Taxonomy changes to the Bombardier DHC-8

We have updated our taxonomy slightly for the Bombardier DHC-8, to enable more flexible searching and allow customers to filter out the type’s Q-Series variants (later-produced versions with a cabin noise suppression system).

For the DHC-8-400, we have renamed the master series from DHC-8-400 to  DHC-8-400 (Q400); i.e. it now includes the marketing name. “(Q400)” has also been added for all relevant type series and subseries aircraft.

For the smaller Q200 and Q300, we have added the description in the type series and, in brackets, to the following subseries:

  • DHC-8-201Q
  • DHC-8-202Q
  • DHC-8-311Q
  • DHC-8-314Q
  • DHC-8-315Q

Revising the Airbus A330 taxonomy

The commercial aviation data research team have recently finished revising the Airbus A330 series structure which will enable customers to filter this data by master series, series and sub series, particularly the A330-200E/X and 300E/X models.

The screenshot below taken from Fleets Analyzer shows that customers are now able to filter right down to the sub series of the A330 type. In the case shown below the A330-200E sub series which is part of the A330-200 master series.

737 Max 10

In line with Boeing’s launch of the 737 Max 10, we have created a new sub series (and master series). Any new order announcements, as well as any model changes, will show under the “new” Max 10 sub series.
