Summary and review


Perfect! Now you know the Route table. Let's check another table.


Select all information from the Aircraft table. PerfectAir has its own fleet, and each aircraft is listed in the table. The table contains the following information:

  • an internal ID number for the aircraft (Id),
  • the aircraft's make and model (Model),
  • the date when production on that aircraft was completed (ProducedDate),
  • the date when the aircraft took its first flight for PerfectAir (LaunchedDatetime),
  • the date when that aircraft finished its final PerfectAir flight (DiscontinuationDatetime).

Note that the ProducedDate and LaunchedDatetime dates may differ significantly (e.g., if PerfectAir bought a used aircraft).

You may have noticed that LaunchedDatetime is a more accurate column (it shows the date and the time). This is because PerfectAir wants to mark the exact moment of the aircraft's first takeoff.
