First of all I would recommend you to search and read some of the previous aviation photography posts available in this forum, I am sure you will find a lot of interesting stuff that will help you a lot, because many of us have already shared our doubts in order to understand our mistakes and improve our edition techniques.

Sharpening is not related only to f numbers, there are many other factors included. Of course if you do not set your camera properly to get a sharp image there is no editing software that will turn a blurry image into a sharp one. Surfing on the internet you will find tons of videos telling you how go get tack sharp images.

Finally look up for Angelo Bufalino's and Andre Nordheim's tutorial videos (specific for aviation edition) on Youtube. They are awesome!

Good luck!

If your pictures is not sharp you need better lens and probably new camera but THE LENS is MORE IMPORTANT! Then yu also need to use always something like f8. Also if you have 500mm lens do not use shutter speed under 1/500. If you have 300mm lens do not use shutter speed under 300mm (you got the point. But I would recommend you to use over 1/1000 shutter speed and low iso like 100- 260

I agree with Katz. Settings and techniques are more important than equipment. Abundance of light is most important. You are encouraged to take photos under clear sky. Cheap lenses can produce sharp images at f/8-f/11. Cheap DSLRs can produce high quality images at ISO 200 or lower. All of my published photos are taken with my 400 US$ DSLR and 200 US$ lens.

However, it is true that luxury devices can help you take good photos in challenging conditions that require wider aperture and/or higher ISO.

Improvement of sharpness in editing is limited, in my opinion.
