Firehose Documentation Center

Purpose

Firehose is a FlightAware API for receiving streaming flight positions (e.g., Radar, ADS-B, Mode S multilateration (MLAT), datalink, etc) as well as flight status data (e.g., flight plans, departure/arrival messages, flight updates) and surface movement positions. This page defines a protocol for establishing a connection and receiving data from the Firehose interface.

If you have questions please check our frequently asked questions to see if your topic has already been answered there before contacting your account representative for support.

Firehose can also be used in conjunction with FlightAware Global for added satellite uplinks and EUROCONTROL data. Other aircraft operator's data can be integrated as well: read about Improving Tracking of Your Flights on FlightAware.

*Australia radar and ADS-B is only available for internal consumption (e.g., not for redistribution to third parties beyond yourself).

  • All messages are in UTF-8 encoding.
