I'm aware that I can look at the Wikipedia entry for an aircraft and discover specifications like the MTOW, length, cruise speed, etc. However, I was wondering whether there is a (preferably free) source of all this data combined for most aircraft. Does such a data source exist?

    $\begingroup$ Most? From Wright's flyers up? 2 seaters to A380? Russians built as well as western built and china built? Then there is too many. Can you scope down a bit of what you want? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ What you want all planes specs for? Some research or personal use? If you list which plane you want to know maybe someone may have them handy but no one will have specs of most planes at hand. $\endgroup$

You can find a lot of information about aircraft in their Type Certificate Data Sheet that is available from the FAA or other certificating authorities. The FAA's is located here. It takes a bit of time to find certain things, and other things aren't included like range, or sometimes dimensions.

    $\begingroup$ @Hugh It is a single machine-readable source. Your computer is most likely capable of retreiving files from the internet in an automated manner. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I disagree. But thank you: this is a comprehensive, if unwieldy, source of data. $\endgroup$

It's not free (Amazon lists it for between \$500 and \$1,000 USD) and it's not machine-readable, but yes, the data is out there.
