Fixed-wing aircraft generally use an internal-combustion engine in the form of a piston engine(with a propeller) or a turbine engine (jet or turboprop), to provide thrust that moves the craft forward through the air.
In the case of aerodynamic lift, the aircraft is kept in the air because of aerodynamics, usually by means of wings, or rotors, of some kind.
The major distinction in aircraft usage is between military aviation, which includes all uses of airplane for military purposes (such as combat, patrolling, search and rescue, reconnaissance, transport, and training), and civil aviation, which includes all uses of airplanes for non-military purposes.

Examples of lighter-than-air aircraft include non-steerable balloons, such as hot air balloons and gas balloons, and airships (sometimes called dirigible balloons), such as blimps (which have a non-rigid construction) and rigid airships, which have a rigid frame.
In the case of aerodynamic lift, the aircraft is kept in the air because of aerodynamics, usually by means of wings of some kind.
The use of transport aircraft enabled the rapid movement of supplies, ammunition, cargo, troops and also casualty evacuation; transport aircraft were also used to drop paratroopers.

This list of aircraft is sorted alphabetically, beginning with the name of the manufacturer (or, in certain cases, designer).
It is an inclusive list rather than an exclusive one, meaning that where an aircraft is known under multiple names, designations, or manufacturers, each of these is listed.
This list does not generally include variants or subtypes of the aircraft themselves (although there is considerable difference among various manufacturers and designation systems as to what constitutes a new aircraft as opposed to a variant of an existing type).

 Freight aircraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Freight aircraft may be operated by civil airlines, by private individuals or by the armed forces of individual countries.
They are often adapted from aircraft originally designed for passenger use, perhaps when the aircraft type is considered to have become uncompetitive in passenger airline service.
Most air freight is however carried in the holds of passenger aircraft.

 Aero Ae 50 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Aero Ae 50 was a prototype propeller-driven military reconnaissance aircraft built in Czechoslovakia.
Designed with the role in mind, the Ae 50 was a high-wing monoplane of unusual design, with a fuselage that terminated abruptly immediately aft of the crew cabin, leaving the tailplane to be mounted on a single boom attached to the wing.
Another unusual feature was that it incorporated a towing point to allow it to be towed by another, longer-range aircraft to enable it to be transported to a combat zone outside of its own range without having to stop and refuel.

One of these was the famous Mikoyan MiG-21 short-range interceptor and fighter aircraft.
Powered by a single jet and designed on a simple airframe, these fighters were inexpensive, but fast and manueverable, suiting the strategy of forming large quantities of 'people's fighters' to overcome technological advantages of Western aircraft.
In most other air forces using the aircraft, they serve as general purpose fighters, often in little more than a ceremonial role, assuaging their national ego.

 List of aircraft manufacturers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is a list of aircraft manufacturers sorted alphabetically by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)/common name.
It contains the ICAO/common name, manufacturers name(s), country and other data, with the known years of operation in parenthesis.
It should be noted that having an ICAO name does not mean that a manufacturer is still in operation today, just that some of the aircraft produced by that manufacturer are still flying.

The Ercoupe is a low wing monoplane first manufactured by the ERCO aircraft company shortly before the second World War.
The Aircraft Type Certificate for the Ercoupe passed from ERCO to Forney, then to the city of Carlsbad New Mexico, then to Alon (which manufactured the aircraft as the Aircoupe), and to Mooney and finally rests with Univair Aricraft Corporation of Colorado.
Mooney was the last company to actively manufacture the aircraft, as Univair only supplies parts and support.
