Hi there,
Today I went spotting,and I saw another spotter that had a airline fleet book.
I believe it said airline fleet analog and quick airline fleet reference.
I can't find it at amazon.I don't use that site so I don't know where to look.do you know where I can get the book?

Forget about that.
Can anyone recommend a nice book with the fleet of every airline in the world?

I know there is such a book out there: "JP Airline Fleets International". It is published annually; the 2004/2005 edition is now available.
It's available at www.buchairnet.ch/jp/jp04/jp2004_1e.htm.

"JP Airline Fleets International" is 700 pages long, details over 6300 airlines worldwide and their fleets (over 55,000 aircraft by type), their addresses, website URLs, and email addresses, as well as around 84 pictures. The book is organized by country, airline, and the aircraft of each fleet are listed by type and registry number.

Give it a try! I've looked at older editions before, and they're quite fascinating!

I hope this helps you!

I have a book called "Civil Aircraft markings 2003" and I believe that therer is one out for 2004 as mine is a little old! There is also a book called "Major Airlines of the World" but that is also a little old but I think there is a new one out of that two! I think I got them from WHsmiths, which is English but you maybe able to get one off eBay - Don't know!

The one that the link shows is the 2002 one which I also have but is very old!

Good luck!

An example of how they lay the aircraft regs is below,

As I said above in other post "and I believe that there is one out for 2004"

Hope this helps

The one I always use is Airlines, published by TAHS (The Aviation Hobby Shop). Its about 400 pages long and covers every country in the world with aircraft, and all current airlines in the following form (all of IB/JKK/FUA/AEA ect);

Registration - Type & Sub type - Construction number - Last Identity - Fleet number - Name/Other details.

Its a bit larger than A5 which means its handy to carry around whilst out spotting, even better its only about £10. I'm not sure if amazon stock it, but contact details for the publishers are below;

I'm afraid it doesn`t seem to have one, maybe because TAHS publish it themselves they prefer you to buy it direct. It might be worth trying your nearest transport book shop or hobbyshop first though, good luck.

I'll order it today!  Smile

SmithAir747,

"JP Airline Fleets International" also comes in a disc format for your computer that can be updated with changes. The book would become obsolete after a year or two. All you do is down load the newer version and (if you have enough paper) print it out. It is a far better deal. The book is EXPENSIVE!!!

Ahh. JP Airline Fleets is my favourite book. I by them directly at the publisher, BUCHairSHOP in Glattbrugg, Switzerland. I read this all the time, just for fun in the evenings and so.

MADtoCAE,

apologies if its too late to be of any use but I have just found the ISBN number for this book, it's printed on the back cover which had come loose and lost in the bottom of my camera bag Nuts

Its 0 - 907178 - 98 - 7, barcode 9780907178989.

I don`t know why but it always seems to fall off very easily, don`t know if anyone else has had this problem or if its just how it gets treated whilst out and about?

If you really want a complete guide take the JP!!!!

Like mentioned before it has almost every details of EACH plane.
It's like the aviation bible or something...

Just an example... (taken from JP 2000)
Ok, Iberia:

It has: adress/tel/fax/telex/email/sita/www adresses
Founding year (1927)
Personell: 22450
Head: Xabier de Irala Estevez
IATA: 075
ICAO Iberia

Some Information about Air Nostrum, Atlas air etc and other partners of iberia

And on every plane of the fleet: Reg#, Aircraft $Type, cn/fn, ex-reg# (if not new aircraft), manufacture date, delivery date, engines, mtow, configuration (Y, C, F), selcal, Name of the plane, remarks (leased by/to etc), specialties...

It has really EVERY however small and unimportant Airline of the world, with EVERY aircraft etc.

Further you have informations on airlines that went bankrupt during the last year, a couple of pictures, informatiosn about every country including, capital, language, population, area, head of state etc etc...

there is also a pc version instead of the book.

If you want my advice, take this book, it's worth it... Not only for real hardcore spotters, also for regular airline enthusiasts...

Greetings, Patrick
