What is an N-number?


An N-number is the FAA registration number for your aircraft. It is a code unique to the aircraft, required by international convention to be marked on the exterior of every civil aircraft, typically on the tail. The registration indicates the aircraft's country of registration and functions much like a license plate. In addition, N-numbers may not contain the letters I or O, due to their similarities with the numerals 1 and 0.
