I called FlightAware technical support to ask if there was any way to get flight data afterwards (i.e. not live). I was told that the data was available for 2 weeks. I asked how to get that data but they were not sure. My normal process for collecting data during the actually flight time window is done using SearchBirdseyeInFlight. I do see that it states in the API documentation that results are only available within 24 hours … so, this leads to two questions essentially:
Is there a way to get flight data from a specified lat/lon box in a specified time (past 24 hours but less than 2 weeks), and if so, what is the function?
If the answer to #1 above is no, then why did technical support tell me that the data is available for 2 weeks?
Thanks very much!
