address 7C1471 to VH-EBN using airframes.org/, and can then lookup VH-EBN using the FlightInfoEx call. I’d like to replace the visit to airframes.org with some API call
Fantastic, thank you very much!
For now I’ll mostly be using FlightInfoEx and GetFlightID to pass the faFlightID along to GetHistoricalTrack. Being able to search by ICAO in both those calls would be a great feature.
Actually, being able to search by ICAO instead of tail number in general (e.g. in FlightInfo, InFlightInfo, MapFlight, …) would be neat
