Supplemental data

Airports

airports.csv describes the locations of US airports, with the fields:

  • iata: the international airport abbreviation code
  • name of the airport
  • city and country in which airport is located.
  • lat and long: the latitude and longitude of the airport

This majority of this data comes from the FAA, but a few extra airports (mainly military bases and US protectorates) were collected from other web sources by Ryan Hafen and Hadley Wickham.

Carrier codes

Listing of carrier codes with full names: carriers.csv

Planes

You can find out information about individual planes by googling the tail number or by looking it up in the FAA database. plane-data.csv is a csv file produced from the (some of) the data on that page.

Weather

Meteorological data is available from (among many others) NOAA and weather underground. The call sign for airport weather stations can be constructed by adding K to the airport code, e.g. KORD, KLAX, KSEA.
