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
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.

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. Photo caption: A hushkit equipped 737-200

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!
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!
