This site documents all the civil aircraft that flew during the period of aviation between the two world wars.

I have attempted to compile a comprehensive list of aircraft registrations by country, and aircraft production by manufacturer, for this period. Inevitably this information is incomplete and contains errors due to the lack of records and the amount of data I have had to compile. The site should therefore be considered very much as work in progress, and as a starting point for research into specific types.

I hope that you will contact me with corrections and additions, in order to make this a valuable reference resource.
