How Do You Determine The Rego Of Your Plane?

Wed Jun 15, 2011 6:03 am

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a way to determine which rego you will be flying on before you get to the airport, help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

The airline gives them to you when you fly the aircraft.

Do you mean as a passenger or as a pilot?

If you are a non-airline employee, you don't   Unless you have a friend at the airline (who's in a position where they have access to the info and are willing to break some rules for you...).

EDIT: another way to know, in advance, is to have spotters at the originating station message you on what tail number is flying your flight (assuming that the flight is a) a continuation and b) nothing happens which necessitates an aircraft change where you are boarding).

For places, where live websites like flightradar24.com are covered, I sometimes check at the originating airport right after takeoff (or later on route).
It can actually be useful information, as it often answered my question, wether I should get a seat upgrade, bring extra entertainment, or even a seat change, especially if thats an airline flying different configurations or making occasional aircraft changes on the route.

I have no clue of how to figure that out in advance. However, I always figure out when I get there I take note of the N# by taking a photo of the aircraft before I board. Also there is a website you can check but the data is some months old before it is available to be looked at (In the U.S. at least...). Also I believe the registration is displayed as you enter the aircraft. I know I've seen it a few times.
