I’m a new user integrating FlightXML into a .NET application. I’ve run into a few issues I’d like to bring to your attention, I tried e-mailing the problems but got no response.
- When using the AirportInfo method, the lat/lon are reversed. Here is an example for KDFW:
Name: Dallas/Fort Worth Intl
Location: Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
Time Zone: CST6CDT
- When trying the ZipCode method, an error is returned:
can’t read “data(long)”: no such element in array
- I don’t understand the TimeZone presentation in the AirportInfo, as you can see above it shows:
Time Zone: CST6CDT.
I’d like to see the documentation improved so we can better understand the input and return values.
I’d like to see a test system on your site where I can enter a value and see the return results. This will allow us to test the system directly from your implementation vs. ours so we can verify there is an error in the system vs. our implementation.
I’d like to join a “developer” mailing list so you can e-mail me information related to problems, improvements, outages, etc. to the service we pay for.
You have additional resources I’d love to have access to such as your airport diagrams, PDF approach plates, etc. Maybe methods that return byte arrays would be better than Base64 encoded strings?
I’d like to see information on the use of the “offset” and “nextoffset” properties and how to effectively use them in iterating results, etc, requering for the next set of data, etc.
Thank you for providing this service.
