Since developing my aircraft spotting hobby in my teen years I have been facinated with the question how to recognise an aircraft type. In all these years I noticed that there is no good website to help anyone interested with answering this question. Most websites just show you photos, maybe provide some key aircraft characteristics to look for and wish you good luck. Furthermore, most websites focus on airliners while there are so many more different aircraft types.
Therefore I decided to create my own website to fill this perceived omission on the internet. To stand out with respect to other websites you can select multiple characteristics to find the (basic) aircraft type designation. In addition, the website has a broad scope, ranging from private aircraft to jet airliners, and from military training aircraft to fighters.
For this website a lot of my own experience is used, gathered from following news about new aircraft types and experience an aviation magazine editor for more than twenty years. However, my knowledge is not unlimited so if you can help please do so to create the best aircraft recognition guide on the internet!
The main purpose of the Aircraft Recognition Guide website is to help identifying different aircraft types based on external characteristics. It is not meant to compare aircraft types to show which aircraft type or version is better than another, or which aircraft type complies with certain requirements.
