I was checking out activity at my local airfield and noticed a type I haven’t seen before, EXXP. Anyone know what it is? I tried placing my cursor over it to see if it would tell me what it is, but nothing happened. Couldn’t find anything after doing a Google search either.
Could you provide a link to an arr. or dep. or provide your local airport.
Plus dozens more EXP flights in the last week by various tail numbers.
I’d guess they mean experimental but aren’t using the usual HXA/HXB/HXC codes or typoed EXP.
EXXP is the unofficial default code for experimental/home-built aircraft that don’t have an official identifier.
ok, that’s kinda what I thinking. Thanks.
You will see plenty of these this week and next heading/returning to/from Sun-n-Fun…
HXA EXPERIMENATAL AIRCRAFT Cruise IAS < 101 KT
HXB EXPERIMENATAL AIRCRAFT Cruise IAS > 100 and < 201 KT
HXC EXPERIMENATAL AIRCRAFT Cruise IAS > 200 KT
