Are there any online, publicly available sources of aviation statistics, like:

  • number of manufactured aircrafts by type and year
  • number of registered aircrafts by type and year
  • number of aircraft incidents by type and year
  • etc.

I'm aware of Annual Reports of General Aviation Manufacturers Association, but this data is just for general aviation and it doesn't contain numbers before year 1990.

You wont find a single source for any of these things but you can find some of the info form fairly reliable sources:

All of these sources generally can get spotty before the 80's for a few reasons. A lot of those reports only existed on paper and are still being digitized so results are intermittent. Official governing bodies started at different times around the globe and even paper reporting took time to standardize, accidents that pre-date that may have gotten lost in the mix.
