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.
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.
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:
525A CitationJet II
525B Citation-Jet III
690C Turbo Commander Jetprop 840
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.
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.
