Jerry Jones' GSV is N1DC
I have 98887, only rarely do they call "nine-triple-eight-seven"! I think the latter sounds much better and easier...
Close! That sounded familiar, so I checked my logbook. I used to rent another 172P, N98987.
I flew the "Bimbo Bomber" N1MM, for 20 years.
I have several hours in an old 172 888GA. we got triple 8 golf alpha from tower and ground often
I use "triple four" a lot, but rarely on my first call. Sometimes I forget and do, it's not something I pay a lot of attention to. But it's easier and faster than saying, "four four four."
You guys with long "N" numbers are just over-compensating.
I fly angel flights regularly. I used call sign angel flight 573. But now they want us to use NG573 instead of angel flight . Does anyone know whats the reason for this change ? I like calling it angel flight.
@TangoWhiskey can probably exlain it (he's in the TX wing).
My guess it is for brevity and uniformity.
I always thought N-Numbers had to be a certain length. A Glasair at my local field is N4K, which I guess is desirable because someone offered him enough money for it that he can afford to paint his plane!
Depending on which angel flight groups I am flying for, I am either "NGF90P" or NGF3737, for filing, but it is still "Angel Flight xxx" over the radio.
As opposed to CMF for Compassion Flight...
FAA planes have short ones. Their plane numbers too!
I'd thought about reserving N2TU, just for the fun of it.
My friend was mad when his 2 seat powered parachute had to become light sport. Before it had been a trainer under FAR 103 rules. He got it registered as N103FU!
I have several hours in my buddy's Arrow N7555J. I tried "triple nickel" once but ATC wasn't having it.
Now that's a great idea! Mulligan, you still have time.
I met an insurance agent whose phone number is 1-800-DOG-****. Gross, but I still remember it!
I wonder who has N007?
Aviation author Peter Lert originally had that registration. He had a glider in the 60s or 70s, and the trailer looked a lot like a rocket, so he got the N-Number to match.
Nike contacted Peter, and offered to buy the registration. He won't say what they paid, but does say he hasn't had to buy shoes since.....
No one. Can't start with 0.
