Where do you get your Aircraft Specifications?

Hello, IFC,
I see lots of feature requests and spotting topics where people post lots of specifications on aircraft.
Where do you get all of these facts and specs?
I usually visit this practical little website which I like a lot since it has the A350 and older planes like the 707, 727, etc.but since it does not have all the aircraft, I would like to know where else to look.
Thank You!

Just look up the registration to find aircraft details and use like wikipedia for specs

But are there websites for all of the certain aircraft type?

Airfleets.net is a good one for searching registration numbers etc and getting specs.

If you really want to get technical. look up the aircraft type POH (pilots operating handbook). Essentally an instruction manual for the airplane. It will have weights, deminsions, powerplant info, speed limitations, center of gravity. Etc. Just google it. You can typicaly find a PDF file of one. It’s way better than wikipedia also more truthful and published by the aircraft manufactuer. Sorry, my specialty is aviation not spelling.

… And this is when @DeerCrusher comes in :)

no, @Alex_Coffey, I’m not a pilot… :(

Sometimes the best place to go is to the manufactures website and look at the aircraft. Take Cessna or Airbus for example. They publish their aircraft specifications on their websites with cruise altitudes, speeds, range, etc.

Does it look good aesthetically or factually ? :)

Both I think. But it doesn’t adhere to the Material Design standards
