to display N numbers at least 2 inches high. So if
you’re restoring an older homebuilt (or a standard
category airplane) that is at least 30 years old, you can
use 2 inches as your minimum height instead of 3 or
12 as discussed above. Further, 45. 22 allows amateur-built aircraft that are replicas of a small U.S. aircraft
that are at least 30 years old to also use 2 inches as the
minimum height. The FAA considers a “replica” to be
a full-size replica of an aircraft, so this doesn’t apply if
you scale the aircraft up or down from the original
configuration. What this regulation does allow is the
use of 2-inch-high N numbers on a number of classic
designs that have been around for 30 years or more. I
can’t name them all here, but examples that would fit
this regulation include Cub replicas, Pietenpols, the
Baby Ace, and many others. Even some designs that
we think of as “modern” homebuilts like the RV- 3 and
RV- 4 now qualify for 2-inch N numbers!
The regulations state that the N and any other letters
included in the registration mark be “roman capital.”
No cursive or script fonts are allowed.
Part 45 also contains other requirements for the N
number that are sometimes overlooked. For example,
Note that this “vertical” N number is not uniform in size and is spaced too
close together. There’s one more problem with this one: On aircraft with
multiple vertical tail surfaces the N number is required to be on the outer
surface of the outermost vertical tail surface. Note that this one is on the
inner surface of the vertical tail.
