Aircraft Compare was started in 2009. It began as a database of airplanes and helicopters. Users could create an account, login and vote on their favorite aircraft, as well as compare different kinds of aircraft.
The website grew popular due to the large amount of technical data and photographs of many aircraft. Aircraft Compare has also been publishing aviation related news since 2009.
The website underwent a major overhaul in 2019. After the technical migration was completed, the massive challenge of updating all the existing aircraft and other content of the website started.
In addition, a start was made with publishing new materials, in the form of aircraft detail pages and aviation related educational content.
The aircraft pages aim to be the most complete resource for any kind of aircraft. We list the technical specifications, photo gallery, video gallery, and a background story.
Aircraft Compare works together with dozens of aircraft spotters around the world to create a ‘tribute’ page for all the wonderful aircraft our industrial age has produced.
The Aircraft Compare blog features well written articles by experts from all facets of the aviation industry. We aim to answer aviation related queries in a way that is understandable to the lay person.
Our target audience are aviation enthusiasts, aircraft spotters, aspiring pilots, private pilots, commercial pilots, and anyone else with an aviation related question to ask.
