About Us

Fresh Aviation Data was originally started in 2019 as a joint project between two aviation enthusiasts to provide up-to-date data of aircraft, airline fleets, aircraft movements, aircraft construction lists and airport information from around the globe. The first version of the platform was a step towards where we are today.

The first version of the website being a bit slow and buggy, but nevertheless with progress into aviation data.

Primarily during the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK we found ourselves with a fair bit of time on our hands and the idea to resurrect the project begun, the team set about re-developing and re-designing the website to be fast, accurate and up to date as well as working seamlessly on any internet connected device.

Step forward to today and we have a website that is fully automated providing airline fleets, aircraft movements, aircraft data, flight arrivals and departures and so much more. The possibilities of the data are endless.

During the process we would like to thank the following websites, companies and organisations:

  • Opensky Network - for providing some of the core flight data
  • SpottingLog - for providing historical data and superb aircraft photos through the use of their API
  • PlaneBase - for aircraft data
  • Fresh Aviation - for providing a stable server environment and support

We are always looking for websites looking to contribute data, if you host a flight tracking website and would be willing to share your data then please do get in touch. All contributors recieve access to our API and are always credited on our website.

We have many plans for the future of Fresh Aviation Data to further develop and expand what we offer, but for now enjoy the data and if you have any questions, comments or suggestions please get in contact with us.

API Information

Here at Fresh Aviation Data we believe in data sharing amongst the community to enable all non-profit organisations to fulfil their potential. Our goal is not to be just another flight tracking service, with just live flight coordinates and altitudes, but to offer data which might not be available elsewhere, or would be out of reach for societies and non-profit organisations. We do not offer data to for-profit organisations. We offer a range of API services where you can query our data, including, but not limited to:

  • Aircraft currently at an airport, including arrival time
  • Current live flight status of a given aircraft, including position, route and photo
  • Flight history of a given aircraft, including departure, arrival, times and flight time
  • Flight history between 2 airports, including aircraft, departure and arrival times, and flight time
  • High quality aircraft photos, from our partner SpottingLog.

Our live flight data comes from the Opensky Network free API, you must use this to get worldwide coverage of aircraft and not our own services. Please note that your API key will be subject to terms of use. This will include, but not limited to, limitations on requests per minute, ensuring the API key remains confidential at all times, crediting Fresh Aviation on any pages the data is used, not abusing our system, and you must make absolutely no revenue from our data whatsoever. Fresh Aviation reserve the right to remove any API key at any time.

If you have a specific request then please do contact us. We want to help as much as possible.
