A Comprehensive List of Every Civil Aviation Registry in the World (D-F)

This reference guide is part of a reference list of all civil aviation registries in the world that are available to the public — covering sovereign states beginning with D-F.

Most United Nations member states that are signatories to the 1944 Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation are also members of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Therefore, the vast majority of states with a federal aviation administration — usually accompanied by a robust international air travel industry — keeps public registries of every commercial and private airliner registered in their state — accompanied by ownership information, model, home airport information, etc.

However, some states with strict privacy laws regarding aviation — such as Germany — do not publicly disclose aircraft registration information. In these cases, I will include archived records, ICAO codes, and anything else that could useful for identifying foreign aircraft on open-source flight radars.

Many smaller states with internal unrest, budgetary restrictions, or insignificant air travel industries — such as Afghanistan or Turkmenistan — do not keep updated registries.

As this list takes a considerable amount of time and energy to maintain, it will be updated as I work. Please be patient with the rest of the alphabet. :)
