Aeronautical Data V2 (1.0.0)

Download OpenAPI specification:Download

Introduction

The Aeronautical Data APIs, part of the Laminar Data Hub provide information on airspaces and microlights.

Cirium is transitioning Aeronautical V1 APIs to v2 APIs and will eventually retire v1. In the meantime, please see Aeronautical V1 APIs for more Aeronautical APIs.

Licensing

The Aeronautical Data APIs currently require a contract to use.

Airspaces V2

Airspaces by FIR

Retrieves a list of airspaces for a FIR, depending on response content type chosen the format will be different:

  • application/geo+json will produce a GeoJSON formatted response
  • application/xml will produce an AIXM 5.1 formatted response<

Response includes:

  • Designator (e.g. EGTTOCKC)
  • Positional information

For a list of possible ICAO prefixes and FIRs refer to the Reference Data APIs.

path Parameters
icao.prefix
required
string

First letter of the ICAO designator e.g. E (Case sensitive)

fir.icao
required
string

ICAO code of the FIR e.g. EGTT (Case sensitive)

query Parameters
user_key

string

User Key Authentication Parameter

Microlight

Microlight aerodromes by country code

Retrieves full details for microlight aerodromes within the provided ISO 3166 Country Code in GeoJSON.

Microlight aerodromes are small, often grass runway, aerodromes that are used mostly for hobbyist flights. They may not appear in our other aerodrome APIs as they are often too minor to appear in many official databases.

Important:

  • This API is NOT AIRAC cycle based and may update on any day
  • Currently only France (FRA) is supported. If any other country code is requested you will receive a 422 error response.
  • Use of data provided by this API is subject to clause 1.6 of the Laminar Data End User License Agreement
path Parameters
country.iso
required
string

The ISO country code to filter aerodromes by, e.g. FRA (Case sensitive)

query Parameters
user_key
required
string
