Historical dataRecent dataLive data stream
Advanced processingFlights History API
A light-weight API that delivers historic flight data in one JSON object per historic flight request, each identified by a unique flight ID, via a REST endpoint.
Flight Report
Extremely light, one-row-per-flight structure for air traffic occurring over the previous calendar day (UTC) in csv format on a daily, weekly or monthly recurring basis.
Flights Live API
A REST API that delivers a rich mixture of real-time flight, aircraft, airline, airport, and schedule metadata in one JSON object per flight requested.

Events Stream API
A real-time continuous data stream of all significant events occurring over a flight’s lifecycle in one JSON object per flight requested.

Success stories

Impact of space-based data on applications, decision-making, and cost efficiencies



“Combining ch-aviation’s extensive fleet data with Spire Global’s satellite-based ADS-B data will create a wide range of immediately actionable insights, updated daily. It will allow MRO providers to track aircraft maintained by competitors, lessors to monitor their assets, airlines to benchmark their operational performance relative to competitors, and charter brokers to see which contracts they missed out on — providing a whole new dimension to the market intelligence ch-aviation makes available to the industry.”

Thomas Jaeger
Founder and CEO – ch-aviation
