Identify by airplane characteristics








Below check the specific characteristics of the aircraft you are looking for. You can select multiple items for each characteristic. The results will be filtered automatically. 

A-90 Orlyonok

This strangely looking craft is a wing-in-ground-effect vehicle, or ekranoplane, that uses the air under the square wings as a cushion. Extra air is blown there by two turbofan engines in the nose. Forward speed is mainly achieved by a large turboprop engine on top of the vertical stabiliser. The horizontal stabilisers are highly swept and have a relatively large span.

This single engine turboprop aircraft is easy to recognise: it has a canard configuration with a pusher prop at the end of the fuselage. Also it has vertical stabilisers at the wingtips.

One of the first very light jets that appeared on the market is very easily recognised from every other bizjet type by its twin tail booms. These are unique for a bizjet. The engines are still attached to the rear fuselage though, so very standard.

Intended for the same market as the Cessna Caravan, Quest Kodiak and GippsAero Airvan the Explorer series has a similar appearance. Its main recognition points are the main gear retracting in a pod on the opposite side of the fuselage, and the tall vertical stabiliser with small dorsal fin.

These two aircraft are two generations of the same aircraft, that started as Aeritalia G222. It has the same configuration and size as the CN235/C295, but has a wider fuselage, and different and many cockpit windows. Moreover, it has only a few cabin windows! 

Straight wings with tip tanks and small, round air intakes in the wing roots characterise this jet training aircraft. It furthermore has a tandem cockpit with a bow frame near the front, except for the single seat variants of course. The back and front seats are at about the same level.

The small, nearly round air intakes in the wing roots are the main characteristic of this jet trainer aircraft. It resembles its predecessor however, the MB326, which has the same type of air intakes. To distinguish both aircraft look at the canopy: the one of the MB339 is larger and the rear seat is higher than the front seat.

Aermacchi MC200

The inverted gull wings are a key feature of the MC200, as is the shape of the nose: at the radial engine it has a constant diameter, after which the top of the fuselage slopes up to the canopy. The canopy sort of pops out, but the rear is closed. The main gear retracts inward in the wings.

Aero Boero AB-95/115/150/180

An Argentinian light aircraft similar to the Piper Super Cub, but with straight edges on the tail, a wider fuselage and tapered rear cabin window as characteristics.

The Delfin jet trainer has small D shaped air intakes in the wing roots and a low T-tail. It has a tandem canopy unlike similar aircraft like the MS760 Paris and Canadair Tutor. The exhaust of the single engine is at the end of the fuselage.
