Data Content

Spire’s Flight Report pulls key observed insights from the positional Tracking Stream API and enriches these with flight and aircraft information to deliver a concise, one-line-per-flight report in csv format.

Developed specifically as a light and accessible dataset, the Flight Report in csv is designed to deliver all the key insights on each flight tracked by ADS-B across the globe. This means that with each flight report delivery, you can expect to find one row per flight with all the additional flight and aircraft information to satisfy your use case.
