Default FM?

Say Lee,
What is the origin/significance of the letters 'FM' in your N number?

Best,

Hahahaha! I thought some of you guys might have a bit of fun with this one! I just really like Mark Frederick's classic beauty...what can I say? I tend to fly mine on short hops (about 500 sorties at this point) and it flies just the same and just as well as it did on day one. Wonderful airplane!

Ron: We're thinking of reinstating the Race to Ridgeland, probably sometime in October this year. I'm counting on you to lead the way around the course as always. By the way, I have really enjoyed following your discussions associated with RV competitive aerobatics. You're clearly enjoying the "ride" and getting really good at it too.

Pierre: My "N" number is both from my past and an attempt at brevity. I flew combat in VMFA-115 as a Marine First Lieutenant. There are only two letters in the phonetic alphabet (Golf and Mike) that have only a single syllable, plus one other (Foxtrot) that is often transmitted as a single syllable. I just put 115 together with FM since the combination was in fact available in the FAA registry. FM (Fox Mike) is also one of the frequency bands used with forward air controllers, so it all fit together (in my mind, at least!) pretty well. Only five syllables to say my whole N number (not counting the N or "experimental").

Zilik: That is a model of a serious F1! I'm pretty sure mine can get off the ground quicker than the original, but it has me on top end, for sure! On the other hand, mine is still flying...just sayin'.... ;>)
