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. 

Douglas X-3 Stiletto

This sleek research aircraft has small trapezoidal wings (like on the F-104). The nose is very long and pointed. The two engines have tilted, semi circular air intakes at the side of the fuselage, and exhausts below the rear fuselage.

Eclipse 400

The Eclipse 400 is similar in appearance as the Cirrus Vision Jet. The engine nacelle has a round intake and is placed on a pylon. Furthermore it has one cabin window and one cockpit side window, and no ventral fins. (photo: D. Miller/WikiMedia)

The Eclipse 500 and derivatives are one of the smallest aircraft with two jet engines and a T-tail. Note the comparatively small engines, small tip tanks and wingshaped fuselage, i.e. widest at the cockpit and then tapering towards the tail.

El Gavilán EL-1

This single piston powered utility aircraft developed in Colombia looks similar to the GippsAero GA-8 Airvan and Explorer 350R, but more "box like". It can best be recognised by its vertical tail: the trailing edge is a bit swept forward.

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 70-140 seat aircraft, so of significantly different lengths. The Embraer can be recognised by its Boeing 787 like nose with four curved cockpit windows. The engine nacelles have separate core and fan exhausts. Additionally, the E-Jet family has a pointed tail cone, and either tall winglets or raked wing tips.

A CitationJet look-a-like, from which it can be distinguished by its more pointed, streamlined nose, smaller cockpit windows, blunt tail cone and large dorsal fin. Bears a large resemblance with the EMB505, but has straight wings without winglets, and fewer cabin windows.

The Phenom 300 is a slightly larger version of the Phenom 100, with swept wings and winglets. It looks most like a Learjet 31/45, with its pointed nose, but the Phenom 300 can best be recognised by the horizontal stabiliser that appears to be tilted forward, and single wheel main landing gear.
