One question about InFlightInfo


#1

I’m using InFlightInfo to get the current position information for an enroute flight. It returns a departureTime and a firstPositionTime. My question is what’s the relationship between those two times. Is it possible that the firstPositionTime is earlier than the departureTime for a regular case?


#2

Most likely the other way around, departureTime can be before firstPositionTime. firstPositionTime will be set by the first ‘position’ event that is seen while departureTime can be triggered from a departure message we receive from a feed. So I wouldn’t ever expect the firstPositionTime to be before the departureTime.
