My Aircraft List

While I love travel, love visiting new paces, and love the challenge of getting places in first class, I am also a huge aviation nerd. My degree is in Aerospace Engineering, I've designed airplanes and helicopters.

Part of the fun of traveling is getting there as long as you can do it comfortably. The airplane nerd in me wants to do so on every aircraft type possible, so here is my current list of aircraft that I have been privileged to fly on.


  • 717
  • 727
  • 737
  • 757
  • 767
  • 777


  • A320
  • A330
  • A380


Then of course there is the list of aircraft I still want to fly on


  • 747
  • 787


  • A340
  • A350


I've been attempting to plan my travel to get me on board any number of these aircraft. As you may already know, my trip to Beuns Aires will grab me a place on a 787 in business class. My flight to Cape Town sometime next year should land me economy on an A350, and there is the possibility of flying a 747 return from Cape Town. 

I haven't gone as far as to keep track of each planes variant type yet, but that may very well come soon. 

Beyond Airbus and Being, there are many other types of aircraft I've flown on. Embraer, Dehavilland, and Bombardier to name a few of those aircraft manufacturers. Do you have a favorite aircraft or list that you'd like to fly on?
