Some owners want to change the registration "numbers" (which include letters) on an
aircraft, perhaps to display their initials, to have an alphanumeric sequence matching other aircraft they own or for other reasons. You may select any unused registration number, with a few provisos. For example, some numbers are reserved and others aren't legal (such as any number starting in "0"). Changes in registration numbers are made after the FAA approves permanent registration. A title company can reserve and file the necessary paperwork. The FAA fee for a change in registration number is $10. Once the documents have been filed, the agency grants approval within 30 days. (The aircraft's transponder must be restrapped to the new number.)

“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
