What is the most mass-produced aircraft out there. (civil ofcourse) Is it the 737 or am I wrong?

Yes the 737 is the most popular airliner around. Almost 4000? have been built or ordered I believe

I heared somewhere that at any given moment, there are at least 600 737s in the air. Impressive.

it must be the Dakota DC-3s. Over 12000 (yup) are reported to have been produced,plus innumerable units made in Russia of a DC3 clone (Il-2?)

USSR DC-3 clones were Il-14, I believe.

IL-2 was a heavy attack fighter during WW2, with speed of around 450 km/h and armour to withstand some of ground fire.

This thread talks about civil aircrafts.
The vast majority of "DC-3s" were built as military C-47s. Many were later converted to civil airliner. But many thousand didn't survive the war or were worn out during the Berlin Airlift.
I don't know how many. But I doubt that more DC-3s than 737s have flown as civil airliners.
But they are probably pretty close.

Yes,It's the 737 with over 4000 orders so far .

BTW I guess that IndianBoy meant the Li-2 (Lisunov Li-2),not the Il-2.


Regards.

I can't remember the numerical designation of the Soviet DC-3's but they where built by Lisonov(Spl??) Not Illyushin(spl?).

Don't forget that the Japanese also built clones of the DC-3 during the way. It was codenamed the "Tabby". They also experimented with with a version of the aircraft that was constructed out of wood.


I figure the DC-3 is the correct answer but I am curious to wonder how the J-3/L-4/PA-18 production numbers would compare to the -3's

This is true of the 737, as far as airliners go, but the most produced aircraft of all time is a tie between the Bonanza and the 172, at around 37,000 each. (note:some were produced in other countries)

Of course, they are Li-2 (yes, Lisunov - "Lee-soo-nof"), and, probably, we need another font here  Smile... IL-12 and IL-14 were still piston-engined twins but quite different, with nose wheel.
