You need to define the et_flights parameter as of type SFLIGHT. As per method defined, you have this type as structure type and also declare transparent table SFLIGHT at the same time.
You should use an already available dictionary table type with row structure of SFLIGHT for et_flight.
You should declare et_flights inside the method in class definition as a private member or as a return value of the method.
