Hi every body

I have to do a work where I need to know the number of airliners that fly in the united states.

For many other countries I found some statistics about the amount of airliner aircraft.

Perhaps some of you have some statistical handbooks with new figures or do know a good homepage to find the informations. At this point it is important to define the word airliner. What is an airliner? For me it is an aircraft that flies for a company that is registered in an airline register (no business aviation company). A Swearingen Metro is an airliner in my eyes.

I would be relieved if somebody could help me.

Best regards,

Adrian

Your best bet is running all the US airlines through http://www.airfleets.net which should give you a pretty accurate fleet number sheet for each
Except for NWA, where none of the DC9s are listed for some reason

Hey

Thank you for the link, interesting database.

But unfortunately not helpful for me. I had no chance to find out how many active airliners are flying in the States...

The thing that makes it impossible is that this database also shows the stored aircraft that will never ever fly as well as the former american registered planes that are now flying in other countries.

I am still looking for a good database or other information source.

Thanks guys

Below the airline search, select 'Civil Aircraft Register' and select the USA.
I'm sure there is a way of selecting ONLY active a/c
Hope this helps
Thanks

A bit bored between flights today, so I checked the majors' websites and got these numbers (oldest being from last years annual reports). Probably add a couple thousand I'm guessing from all the regional carriers, scheduled charter operators and cargo companies.

WN - 467
AA - 683
AX - 298
UA - 460
B6 - 103
NW - 400
US - 358
USX - 352
CO - 356
AS - 181
FL - 107
DL - 638
Total: 4403



United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
