Aircraft Data Index Base
       This page was most recently updated   Monday, December 01, 2008

Started in 1975, AeroKnow's Aircraft Data Index (ADI) lists data in abbreviated form so that supporters may learn where to go for more information about airplanes and related subjects. Listed here are resources within the AeroKnow collection. Copies of these references may be obtained in return for payment of copy costs, postage and a service charge based on the amount of time taken to respond to the data. As a hobbyist, I've donated hundreds of hours of my time responding to information requests, been gently cajoled by my friend Leo Opdycke and others for not taking my time more seriously, and following a disappointing interface with a B-45 enthusiast, decided to get serious.

Usually, it takes less than an half an hour to pull one or two articles, scan them and email them to the requestor.

Next time a request comes in, I obtain what's needed and scan it as .jpg files. I let the requestor know the files are ready to send, that I invested, say a half an hour, and if he agrees to generate a check or money order or materials I can use worth $10 for my time, I will email the files for no charge. I believe this solves the cost problem: hourly rate $20 per hour and $10 for every half an hour or portion of a half an hour. If it takes me 1:15, I'll round the chage off to an hour billed.

         If you have information not listed in the ADIF available for donation or trade, please e-mail the webmaster. writer@eosinc.com

         STATUS UPDATE: Thanks to Martin Weinert who alerted me to many broken links in early October! I have not only repaired those links; I have added several more and made consistent the format in which they are presented. The project is far from complete. About 99 percent of the indexes presented are compiled from notecards produced in the 1980s, first by examining every page in every magazine and then transcribing data from the extensive magazine index to the ADI, which was also notecard based at the time.
     The next phase of the ADI isvolves pulling every file for every aircraft and manufacturer and addung those many thousands of additional references in the ADI. When that is done, I will check all intact magazines acquired since completing that distant first phase of ADI development, record new references on to note cards for the Magazine Index (easier to do than opening, scrolling and closing files on the computer) and then transcribing that new information into the ADI presented here at AeroKnow.
    Though such work will never be complete as long as new magazines are added to the collection, AeroKnow will then focus on aviation people. Extensive files of biographies, memoirs and other articles were compiled during phase one, and thousands of loose articles, culled from countless publications have been added to the People files over the years. Your support ensures this work will continue and that you and other aviation enhusiasts all over the planet will benefit from this effort.


        If you are a publisher or a friend (or both) and would like to support this effort by donating yearly subscriptions of your aviation-related periodical, thus reducing our expenses and increasing our capacity to serve, please contact AeroKnow. If you have aviation magazines which are surplus to your needs, which you would like to donate to an organization which will make the most of them by either indexing them and then cross indexing them into the ADIF, contact  writer@eosinc.com
