    I hope at least one cheeky ATC guy says “say again N number”.

    This guy who hangars where I fly from has a nice tail number (and airplane!). He’s also a really nice guy!

    A while ago @SkyHog had N999NN reserved. I’m not sure if it ever ended up on a plane, though.

    Looks like a near-miss for a palindrome. Drop the final N, and then it’s the same forward and backward.

    Thats a blast from the past for me. A friend had a nicely restored J-Bonanza and he got N-one and his initials. He is Cal Earley. I flew with him some and I got stick time in the old N1CE. Late 70's early 80's.

    ATC never got my number on the first try: N76567. "Say again?"

    I learned to fly in 50909. Was not fond of the tail number. Now I fly a Skylane in airspace that has several other Skylanes with very similar N-numbers.

    Hard to understand why some stuff is allowed on this site after being tossed twice ... once for telling the truth and another for trying to apologize for telling the truth! :dunno:

    It can’t be done. They won’t allow you to start with a zero sadly.

    How about the N number for the Goodyear Blimp?

    “Podunk tower, this is November One Alpha, the Goodyear Blimp Mayflower, 8 out for landing with Oscar. We ought to be over the field in a day or two…”

    My wife is from just over the border to the north. I’ve thought of reserving N4Q, but it appears that one is already gone. “Montreal Radio, Bonjour, N4Q…”

    So odd that when you reserve the format is N-123AB

    So you cannot use the dash in the number on your plane can you?

    Projects long since gone to market:
    N92515 Piper
    N46515 Aeronca

    Put the parts together and I could have had N515.

    If you have a Piper, you need to change the number to end in 202. And, of course, fly into Teterboro...

    I grew up flying in N19998 It was known as One Triple Niner Eight I miss that n-number!

    I fly my friend's 182 quite often. N3VQ More than a few times I've called in with Skylane 3VQ and had them ask for my full n-number! I laugh and tell them that's it.
