Database of Construction Number of Aircraft

Aircraft Tail Numbers Database List

Each registered aircraft has a unique aircraft tail number that we provide as an aircraft tail numbers database list. These are assigned by the national aviation authorities and are widely used to identify the aircraft. As these world aircraft registration numbers are recognized by official authorities, they are the only way of tracking individual flights with an identifier. This makes aircraft tail number data a must-have for tracking flights of a certain airline or the aircraft itself. We provide the aircraft tail numbers database list data via a JSON REST API for seamless integration and update our data to ensure accuracy.

National Aviation Authority (NAA) uses procedures set by each country for the registration of aircraft. Our complete world aircraft registration numbers database with API for developers contains numbers of registered aircraft. The registration process starts when National Aviation Authority assigns a unique combination of letters and numbers to each aircraft. The registration number also represents the country of the aircraft and the NAA provides the aircraft with the Certificate of Registration. 

In the USA, a registration number is usually called an N number because all aircraft registered there have registration numbers starting with the letter N. The interesting thing to mention is the fact that no registration number contains letters I and O since they are similar to numbers 1 and 0 and may make some confusion. 

Good to know!

When an aircraft is destroyed or retired, some countries decide to allow the use of its registration number. In these cases, it is important to notice the change of aircraft using the registration number that already exists. Sometimes it happens that the aircraft changes its owners and this can also lead to the registration number to change. This is why it is important to have access to the international aircraft tail number database which is accurate and updated regularly. Problems may occur if you use the wrong registration number and thus identify the aircraft wrongly. 
Aviation Edge provides a constantly expanding aircraft tail numbers database which saves both time and cost for developers. Our database basically plays a role as an aircraft registration search platform that makes aircraft tracking easy. Rely on our external data and do not waste time collecting and maintaining your own aircraft tail numbers database list.
