My brother Lucas is going planning to build a Vans RV7A. We thought it would be cool to have a similar tail number.
I downloaded the FAA Aircraft Registration database, which includes all sorts of data but two that I was really interested in:
- Registration Data
- Reserved Registration Numbers
This narrowed things down quite a bit, but consulting Lucas, he liked the idea of our tail numbers being the same except for JC and LC being the suffix. So, for example, 533JC and 533LC. So, a quick query and that resulted in quite a few numbers.
My wife, Crystal, then suggested we find a number with significance to the both of us. Birth dates, anniversaries, child hood street addresses, telephone numbers and a million other numbers were consulted. We eventually arrived at 622, our mom’s birth date. Now, to be fair to others, her’s was the only that was available :-)
So, my number is 622JC and my brothers 622LC.
