API Movers and Shakers: Your Weekly API Performance Report

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was established on August 23, 1958, as a result of the Federal Aviation Act. It was created to regulate and oversee civil aviation in the United States, including air traffic control, airport safety, and the certification of pilots and aircraft.

Since its creation, the FAA has evolved to include new technologies and regulations to improve the safety and efficiency of air travel. The FAA also works to promote innovation in aviation and support the growth of the aerospace industry. In terms of future plans, the FAA is focused on modernizing the national airspace system, promoting sustainable aviation, and continuing to enhance safety and security.

The FAA has made news on several occasions, particularly for incidents related to air travel safety. For example, in 2013, the FAA grounded all Boeing 787 Dreamliners following incidents of battery fires. The FAA has also been involved in the investigation and response to various aviation disasters, such as the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in 2019.

The FAA’s infrastructure includes a network of air traffic control towers and facilities, as well as a system of regulations and guidelines for aviation safety. The FAA also has a significant online presence, with a website that provides information for pilots, travelers, and the general public.

The FAA has experienced some significant downtime incidents in the past. For example, in 2015, a technical glitch caused widespread flight cancellations and delays across the United States. The incident was caused by a malfunction in a software system used by air traffic controllers.

The FAA takes measures to safeguard its computer systems and data from cyber threats. However, like many organizations, it has experienced some breaches. In 2019, it was reported that a hacker had gained access to the FAA’s computer systems and stolen personal information about employees and contractors.

The FAA uses a variety of APIs to support its programs and services. Some of the APIs it uses include:

NOTAM Search API – provides access to information about Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs), which are alerts about potential hazards to air travel.

FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center API – offers access to real-time data about air traffic congestion and delays.

Airport Status API – provides information about airport closures, delays, and other factors that may affect air travel.

FAA Wildlife Strike Database API – allows users to search for information about bird strikes and other incidents involving wildlife and aircraft.
