This page contains a list of aircraft registration prefixes and some rules for the full registration numbers. The list was provided by Andreas Gehrs-Pahl (schnars@ais.org). Please send any updates or corrections to him.


This list contains all known International Registration Prefixes for aircraft, sorted by Country Prefix (Code)


Explanations and conventions:
=============================

Code           = International Registration Prefix, as displayed on the 
----             aircraft, but with letters from the Latin alphabet;
                 (Cyrillic or other alphabets are indicated in {} in the 
                  Description); 

Country        = English representation of the name of the Contry;
-------          (it is indicated, when the government form, like Republic, 
                  etc., is part of the name);
                 (previous names are listed as 'was OldName');
                 (equivalent and some indegious spellings/names are listed as
                  'also OtherName/Spelling');
                 (prevoius country affiliations are indicated by 'FROM - 
                  TILL OldName');
                 (Common International Abbreviations are also listed);

Description    = Displays and explaines (if available) all the possible 
-----------      registrations in the form '1 - 999, AAA - ZZZ'; meaning a
                 registration could be either a number between 1 and 999,
                 but without leading zeros, or any combination of three 
                 letters like AAA, AAB, AAC, up to ZZZ;
                 (if letter have a known special meaning, this meaning is
                  explained);

Current        = Y - (Yes) if the code is currently in use;
-------          N - (No) if the code is now out of use, either replaced by
                     another code, or the country ceased to exist;
                 ? - (Unknown) if it is not sure if this code was ever used
                     or ever assigned to this country;

Time-Frame     = Lists the time frame of the validity of this code, form of 
----------       registration or existence of country;
                 (a '(+)' denotes 'at least', a '(?)' denotes 'guessed');

CAPITALS       = in Code: as is (the registration prefix);
                 in Description: represents a range; "AAA - ZZZ" means:
                 possible registrations are AAA, AAB, etc. up to ZZZ;

the letter 'x' = represents a variable; possible values can be found in 
                 remarks like: (x = A/B/C); 

the '-' (dash) = after a Code: ("XX-"): represents the separator, as it is
                 displayed on the aircraft;
                 in Description: ("XXX - XXX"): means a range (from - to)

text in ()     = surrounds explanations or remarks;

text in []     = surrounds optional parts of registrations, which are 
                 either sometimes omitted or which are only sometimes used 
                 as modifiers;

text in {}     = represents letter from the cyrillic or other alphabets; 
                 it contains a visual representation of the character, 
                 using other ASCII characters (as far as possible);
