Aero Research has released their next photo reference CD, this covering a variety of commuter (or 'regional') passenger aircraft. As before, they've collected an impressive group of aircraft types and airline liveries to provide on this disc.

Once again I used my image browser to scan through the aircraft on the disc and I was quite impressed with the selection of aircraft. In this release, there are a nice variety of airliners that were in service from the mid 1960s and into the late 1990s. In a few cases, you can see how the liveries of a few airlines have evolved over time as they continue to refresh their image as well as their equipment.

The line-up of aircraft on this disk cover the following aircraft types:

  • Beech 18
  • Beech 99
  • Britten-Norman 2
  • Cessna 337
  • Cessna 402
  • Cessna 404
  • Cessna 414
  • CJ-600
  • DHA-3
  • DHC-3
  • DHC-6
  • DHC-7
  • DHC-8
  • Dove
  • EMB-110
  • EMB-120
  • Goose
  • Heron
  • Jetstream
  • Mallard
  • Metro
  • Navajo
  • Riley Dove
  • Skyvan
  • ST-27
  • Super Heron
  • Tawron
  • Trislander
  • Turboliner
  • Westwind III
  • Widgeon

For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for a trip down memory lane or perhaps to tackle a commuter aircraft kit for a change of pace. For the enthusiast and modeler alike, you can browse through a nice variety of high-resolution images of some very nice aircraft!

This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!

You can purchase this reference or any of their other photo CDs directly from their website or via email

My sincere thanks to Aero Research for this review sample!
