There is exactly one aircraft listed that had it's debut in the 1980s.

Since it appears that the question is favorite aircraft ridden in the 1980s, I vote for the 5-AT that I rode on in 1986.

I've a strange interest in the 735. Somehow it represents efficient 80's engineering, to me.
This is the time. And this is the record of the time.
