longwei66/flightR: A package to interract with aviation-edge.com API

This package contains several functions to interract with several platform providing aviation API. For the moment, two platforms are supported : aviation-edge and opensky. 1) Aviation Edge (AE) covers dynamic data like flight tracker, Airport timetable, airline routes, nearby airports, autocomplete as well as more static data such as airports, airlines, airplanes, cities, countries, taxes and aircraft types. This package requires a valid API key from aviation-edge, which is available for free with limitations, premium packages start from 5$ for 30k calls per month. See https://aviation-edge.com/developers/ for details. "Aviation Edge database is divided between static and dynamic data. Static data is that what does not frequently change but due to the massive size of our database, there are constant updates. Think about airport and airline information. The dynamic data is that what changes more frequently or uses our software to turn it into useful tools. Think about flight tracking and airport timetables." 2 ) OpenSky Network’s (OSN) live API lets you retrieve live airspace information for research and non-commerical purposes (See terms and conditions). Information is provided in the form of State Vectors, Airplanes seen by the OpenSky Network are associated with flight state information derived from ADS-B and Mode S messages. The state of an aircraft is a summary of all tracking information (mainly position, velocity, and identity) at a certain point in time. These states of aircraft can be retrieved as state vectors in the form of a JSON object. Available API are : All State Vectors, Own State Vectors, Flights in Time Interval, Flights by Aircraft, Arrivals by Airport, Departures by Airport, Track by Aircraft.
