I have to create a read-write property named CarrierName. This property has to accept one argument the aircraftID. Read or write theCarrierName property for the correct AircraftID. Could you please tell me if this is correct.

Public property CarrierName (ByVal AircraftID as Integer) as String
            Return CarrierName(AircraftID)
       End Get
       Set (ByVal value as string)
              CarrierName(AircraftID) = value
       End Set
End Property

I'm in a vb.net class and having problems so I can use all the help I can get.

No, that would create a circular reference.  You need an internal field property to store Property Values:

Private _carrierNames As New HashTable

Public Property CarrierName (ByVal AircraftID as Integer) As String
            If _carrierNames.ContainsKey(AircraftID) Then
               Return _carrierNames(AircraftID)
            End If
       End Get
       Set (ByVal Value As String)
              _carrierNames.Add(AircraftID, Value)
       End Set
End Property
