IIRC the PH-B*J registrations are used for flight simulators.
|Quoting Vunz (Reply 1):|
flight simulators use the corresponding PH-**X registration.
|Quoting Vasu (Reply 4):|
Why do the simulators need to have registrations?
|Quoting EHHO (Reply 5):|
Yeah, why is that actually?
Also, why do models need their own rego's? Isn't it cooler to have a model of an existing jet, or are there ethics concerned (post-crash collectibles etc.)?
|Quoting Lamedianaranja (Reply 8):|
Simulators have names also, does anyone have a list of all KLM's simulator names?
|Quoting Kaitak (Reply 6):|
All Aer Lingus airplanes are named after saints, but the simulators are named "St. Thetic" (think about it!!)
|Quoting JRadier (Reply 7):|
The reason I heard that models use the J (ie not used in real regs) is indeed the resemblance to a real plane in case of a crash etc.
|Quoting Fokker70NG (Reply 11):|
Do many carriers reserve a registration for each aircraft type, just for models? The few models in my collection all have existing registrations.
