Waiting for your plane to arrive at the gate? Saw a sweet looking plane and want to find out more about it? Heard a callsign while flying or plane spotting but didn't catch the aircraft type?*
With Aus Aircraft search and one piece of information - the registration (VH-xxx), you can find out a little more about the plane you were just on or saw fly past. Lookup the aircraft's type, year of manufacture, engine information and even the operator.
AusAircraft contains a database of all general aviation (GA) and regular public transport (RTP)/airline aircraft registered in Australia using the VH-xxx mark. You can find this mark on the tail of most aircraft and sometimes on the underside of the wings. Enter the three characters after the VH and be on your way to searching the AusAircraft database.
The database is updated daily however it can still take time for newly registered aircraft to appear.
Presented in a quick and easy to read way you can be sure that you've got the information before you've forgotten those three letters. With recent searches it's easy to bring an aircraft's details back up if you do forget these details.
Aus Aircraft is a great compliment to plane tracking and flight radar apps that use ADS-B for realtime tracking.
*Remember: Aviate, Navigate, Communicate. Don't use our App whilst in control of an aircraft.
