FlightCode lists ICAO, IATA, FAA and Transport Canada (TC) Codes for airports, aircraft types and airlines. It also lists the country codes/registration informations of an aircraft and comes with a list of aviation abbreviations.
You'll find an integrated maps view for many of the listed airports along with weather information. Aircraft types contain related wikipedia information that you can send out to your friends if you like. In addition, you can mark everything you've seen or even write your own notes (spotting function). Stay in touch with the developer by using the direct feedback and bring in your ideas to make this application better and better. Nice photographs draw a better picture of the topic. Enjoy flying and enjoy FlightCode!

No longer seems to have support. Email address doesn’t work and database hasn’t been updated in a long time.
Ok, but dated
An ok collection of codes, although apparently it's not kept up to date. For example it's missing major aircraft types from the last couple of years, like the Boeing 747-8 or the Dreamliner (B787).
For the money I'd expect some updates over the years.
Data has not been updated for several years.
It is several databases and a simple search engine, plus aircraft enthusiasts can mark each type of equipment and airline as they see it. (Although exactly how you would identify each aircraft without a visual guide is not explained!)
A spot-check of the three-letter IATA airports codes shows some important gaps: SNA is missing; it s only of the busiest airports in the United States. So is FAT. In fact, a bunch of popular U.S. airports are missing.
This makes the app useless for North American users.
Curiously, the wake category of each aircraft is listed, but not using the usual Cat I, Cat II, etc., that are used for classifying runways. This info is only useful for air traffic controllers, since it determines the takeoff spacing between aircraft. Not sure what other use it has.
A small collection of in-air photos is included.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
