I am currently working trial writing a program capable of determining where a given aircraft is based on ATFM timestamps. My aviation background is pretty limited as I am only a mere IT developer.
When is an aircraft on the runway? Of course when it lands, and when it's about to take off, but there do not seem to be timestamps that indicate this?
Well the first one, the landing on to a runway seem to be covered by ALDT. But when it's on the runway for taking off? ATOT? Is the aircraft not airborne at that point?
How do I using the ATFM timestamps determine when an aircraft is on the runway ready to take off?
Per a comment: AFTM is Air Traffic Flow Management, ALDT is aircraft landing time and ATOT is aircraft takeoff time.
