Getting currently supported aircraft/layout options

SimBrief adds or modifies the available aircraft types and OFP layouts from time to time. Therefore, developers might want a way to automatically get an updated list of these options when integrating with SimBrief.

The following URL returns a JSON object listing the currently supported aircraft types and OFP layouts on SimBrief:

http://www.simbrief.com/api/inputs.list.json

This file is updated every 5 minutes.

An XML version of this data is now also available and can be found here:

http://www.simbrief.com/api/inputs.list.xml

Typical usage would be to download the file, parse the JSON/XML data, and use the resulting object to create your “type” and “planformat” options. This can also be done automatically every time your integration is loaded if need be.
