Hey, I’m trying to visualise all of the RFDS (Royal Flying Doctor Service Australia) aircraft on a live flight map.
On the RFDS website they currently use the following FlightAware TV service
However to implement an alternative visualisation of the aircraft in flight I would need to have access to an endpoint with the same data provided to the FlightAware TV service.
My question is, what is the best way to go about retrieving the necessary data (lat, lon, alt, trip data, etc). RFDS have roughly 70 registered aircraft, so regularly querying them each individually isn’t a great option.
Is Firehose an option, or have I missed an easy way to retrieve the data with a relatively low amount of API calls?
