List of pusher aircraft by configuration

A pusher aircraft is a type of aircraft using propellers placed behind the engines and may be classified according to engine/propeller location and drive as well as the lifting surfaces layout (conventional or 3 surface, canard, joined wing, tailless and rotorcraft), Some aircraft have a Push-pull configuration with both tractor and pusher engines. The list includes these even if the pusher engine is just added to a conventional layout (engines inside the wings or above the wing for example).

Conventional and three surface layoutsEdit

The conventional layout of an aircraft has wings ahead of the empennage.

Direct driveEdit

Prop ahead of tailEdit

Between booms or framesEdit
Coaxially on rear fuselageEdit
Nacelle above fuselageEdit
Below tail boomEdit
Above tailboom, behind fuselageEdit

Propeller behind the tailEdit

Lateral behind wingEdit

Lateral nacellesEdit

Engines and props behind the pilotEdit

Remote driveEdit

Propeller ahead of tailEdit

Within airframeEdit
Behind wingEdit

Inside tailEdit

Behind tailEdit

Propeller above fuselageEdit

Canard and tandem layoutsEdit

A canard is an aircraft with a smaller wing ahead of the main wing. A tandem layout has both front and rear wings of similar dimensions.

Direct driveEdit

Remote engine mountingEdit

Tailless aircraft, flying wings and closed wingEdit

Tailless aircraft lack a horizontal stabilizer, flying wings lack a distinct fuselage, with crew, engines, and payload contained within the wing structure.

RotorcraftEdit

Push-pull aircraftEdit

Sides of fuselageEdit

ExtremitiesEdit

On nose and between boomsEdit
