What topics can I ask about here?

Aviation Stack Exchange is a site for pilots, engineers, controllers, mechanics, and aviation enthusiasts.
If you have a question about…

  • Flying technique, maneuvers, navigation, procedures, etc.
  • Air Traffic Control
  • Aviation Weather
  • Aviation Regulations
  • Aerodynamics (related to aircraft)
  • Aviation Safety
  • Aircraft Design and Manufacture

and it's not about…

  • Accident speculation
    "What happened to Flight 12345?" when the incident is still under investigation
  • The "passenger aspects" of commercial air travel
    These questions can be asked on the Travel Stack Exchange site.
  • Rockets or spaceflight
    These questions can be asked on the Space Exploration Stack Exchange site.
  • Resource location
    Where to buy a specific part, "Which headset is the best?", Where can I get a feed of flight-related data? etc.

…then you're in the right place to ask your question!

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.

If your question is not specifically on-topic for Aviation Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area 51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
