Hello,

Just wondering if I/we could obtain a list of the models used in the "Type" field?

I would like to send in some updates for logged sightings (for 400+ Red reg's) and would like to assist by providing them with the correct consistent type.

Thanks,

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Can you clarify please?

We have a list of all tracked aircraft types, available here: https://www.planelogger.com/Aircraft

beyond that, we don't really have a list, but we try to follow standardised naming conventions as defined by the manufacturers of each type.

Hello,

Yes, the list show the tracked types, but not the actual type used in the table type column. Here is a type extract from my sightings:

501 Citation-I/SP

525A CitationJet II

525B Citation-Jet III

550 Citation-II

560 Citation-XLS

690C Turbo Commander Jetprop 840

A319-112

A319-114

Challenger 300

Challenger-601-3R

CL-600

CL-601-3A

CRJ200ER

Falcon-2000LX

Gulfstream G550

Gulfstream-V

IAI-1124

I was hoping to be able to provide my updates in an easy consistent format for the updaters. Thus a list of the types used would be helpful.

Thanks,

Stephen

Ah right, gotcha. We don't have a list for that unfortunately, and there are quite a few inconsistencies in terms of naming in the database. We try and use standard notations where possible, and use a best guess when not obvious.

If you can send your updates through in any format, they would be greatly appreciated - the data editors will be able to translate the model/types based on what they have used in the past for those aircraft.
