Is there a list of the codes used for the different aircraft types published anywhere?
Does flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/ help? (found under the option Live Tracking - Aircraft type)
The list given above will only show currently active aircraft. For a complete list of the codes please see FAA publication JO 7340.2A “Contractions”. You can also download it as a PDF.
Chapter 5 is what you want.
As indicated by the publication’s name, you will also get other contractions used by the FAA.
Other FAA publications are available at faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/
Thanks for that, but what I’m looking for is a table which enables me to find out what four-letter code is being used for a certain aircraft type. For example, I recently uploaded a photograph of Beagle B206 Bassett N181WW and it took a lot of searching before I found the correct code for this type to be BASS.
Thanks Damiross, that’s just what I’m after. You’re reply crossed with my previous one.
