Notification of nomination for deletion of Template:Briffaud aircraft[edit]

This is to inform the members of this Wikiproject, within the scope of which this article falls, that this nav box template has been nominated for deletion at Wikipedia:Templates_for_discussion/Log/2015_March_29#Template:Briffaud_aircraft. - Ahunt (talk) 11:40, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

It can be noted that this TfD was closed as "no consensus" and therefore the template has been retained. - Ahunt (talk) 12:25, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

DJI (company)[edit]

This article needs serious improvements and updates, things like the DJI Inspire and the DJI Phantom 3. GizModo, Forbes, Engadet, even the BBC. I'm thinking things like the Inspire need their own article maybe? And the company page needs lots of cleanup... EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 21:33, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Notification of nomination for deletion of Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association[edit]

HAL AMCA[edit]

While working out why an article on what is really just another Indian design project and tried to work out why it has some much text added to it recently I noticed the HAL AMCA template has been added which doent really add anything to the article so I have nominated it for deletion at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2015 April 11#Template:Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft, comments welcome. MilborneOne (talk) 09:58, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

The article itself is a mess, with much of it sourced to blogs and other unreliable sources. It would take a colossal effort, however, to clean the aricle up.Nigel Ish (talk) 10:04, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I have tried a few tweaks but as Nigel says it is now badly sourced and mostly woffle and trivia. Perhaps we should roll it back to before all the recent changes by an IP? MilborneOne (talk) 11:36, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Tethered VTOL UAS Article[edit]

I am long time user of Wikipedia first time author. I would like to put together a new article on tethered VTOL UAS. I have listed a few examples of the platforms below. Would an article of this type meet the notability standards of Wikipedia?

AviationUAS (talk) 00:15, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Is this topic bigger than could just be a section in Unmanned aerial vehicle? Also those websites you note all seem to be manufacturers or sales websites, an article based on those would probably be seen as promotional in nature. An article really needs independent third party sources as per WP:N, like newspaper, journal and magazine coverage. - Ahunt (talk) 13:33, 15 April 2015 (UTC)


Which planes feature the BUAP? --Ysangkok (talk) 09:39, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

That depends on what you mean by BUAP. I am guessing not BUAP. - Ahunt (talk) 13:37, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Presumably the Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot. I have added a disambig link at BUAP Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 17:25, 16 April 2015 (UTC) - corrected 18:40, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
BUAP still redirects to Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla currently. - Ahunt (talk) 17:38, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I see, you added a hatnote. Personally I would have made BUAP into a disambiguation page, but your call on that. - Ahunt (talk) 17:40, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Oops, yes, BUAP itself is a redirect, sorry. There is currently a merge discussion over Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot and Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible Autopilot - until that is settled, I'd hate to start thinking about any possible disambig page. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 18:39, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

PAK TA[edit]

PAK TA - not sure what to make of this !! MilborneOne (talk) 18:52, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Well, it is clearly about as likely to be built as a nuclear-powered bomber, but the links seem to be genuine. I suspect it may be just a bit of fluff to try and con some investor or government department out of their money. Such vapour projects have always been common enough in aviation. Do we ever document them? — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 19:14, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
We actually do have a standard for this at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Aircraft/Notability#Future_aircraft. - Ahunt (talk) 13:44, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
