So which N-number would you choose to put on your plane, or (all other things being equal) rent from your local FBO, or being the senior pilot at your company would choose to fly in the fleet? What are your reasons for choosing it?
And to help lighten the mood further, what other interesting numbers can you think of, or have you heard over the radio?
A female at OKV flies a plane ending with Romeo-Romeo. Hearing that put a smile on my face. That led me to think of N69RJ, but of course THAT one is taken.
How to Properly Form an N-Number:
N-Numbers consist of a series of alphanumeric characters. U.S. registration numbers may not exceed five characters in addition to the standard U.S. registration prefix letter N. These characters may be:
one to five numbers (N12345)
one to four numbers followed by one letter (N1234Z)
one to three numbers followed by two letters (N123AZ)
To avoid confusion with the numbers one and zero, the letters I and O are not to be used.
An N-Number may not begin with zero. You must precede the first zero in an N-Number with any number 1 through 9. For example, N01Z is not valid.
Registration numbers N1 through N99 are strictly reserved for FAA internal use.
The FAA no longer issues numbers beginning with NC, NX, NR, or NL. On some older aircraft, these numbers may be displayed in accordance with FAR Part 45.22.
