Why not drop the letter and use simple numbers that can be easily said and understood.
Also, numbers are much easier to enter at the gas pump.

What? You actually put in the letters? The pump will work with whatever you put into it.

I bet they sell a whole lot of gas to N1.

Yes, that's your option. Just keep this in mind.... several people at the Petaluma airport were GIVEN new motors by Chevron after they purchased contaminated fuel and were found through the use of sale tag and N number on the tag.

I looked at a LOT of N-number combinations with the "ease of speaking" at the top of my list. Finally found one that rolled off the tongue well AND had some meaning. N783V is my reserved number. The 783 represents my wedding date 36 years ago (July, 1983) and the V is for my last name. Here's a pic of what she'll look like when she's finished and painted.

Tailnum.com seems to be down. It was a nice way to search for available tail numbers.
Do we know who runs tailnum dot com? It would be a great way for a tail number hoarding website to find out what tail numbers people are searching for, and to snap them up before you get a chance to.

Just like the website URL providers, if you search on their site and don't register it right away, there's a good chance the next time you come back the URL won't be available anymore.

how interesting. you are correct.

I pronounced it chool-yet. but it really is choo-lee-yet. and sje-ra is again see-ye-ra.

then again, I come from a country where we say "Wikter" and "Viskee"...

Agreed! The initial post here makes almost no sense, but after reading it numerous times I sorta get the point. Not sure why it?s a point though...
