    I'm going to need to write a flight tracker web application for a client and I'm wondering if some of you can assist me in the right direction with this. What I'm looking for, hopefully, is an API from some place that'll allow me to hook into their system and use their data. If not, I'm open to alternate suggestions. Lettuce hear what you have to say.

    U sure?

    "This full-featured flight status application can be included on your website using a simple iFrame. The Standard version includes an airport information application that provides current airport delay information, current weather conditions and forecasts, plus security wait times for US airports. There is also an option in the Standard version for setting up email or text message flight alerts. The application can be customized to fit the look and feel of your site by specifying the style sheet, button colors and language."

    I checked it out and it appeared to be haunted with ads. This may be a viable solution otherwise.

    I've no idea but I don't see the API freely available on this site.

    I don't think anyone is going to give free access to their flight tracking information..unless you scrape it
