The SimBrief API was created for developers who wish to include SimBrief flight planning features on their website.

When a flight plan is generated using the API, it returns an XML data file containing nearly every internal SimBrief variable which was used in the process. This provides the utmost in flexibility; developers seeking a quick and easy solution might choose to simply display the OFP text and/or PDF file on their VA’s dispatch page, while others may want to create an entire custom dispatch system along with a custom OFP layout. Because of the wide range of variables this API returns, there are many possibilities!

A demo of the API can be viewed here. Please pay no attention to the page style (or lack thereof), it is merely meant to illustrate how the popup window works and what kind of information is available afterwards in the resulting XML file. It should be noted that the PHP class can also provide the data as a standard PHP array and as a JSON object.
