According to the information available online there are EMUs unit numbers have been used during space shuttle and ISS program till now like: 3003, 3004, 3005, 3006, 3008, 3009, 3010, 3011, 3013, 3014, 3015, 3016, 3017 and 3018. There was any more using on Earth during training or so?

Can you give more lights on this topic? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

ILC Dover have at least one EMU manned whenever they are used on orbit; to trouble shoot issues should they arise. I do not know the number but can make enquiries.

Thanks very much for this information.
EMU #30XX = PLSS #10XX

EMUs #3003, 3004, 3005, 3006, 3008, 3009, 3010, 3011, 3013, 3015, 3017, 3018 are exist. Total 12 EMUs, four of them are onboard ISS. These are #3005, 3010, 3011 and 3015. Others are on the ground.

EMUs #3007 and 3012 do not exist anymore, because PLSS #1007 and 1012 were destroyed onboard Challenger (STS-51L).

EMUs #3014 and 3016 do not exist anymore, because PLSS #1014 and 1016 were destroyed onboard Columbia (STS-107).

Information about EMU numbers from STS-1 to STS-88 (before ISS) there is at this pdf document.

Does it exist any document with such data for next shuttle missions to STS-135?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Which leads to the question: Where are the EMUs from the first successful shuttle spacewalk, as well as from STS-5?

NASA has not released any complete flown suits to any museum. Most of the parts are still in use, either in flight or for training and outreach.
