We have launched another massive round of enhancements to our Aircraft module today. Our database now includes engine details for the 38,114 aircraft we currently track in our database with over 1,000 aircraft status updates every month.

In addition, we have also introduced new search options allowing aircraft to be searched by year built (one or multiple years), by aircraft status and by database update period and type.

The new features (engine details and search options) are available exclusively to ch-aviation subscribers and can be accessed from the Aircraft module search form:

You can now search aircraft by Year Built period (i.e. all A380-800s built in 2011):

Aircraft can also be searched by Engines. You can either search by engine manufacturer (by selecting one from the Manufacturer dropdown list) OR also select a specific Engine type (i.e. CF34-10E). In the Aircraft Search results, you can now also select Engine Details as a Supplementary Information field (in addition to Former Operator(s) and Date Built).

You can click on an engine type in the Aircraft Search results to display Engine Manufacturer details with a list of all Engine Types currently tracked in the ch-aviation database:

From the Engine Manufacturer detail page, you may get back to Aircraft Search results by clicking on any of the Equipped Aircraft total numbers by Engine Type.

To search one of the over 38,000 aircraft tracked in the ch-aviation database by Aircraft Status, select a Status (Active, Inactive or Scrapped/Written Off) or a combination of Status and more detailed Substatus (i.e. all ATR 42-500s that are currently in storage):

ch-aviation can now track last database updates and additions even better with an option to specify which aircraft updates should be displayed in search results. Results can now be filtered by Update Period and Update Type (Additions, Updates or both) (i.e. Updates and Additions for carriers in Afghanistan during the last 90 days):

We have now added a new aircraft search option for you if you are just looking for an aircraft by registration, airline or aircraft type quickly giving you access to aircraft details even quicker than before.

Then just click on the search button and your results will display immediately.

Dear ch-aviation visitors and friends,

We would like to welcome you to our new site and help you making you feel at home with our new look and feel as well as a lot of new and exciting features and functions. We have completely revamped ch-aviation as an airline knowledge base and have adjusted our strategy behind each of the modules based on that.

As you start exploring the site, we have also provided some additional help by adding some assistance in the FAQ sections you will find to be helpful for each of the six modules (News, Aircraft, Airlines, Airports, Routes and Schedules). You will find the links in the upper right hand corner of your screens.

We have revised our News strategy and will now provide several weekly news updates covering global airline industry developments with a focus on strategic network and fleet developments, airline start-ups and bankruptcies as well as mergers, acquisitions and strategic partnerships. The news are now also available in a weekly ch-aviation Newsletter as well as through our new RSS feed.

There will also be a Weekly Airline Route Network Update tracking network changes of over 700 airlines worldwide and available to our ch-aviation pro users both online and in the weekly newsletter.

You can actively get involved and discuss, comment, correct or share our news and blog entries using the Disqus discussion plug-in we have added on the site.

In our Aircraft module you are now able to make use of a wide range of new search options to get access to our extensive fleet list and aircraft database with over 35.000 aircraft currently being tracked. Additional information is available in Aircraft Data profiles including operator statistics and a variety of smart drilldown options.

You still can enjoy access to the most up to date Airline database tracking the status of over 6.000 airlines. We now give you immediate access to an airline’s route network, subsidiary, parent, alliance and regional partnership information as well as direct links to background information allowing you to do further research on the site yourself.

We have also built up a database of over 5.500 of the most relevant Airports worldwide. Each of the airport profiles includes geographical information and maps, access to the timetable and airlines based there or serving the airport. Statistics are also available with drilldowns to additional details such as the aircraft currently stored at a specific location.

In cooperation with Innovata LLC we are now able to offer you complete access to Routes and Schedules of the vast majority of the scheduled airlines in our database with extensive search and filter options and drilldowns from and to all of the other modules available on the all new ch-aviation.

With the relaunch and repositioning of the site and the move of some of our team members to full time ch-aviation editors, we have also revised our approach to how we share information on the site and now offer three different access levels. We will continue to make certain limited information free of charge and offer two subscription types, ch-aviation plus and ch-aviation pro, specifically designed to meet the needs of both airline industry professionals and aviation enthusiasts. We would like to invite all of you that have been subscribing to our newsletter for years to get an exclusive view of the full functionality of the new ch-aviation and have made available a 14 day trial offer that you can find here (where you can also review the plus and pro subscription benefits in more detail).

Start exploring and let us know what you think. We would like to incorporate your feedback in our plans and also look forward to providing you with further new surprises over the next coming months.

Now let’s get started here: www.ch-aviation.ch

On behalf of all of us at ch-aviation, welcome aboard!
