An airplane or aeroplane (informally plane) is a powered fixed-wing aircraft that is moved forward by thrust from a jet engine or propeller. Airplanes come in many sizes, shapes, and wing forms. The broad spectrum of uses for airplanes includes recreation, transportation of goods and people, war, and research.

Most airplanes are flown by a pilot in the aircraft, but some are unmanned aerial vehicles or flown by a computer.
