Where can I find an overview of as many aircraft models as possible, preferably commercial passenger and cargo aircrafts?

I'm interested in this data, or as much data as possible:

  • Model name (ex: Boeing 747-400)
  • Manufactured from/to
  • Possible seating/class configurations
  • Cruising speed and max speed
  • Fuel capacity
  • Fuel consumption per ... (any unit)
  • Minimum takeoff distance
  • Minimum landing distance


Thanks in advance!


Being unable to find the data I requested myself, I created a Google Docs Spreadsheet for anyone to view which holds most of the data I'm interested in for a "handful" of planes. If you are interested in adding to the spreadsheet, or help me keep the data updated, feel free to contact me.

It currently contains about 150 items, with the following properties:

  • Type
  • Name
  • PassengerCapacity
  • Range
  • MaxSpeed
  • FuelEconomy
  • FuelCapacity
  • MaxPayload
  • MinLandingDistance
  • MaxTakeoffDistance
  • Would you mind adding license information? For instance add "Public domain" just after the "metric units" header. Cheers! Jul 23 '15 at 9:43
  • Of course. Anyone can steal this information; it only took me a day to collect. :)

This site has specs for about 400 commercial aircraft. But you will have to parse each spec manually. No data dump that I saw


The data can not really be called open though: "The information in this database is copyright protected and may not be copied or used in any way without proper permission."
