Hex Codes are nothing to do with the manufacturer, they are assigned by the state of registration and will change when an aircraft moves from one country to another.

Whether they are assigned to a particular airframe varies between states - in the UK it is to the airframe, but certainly in some other countries it stays with the registration.

Quoting rw774477 (Thread starter):
1. are they permanently assigned to a particular a/c ?

2. How can Ifind the latest for each manu. ?

Hex codes in Germany and Canada are assigned to registrations following a certain algorithm.
D-APAA = 3C0001
D-APAB = 3C0002
etc.

C-FAAA = C00001
C-FAAB = C00002
etc

Exceptions are generally military and ultralights.

In France the system is the same except military, ultralights and F-Wxxx registrations.

As mentioned above, som countries assign a HEX to a specific frame, others assign to registrations but not through an algorhithm.

Great ressources for hex-codes are

I must say, until reading this post, I'd never heard of a hex code for an airplane.

Learn something new every day, I guess.
