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.
