Aircraft Recognition - a simple guide to identifying aeroplanes

With this app you can identify over 100 commercial jet airplanes. You can filter by features of the aeroplane, such as the number of engines or wing position. You can see high resolution images of each aircraft and a brief description with technical information such as variants, engines etc.

Use this app for:
- Plane spotting
- Aircraft spotting
- Aircraft identification
- Airplane information

At the moment the app only has commercial jet aircraft. I have plans to increase the number and variety of aircraft listed in the app. If you have any suggestions please feel free to get in touch.

The app is open source, you can find the code here - http://github.com/edwardharks/Aircraft-Recognition
