Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Aircraft status

Instead of a custom "status" text, you can use the aircraft rating system. The overall status is auto-calculated and will be displayed. If you use the aircraft rating system, remove the |status = line.

See Aircraft rating system for instructions on how to rate your aircraft.
