Hi everybody!

Over the past years I have been 'collecting' a whole bunch of nice aviation tools on the internet, mostly to look up data on flights I have taken in the past for my logbook. There is a bunch of goodies out there, and unfortunately many of them are unknown to many people.

Let us all share our favourite most-useful aviation sites!

PLEASE: Only browser-based applications/sites, no programs.
Also PLEASE: only free of charge, no services that you have to pay for.
Also PLEASE: give a direct link to the part of the site where the tool is, not just the main page!
Also PLEASE: add a little description!

Here are mine:

1) Great Circle Mapper
Graphically displays routes between any two or more airports, along with distance, etops and several other useful information.
http://gc.kls2.com/

2) BTS Database
Research flights back until 1995, including exact wheels-off and -on times, tail numbers, etc. Use the links in the bottom (Detailed Statistics)
http://www.bts.gov/programs/airline_information/airline_ontime_statistics/

3) Time Zone Converter
Like the name says, convert any time in any timezone to any other timezone.
http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

4) Airline Callsigns
The most comprehensive I could find so far...
http://www.airodyssey.net/reference/callsigns.html

5) Airport Codes
Fully searchable. Make sure to scroll down, the stuff in the top is advertising.
http://www.mapping.com/airportcodes.html

6) Aircraft Registration Prefixes
A) Current: http://www.helis.com/howflies/aviacode.php
B) Historic: http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk/regprefixhis.asp
C) Rules: http://www.ivao.org/db/prefix/home.htm

7) Live and Past Traffic on select USA airports
Very neat tool, you can research back to 2004 and see exact movements at any hour/minute. Must be a huge data inventory...
http://www.passur.com/sites.htm

8) N- Number research
Research any plane registered in the US.
http://162.58.35.241/acdatabase/nnum_inquiry.asp

9) Airline Callsigns
http://www.airodyssey.net/reference/callsigns.html

10) Information on any US airport
http://www.airnav.com/airports/

11) Airfleets
Research airline fleets. Unfortunately there are lots of annoying pop-ups, and it only supports certain airplane types.

Airline, airport, location codes, Boeing codes, callsigns, country codes, links to worldwide civil aircraft regs:
http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk/

For flight planning, finding the cheapest dates between now and a month of your choice:
http://www.travelocity.co.uk/

There is a site somewhere which lists all the movements of BA and some other airlines at Heathrow. Useful for finding the tail reg of a specfic flight on a specific date. Can I find it? No! If somebody can point me to it I would be grateful...

I think this is the website you mean Geoffm http://www.lhr-lgw.co.uk/ List of most LHR and LGW movements.

Others which I find useful;

http://www.multimap.com/ Great for aerial photographs of UK airfields.

http://www.caa.co.uk/srg/aircraft_register/ginfo/default.asp Database of all UK registered aircraft with excellent search facility.

http://www.jethros.i12.com/FLEETS/INDEX.htm Up to date fleets for all UK and Ireland airlines.

http://www.airline-network.co.uk/ Great site for cheap flights on 'proper' airlines Big grin

Hope these help someone,
