The Aeroflight Aviation Enthusiasts Cloud is a central repository of aviation-related files that can be collectively worked on. Hosted on Google Drive, it allows multiple users to simultaneously add, correct and verify information on Google Sheets, Docs and Slides in a controlled manner.
The initial set-up phase of seeding the platform with a comprehensive set of files has now been completed.
The available files include:
246 civil aircraft registers covering all known registration prefixes
204 military aircraft registers covering all nations & territories with military or para-military operators
224 all-time inventory files covering military, government and public service operators by country and territory
The vast majority of these files are populated to a significant extent. Pascal Brugier has kindly allowed his files to serve as the civil aircraft register basis for some 80 countries, while data from the OpenSky Network and other sources has filled in many other areas.
Note that, unlike many online registers, these files include operator data, (within GDPR limits), so operator fleet lists can be obtained using the Sheets sort and filter functions.
The next stage is to complete the population of each file with data and to verify the information. To this end, you are warmly invited to browse these files and see what you contribute to, and how you can benefit from, the development of this invaluable aviation research tool.

P.S. You don’t need Google Chrome to use it, it works fine on Firefox and several other browsers.
