FlightAware REST API

FlightXML is used to build aviation related applications which can query FlightAware's live flight information. Information available includes aircraft location, flight or tail number, origin and destination airports, aircraft type, altitude and ground speed, among others. Airport information such as scheduled flights is also available. The FlightXML API supports the SOAP protocol, but a light-weight REST inspired protocol for mobile and web applications is also available.
