According to CASA Australia's Manual of Standards Part 139 - Aerodromes, they have a breif listing of aircraft along with their rating (Ie 1B, 2A, 4C etc) as well as their respective ARFL (Aeroplane Reference Field Length), wingspan, OMGWS (?), Length, MTOW and Tyre Pressure. Most of these I can get of the relevant Manufacturer sites, but I am happy with ARFL, wingspan and Outer main gear span as these are the main factors to calculate a Aerodrome reference code (ARC).

Has anyone have a comprehensive list of all aircraft with at least ARFL, Wingspan, Outer Main Gear Span or know where I can find them? pray 

I need this for my employment for our rural airport. It would be of great appreciation if someone on this forum would give us a helping hand.



Also please see my posting on General aviation in regards to this for one reference I have already got on this subject.

For Boeing and Douglas/McDonnell-Douglas types, the following section in the Boeing website has all of that information and detailed aircraft diagrams and dimensions etc. Click on the aircraft type and the rest is fairly self-explanatory.

I replied to your posting in the Civil Aviation forum with a link to another 2-page Boeing summary document with the airport reference codes and other data. If you haven't seen that reply, here's that link:

There may be simiilar information somewhere in the Airbus website but I haven't looked. I don't find their website very user-friendly.

Thank you so very much with your links. They will come in handy.

The trouble that i think I might have is in finding the relevant details for some of the smaller and obscure planes that may be on the listings. In this I refer to your Beech's, Cessna's and other common and not so common aircraft.

For anyone else who wishes to provide some information, please do so, and for your interest, it is pertaining to the safe operation and management of the west Sale Aerodrome, Victoria, Australia (YWSL).

Thanks again

Advisory Circular 150/5300-13 Appendices 12 and 13 contain the ARC's and aircraft data. It can be searched here: Aircraft Characteristics Database
