Quoting SlamClick (Reply 7): Well it's not like anyone actually calls them by those numbers!
Never really thought of that. Most of us always call a C172 a C172 and not a Skyhawk. Yet I've never really heard anyone call a Piper Seneca a PA34-200T.
Quoting SlamClick (Reply 7): It is like the UH-1 helicopter. The Army's "popular" name for it was the "Iroquois." As if! Everyone who had ever watched the evening news for a whole generation knew it was a Huey!
And I always thought that the name "Iroquois" was just for our Canuck versions. Learn something new everyday!

I flew "hands-on" on a Cessna 172SP last summer, total of 3 flight hours, including 3 landings, and 1 IFR flight from OKB (Oceanside, CA) to FUL (Fullerton, CA). They've been logged as official hours, so that's pretty cool, but since then, I haven't been in the cockpit...

I took about 35 hours of lessons in C-152s a long time ago. I also have 1.6 hours of "Incentive Flight," back seat time in an F-15D, where i got to maneuver the jet twice - including a barrel roll (harder than it looks!).

I don't frequent this forum very much, but happened to see this thread. I wouldn't have revived it for my modest list of airplanes. However, the thread starter does say 'Aircraft', and gliders are aircraft so here goes. Since most people won't be familiar with glider names I'll only give details for the US and British types.
