Registration Prefixes:

    • A database of International Aircraft Registration Prefixes

    • This data base is for the serious plane-spotter, or for those of you who have wondered what those letters mean that are painted on the side of every commercial, or private aircraft in the world. For example what can you learn about an aircraft with a number like N266US. Firstly, the N tells you the aircraft is registered in the United States, second, the 266 is just a number (like your street number), and the last two letters are added by the operator or government to signify something. In this case it's probably a US Airways aircraft. However, this is not always true if US Airways has sold or leased the aircraft to another U.S. or foreign airline, and the new operator has not changed the registration code.
