The Essential Jefferson Airplane is a compilation of music from the San Francisco rock band Jefferson Airplane spanning its entire career, excluding the brief reunion in 1989 (despite that album now being under common ownership with the rest of the band's catalog).

It follows their development, in more-or-less chronological order, from their beginnings in folk-rock, through psychedelia, to conventional rock genres.
