This is a list of legally-free aircraft models and other aircraft-related items. While all of the resources listed here are free-to-own, some of these models are only free-to-use for non-commercial purposes. It is the user's responsibility to remain in compliance with each model's license.

When multiple URLs are given for an item, they are parts of a single download unless marked otherwise.

As always with my lists, contributions of links to other legal free aircraft models and aircraft-related items are not only welcome, they're encouraged.
