Documenting the Production List, Test & Delivery Flight Activity of the Airbus Family
Every aircraft has its own profile, with beautiful full-width cover Photos and all the information about that particular aircraft, including what aircraft it is, which Airline it belongs to, what engines its using, how old it is and its entire Flight Activity History up to Delivery. Only Aircrafts up to Delivery will be tracked. There are plenty of other great sites that cover the lifetime of Aircrafts after Delivery.
Everything is searchable in this project. From aircraft information such as MSN Construction number, Aircraft Type, Airline to Flight details such as Callsign, Hex Code and Date & Time. As soon as a new aircraft or flight information is added into the project its immediately searchable. To make it easier the search has been grouped into Airbus Family. This way you can narrow down to excatly what you are looking for and play to your hearts content.
A customized and in-depth statistics section gives an overview of all Airbus Family aircrafts. Everything from First Flights, to Total Flights, to Deliveries. One can even customize the Start & End Date for the Analytics Data. There are also unique statistical aspects that will help you identify Delivery Trends for each Airbus Family.
I can't keep up with people wanting me to let them know when certain Aircrafts get delivered to certain Airlines. Thats why I created a feature for Registered users where they can add Aircrafts or Airlines to their Alert Lists and get notified whenever a new Flight Activity has triggered a condition that the user specifies. Triggers include Taxi/RTO, Test Flights, Delivery as well as Airbus Family and much more.
Whether on the ground spotting or running their own project, this project wouldn't be possible without the amazing help of the local aviation community.
A huge thank you go to our amazing aviation friends from around the world. Some of them keep me up-to-date on a daily basis, on what's going on with test & delivery flights on any of the Airbus fields. Thank you so much for all the contributors and other friends that also have amazing sites:
Its very important for me to be transparent on how the images are being use on the site and where they are coming from. ALL image url's are linked to their original photo location and are copyrighted to their respective photographers. For the most part this site uses Flickr for the photos. A link to the original Flickr URL is given and with the Flickr API I get the photo URL and the Flickr username. I definitely value the photographers effort to take their amazing photos and none of the photos are stored on this site. Youtube embeds are also occasionally used on the site to give you a glimpse of how aircrafts look like on video, again linked to their original Youtube location.
A very special mention goes out to Scott of Norebbo for his amazing work on the Airbus Family illustrations that are being shown on the site when no aircraft pictures are present.
I want to give a special Thank You! to the photographers who put the effort to get out there in the most craziest weather conditions to shoot the Aircrafts in action. Their contributions really help give this project much more authenticity. Some of the most common photographers are featured below:
