This list features any equipment used to operate a flight number, which  may include helicopters, light aircraft and even ground equipment such  as a bus or a train.

This list is sorted alphabetically by IATA code (3 characters), and also  features the ICAO code (4 characters). IATA codes are mostly used on  public material (tickets, timetables), while ICAO codes are mostly for  professional use (flight plans, air traffic control scopes).
