Identify by aircraft 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. 

The Bandeirante commuter plane has quite typical cockpit windows, rectangular but slightly rounded cabin windows and a narrow vertical stabiliser as key features, although none of these really stand out. 

There are no prop aircraft with low wings and a T-tail as big as the Embraer Brasilia. Also noteworthy are the somewhat 's-shaped' engine nacelles. The cockpit windows are the same as on the Embraer 145 regional jet family, logical because the Brasilia formed the basis for this jet.

This aircraft is similar in size as the Canadair Regional Jet 100/200, but has a smaller fuselage diameter and engines with a single exhaust. The front section, including cockpit, is the same as the Brasilia. The tail cone has a typical exhaust pipe for the APU.

This is a family of 70-110 seat aircraft. When considering the Embraer 170/175 the Sukhoi Super Jet is the only similar aircraft in this category, but with engine nacelles with a single exhaust. The larger 190/195 could be confused with the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), but the Embraer can be recognised by its Boeing 787 like nose. The MRJ clearly has a more pointy nose. The comparable CSeries has a wider fuselage and a squared off tailcone.

Also a CitationJet look-a-like, from which it can be distinguished by its more pointy, streamlined nose, smaller cockpit windows and large dorsal fin. Bears a large resemblance with the EMB505, but has a straight wing and fewer cabin windows.

The Phenom 300 is a slightly larger version of the Phenom 100, with a swept wing. It looks most like a Learjet 31/45, with its pointy nose, but the Phenom 300 can best be recognised by the horizontal stabiliser that appears to be tilted forward.

These are nearly identical aircraft apart from the size, that resemble the Raytheon Hawker 4000 and Cessna Citation Longitude. There is one easy feature to keep them apart: the horizontal stabiliser that appears to be tilted forward, like on the Phenom 300.

The two main recognition points on the C-390 are the cockpit windows resembling those of the CN235/C295 (triangular last window), and the MD-90-like engine nacelles. For the rest it is similar to the Kawasaki C-1.

The development aircraft for the eventual EMB110 Bandeirante has the same configuration, but still looks quite different thanks to the round cabin windows, and different cockpit windows and engine nacelles.

The Xingu is similar in appearance to especially the Beech F90 as it is about the same size, has a T-tail, low wing and two turboprops in the wing. However, cockpit and cabin windows are different and the main gears each have a single wheel compared with two on the Beech.
