Whether taking off from airports, heliports, or seaports – which are collectively known as aerodromes – the aviation industry relies on up-to-date information in order to operate safely and effectively. With more than 18,000 aerodromes around the world, access to related aviation data has never been more important.
The Aerodromes API is powered by the same unmatched NavData® used by airlines, corporate flight departments, and global avionics providers. The API supplies access to the most complete and accurate aeronautical information available.
APIs are essential in the production, execution, and continuous improvement of internet applications that further innovation. Aerospace developers rely on APIs like Aerodromes to simplify their efforts, facilitate the rapid transfer of data, and enable greater functionality.
The Aerodromes API uses point geometry to supply users with reference point, usage, region, and other identifying aviation information. This includes associated runways and aerodrome area geometries, allowing users to pinpoint exactly what they’re looking for using geographical area search. This data is updated every 28 days to ensure accuracy, in line with the Aeronautical Information Regulation and Control cycle.
Boeing leads the way in aerospace APIs with Boeing Developer Tools. Our portal allows aerospace developers and technical project managers to rapidly browse, test, and purchase APIs, as well as software development kits (SDKs). Born out of a need to connect Boeing’s own digital products and services, Boeing Developer Tools couples the company’s cutting-edge technology with unparalleled aviation data history.
Innovative ideas require speed and flexibility, without being weighed down by complicated implementation details. At the same time, aerospace solutions need accurate, up-to-date aeronautical information that’s available in an instant. The Aerodromes API simplifies complex tasks, opening the door to the innovative solutions of the future.
