This amazing book is a list of most of the civil aircraft flying, or under development, in the year 1999-2000  With an Introduction by author.


This is the thoroughly revised and up to date third edition of the only biennial reference book on the world's civil aircraft. It describes 388 individual aircraft types currently in service or under development worldwide and features a fleet inventory of the world's major airlines.

The newest edition of this bestselling biennial directory features a separate entry for every civil aircraft type currently in service -  nearly 400 in all. From canvas-bodied single-seat private aircraft that long ago ceased production to the fly-by-wire Boeing 777 jetliner, More...

if someone is flying it, it's in here. Each listing includes a color photograph of the aircraft, plus the details of its powerplant, performance, weight, dimensions, accommodations, production, development, and service history.

Like the preceding Civil Aircraft directories, the 1999/2000 edition follows the same simple but proven formula of two aircraft (including a colour photograph of each) per page. Each aircraft entry features details on the aircraft's country/ies of origin, role/s, powerplant/s, performance, weights, dimensions, seating and/or freight capacity, numbers built, ordered and in service where known, and a concise history of the aircraft's development and variants. Significant aircraft families are often broken into separate entries for major model variants - for example the 747 range is described over two pages and four entries.

Compared with the 1997/98 edition, the 1999/2000 gains 20 new aircraft listings - ranging from the Bombardier Continental Jet to the Airbus A318 - while the carried over aircraft entries have been brought up to date to reflect the latest developments, usually with a new photograph. Some entries have been so heavily revised that they have effectively been re-written.

Aircraft covered range from airliners to light aircraft, to helicopters, to corporate jets and everything in between.

This book is the companion to the International Directory of Military Aircraft, by the same author.


The following is the entry for 737-100 and -200, and is representative of the other entries in the book:

Boeing 737-100 & -200 Country of origin: United States of America Type: Short range narrowbody airliner Powerplants: 737-100 Two 62.3kN (14,000lb) Pratt & Whitney JT8D-7 turbofans. 737-200 Two 64.5kN (14,500lb) JT8D-9As, or two 68.9kN (15,500lb) JT8D-15s, or two 71.2kN (16,000lb) JT8D-17s, or two 77.4kN (17,400lb) JT8D-17Rs with automatic reverse thrust.

Range with 115 passengers and reserves between 3520km (1900nm) and 4260km (2300nm) depending on weight options and engines. Weights: 737-100 Empty 25,878kg (57,000lb), max takeoff 49,940kg (110,000lb). 737-200 Operating empty 27,448kg (60,600lb), max takeoff 52,390kg (115,500lb), or optionally 58,740kg (129,500lb). Dimensions: 737-100 Wing span 28.35m (93ft 0in), length 28.67m (94ft 0in), height 11.29m (37ft 0in). Wing area 91.1m2 (980sq ft). 737-200 Same except for length 30.53m (100ft 2in). Capacity: Flightcrew of two. 737-100 Typical single class seating for 100. 737-200 Typical single class seating for 115, max seating for 130 at 74cm (29in) pitch. 737-200C & QC payload 15,545kg (34,270lb), consisting of pallets or containers. Production: 1144 737-100s and 200s built, comprising 30 -100s and 1114 -200s, including various military models. Approximately 17 -100s and 925 737-200s remained in service in late 1998. Around 30 are used as corporate transports. History: The 737-100 and -200 are the first generation production models of the worlds most successful jet airliner family. The 737 was conceived as a short range small capacity airliner to round out the Boeing jet airliner family beneath the 727, 720 and 707. Announced in February 1965, the 737 was originally envisioned as a 60 to 85 seater, although following consultation with launch customer Lufthansa, a 100 seat design was settled upon. Design features included two underwing mounted turbofans and 60% structural and systems commonality with the 727, including the same fuselage cross section. The 737-100 made its first flight on April 9 1967 and entered service in February 1968. By this time however development of the larger capacity 1.93m (6ft 4in) stretched 737-200 was well advanced, and the first 737-200 flew for the first time on August 8 1967. Developments of the -200 include the -200C convertible and quick change -200QC, while an unprepared airfield kit was also offered. The definitive Advanced 737-200 appeared in 1971, featuring minor aerodynamic refinements and other improvements. Sales of the 737-200 far exceeded that of the shorter -100 and the 737-200 remained in production until 1988, by which time it had been superseded by the improved 737-300.

REVIEWS ........

The definitive guide of commercial airplanes,    ………..   The 1999/2000 edition of this book is even better than the 1997/1998 edition. Great pictures, explinations and very well laid out to make it easy to look through.

A very good encyclopedia of all airplanes +major airlines.      …………  Hi, this is 99% very good.

The best civil aviation reference available!   ………..  Others have described The International Directory of Civil Aircraft as the "bible" of civil aviation references, and I would heartily agree. Each type of aircraft referenced has an excellent color photo, performance information that breaks the numbers down into metric and standard (making it a truly international reference guide), and a great synopsis of each aircraft type's history. All of this makes IDOCA a great guide for both aviation professionals and enthusiasts, and I'm distressed to see the 2003/2004 edition listed as "out of print" here on Amazon. One of this guides biggest benefits is its currency (a new edition every two years), and I sincerely hope that Mr. Frawely will continue making this excellent reference. I can't wait to purchase a 2005/2006 IDOCA edition!

Top-Notch aviation reference!,   …………… This book is truly fascinating. I had bought the 1997-1998 edition back in late 1997 because it just stood out from all the other books which I saw. It was just so comprehensive, everything that any aviation enthusiast could want. Without any delay I snapped up this edition when it became available. I find it readable and never boring, even if I pick it up to review something small. An excellent book.

The best book on civil aircraft!, ……   I bought this book for the first time and I have never seen a book on aircraft that was so detailed. I love aviation and if you love aviation and civil aircraft, this is the book for you.

The Civil Aircraft Bible!  ……..  This is easily the best civil aircraft book in the world, it lists specifications and tells the history of the model, from a Cessna 152 to the Boeing 777 they are here! Great book and a must have for all aviation enthusiasts!

Very very comprehensive and respected reference!

Marvellous Reading!
