  • flights: all flights that departed from NYC in 2013
  • weather: hourly meterological data for each airport
  • planes: construction information about each plane
  • airports: airport names and locations
  • airlines: translation between two letter carrier codes and names

  • nycflights for flights departing from from NYC in the last year.

  • anyflights for flights departing from any airport in any year.

  • airlines to maintain a local SQL database of all flight departure data.


nycflights13 1.0.0

  • weather$time_hour and flights$time_hour are now stored in the America/New_York timezone (#19).

  • weather data updated from latest Iowa State mesonet (@rmcd1024, #24). wind_gust is now correctly captured from the underlying data, rather than being a copy of wind_speed. precip is better captures the hourly preciptation (which tends to be recorded at 51 minutes past the hour) (#27)

nycflights13 0.2.0

  • airlines: carrier columns are characters instead of factors (#2).
