Gulfstream IV Tail Number Question

Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:07 pm

Hello,
I am trying to figure out what tail number this gulfstream IV is.

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/KEY91

first numbers are N91... Anyone have an idea?

I think it might look like this: http://www.keyair.com/charter/fleet.htm?id=12

Not quite sure though....

-thank you

Hiya Matthew, took me some time to find it but it's N371FP. Flew 23 Dec as KEY91 in FMC ID field on mode-s.

Nigel Burch's fixed callsign page is well worth bookmarking by the way. I and others contribute a lot of data to it but he's always a bit behind when publishing new entries unfortunately (current list only to the end of November at the mo). I'll pass this info about KEY91 along to him as it was new to me as well (used to fly for Priester as PWA371 up until recently so seems like a new addition for Key Air).

ETA: N371FP is due to become N279AP according to the FAA register. Usually KEY use the numbers from the registration as the callsign so I'm struggling to see the connection between KEY91 and either of these registrations..

Thanks a bunch, I am also trying to see the connection. My only problem with the list is that is was updated in November 30th, 2010, and that is accurate, but is the information listed there true? If I put some of these planes, like KEY188, KEY777, KEY268, KEY689, KEY700, and KEY800, they haven't flown in about a year. I also know that KEY700, or N700GB is no longer with Key Air, and has been replaced by N375WB. I can see some of the info is off, but it does look good, my only question is if it is up to snuff?

You've got to understand that the info in that list is mainly compiled by spotters with the rest coming from flight plans and SBS reports. Due to the amount of info it's impossible to check it every month to make sure it's still accurate as it would be way too time-consuming. Generally speaking, if I hear one which I see in his list was last reported over a year ago then I'll send him a quick email giving him the fresh details and he'll update it for the next edition, but I'm probably the only person that bothers.

It's not designed to be a definitive list of up-to-date biz operators and their current fleets, it's there to identify a registration when you hear a fixed callsign and for me and most other people it serves that purpose very well. If you are looking for something more than this then all I can suggest to you is to start a list of your own!

Rgds.

ETA: Regarding your comment about Key Air, if you send Nigel an email he'll update the list. By the way, N375WB is not current with Key Air.
