Welcome to the Military Aircraft Reference

The most distinctive feature of this site is the very comprehensive (+1.000) reference of military aircraft, providing technical and historical data. The list can be sorted and filtered for all relevant fields (year of introduction, number of aircraft built, crew size, speed in knots, range in miles and ceiling in feet). Every aircraft has a link to the respective Wikipedia article for background information. For airport design in FSX both the wingspan and the resulting parking spot size is provided.

Mid 2012 the unique Military AI Reference was added. You find a list of 2.600+ military aircraft models, repaints and flight plans, all with download links. Mid 2013 I added the AI Screen Shot Gallery which presents all MAIW Hot-Shot winners and more than 600 of my AI pictures.

Other special features of The Owl's Nest are the very detailed overview of all MAIW and other military AI aircraft packages, the country based ICAO airport database, the airport search and the airport distance calculator. Both the Airport Search and the Distance Calculator use Google Maps to show you either the satellite picture of the airport or the flight route. You will find online converters for both speed and distance units. Check out the recommended sites, some jewels are buried there. Watch Live Air Traffic, or look for the AI Aircraft Editor and other tools in the Download Center. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

My warm and cordial thanks go to Markus Biechele for hosting The Owl's Nest for so many years. With my new Swiss based provider Sylon the Owl flies like on afterburner. I hope there is something useful for you to discover here. Enjoy your visit!
