This template does not function alone; it must follow {{Infobox aircraft begin}}.

This template provides general data on types (and subtypes) of aircraft, but not technical specifications. If you want to include those, see {{Infobox aircraft type}}.

{{Infobox aircraft begin}}, this template, (and {{Infobox aircraft career}}, if applicable) must be enclosed by {| and |} that enclose a wiki-table (see Help:Tables).

Examples[change source]

For an article on an aircraft type, use:

{|{{Infobox aircraft begin
 |parameters go here
}}{{Inbobox aircraft type
 |parameters go here
}}
|}

For a case where the only example built of a particular aircraft type also had an individually noteworthy career (e.g., The Spirit of St. Louis, use:

{|{{Infobox aircraft begin
 |parameters go here
}}{{Inbobox aircraft type
 |parameters go here
}}{{Inbobox aircraft career
 |parameters go here
}}
|}

Infobox aircraft career[change source]

{{Infobox aircraft career}}

This infobox is used to summarize the career of an individual aircraft. Where this aircraft is a unique, one-off design, it should immediately follow {{Infobox aircraft type}} in the article. If the individual aircraft described in this article was built as part of a series (even a small one), this infobox should stand alone without {{Infobox aircraft type}}. It is not used for dimensions or performance; for that, use {{Aircraft specs}}.

When standing alone, |aircraft name= and |type= are required fields.
