So I would like to know how many is interesting to bring Flightradar24.com to sailfish os like there is already android application and ios. Simple vote it if you are interested. Ideas about how I could implement things etc. are welcome!

I have also question which way I choose: c+ or python?

I have zero skills still, but that's about change. I believe I can create and success with this application.

Looks like flightradar has no API: https://forum.flightradar24.com/threads/24-API-access Their ToS also don't look friendly for third-party access to data. So, to implement native app you'll need to do some parsing/reverse-engineering with uncertain results.

There are alternatives though, like https://opensky-network.org/

I had a look at Flightradar24 last year, hoping to bring something like that to Sailfish, but came to the same conclusion as nogreatnamesleft.

I didn't know about opensky-network.org, it looks promising.
