Where Can I Get Detailled Info On Aircraft?

Wed Oct 06, 2004 12:16 am

I am looking for some more detailled info like performance, equipment, technical info in general and so on for the following aircraft types:
- Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante
- BAe Jetstream 31
- Dornier DO228 and DO328
- Shorts 330/360
Unfortunately none of these aircraft is still in production - so it also dissappeared from the homepages of the manufacturers.

Or would it make sense to contact for instance Embraer or British Aerospace if they have some info material left?
With Dornier and Shorts I assume it would/will be a problem as they dont exist anymore.

Thanks your advise

Edit: Oh yes I forgot one - the DeHavilland Dash-7 - might I get something from "Bombardier" on this aircraft or???

Youve obviously not visited the aircraft information side of this website.

http://www.airliners.net/info/

After a quick glance, all the types you want are on there.

I have no answers for your specific aircraft however, depending on how much info you want and if you are willing to pay for it, you might run an internet search for something like, "aircraft tech data". There are web sites that sell old Flight Ops manuals and GenFam guides. They can be expensive! You could also try Ebay.

If you are in maintenance, or know someone who is, it may be possible to obtain outdated AMM's. It's a longshot, as the info is proprietary and is supposed to be desposed of when a new revision is out. But I have obtained several manuals this way.

Depending on what you want, you might want to stroll down to the local library and have a look at Jane's All the World's Aircraft. You would have to find the years that the aircraft were in production.
The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the manufacturer and impossible for the AME.

Thank you for your replies and suggestions

FinningleyMech - the information contained therein is good but to general.
320tech - oh yes Janes could be a good source too.
IFIXCF6 - I'll also search for that.

I adressed now my request to Embraer and to BAe direct and I was quite surprised that the VP Sales of BAe-Systems came back within 1 day with a very nice message reg J31 ...

Only problem left is now with Dornier and Shorts. Maybe I can get some info from Avcraft people at "Oberpfaffenhofen" in germany on the Do's.


The reason why I need pretty specific information is - we are doing a "feasability study" on setting up an airtransportcompany doing 3rd level traffic in the Alpine region of Europe with 20-30 seater aircraft ... it is just in theory but it is done in a way as it would be real ...

So gain thank you

Try Bombardier, the e-mail is CSC.TOC@services.bombardier.com this is where they deal with all out of production a/c (DHC-7, DHC-6, hopefully the Shorts as well).

In times past I've found aircraft manuals for sale in used book stores and antique/junk shops. If by "detailed" you mean actual usable numbers and the like, sites like Janes are not likely to be much help. They usually only have the type of numbers one finds in press releases.

Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

Without a doubt the best way that I have found info for older products is:
http://web.archive.org/

That have archives of web pages from 1996 on. It may not have much but I have been lucky in the past.
