Default Data plate / dataplate required fields?

I bought the EAA registration kit a while back and just realized they included a data plate in there with only 3 fields: builder, model, serial#. That's nice and simple, but is that really all that's required?? Just want to confirm before I get it engraved and installed. Thanks.

That is all that is required.

Like Gary says, That's all that's required. But be aware, the information must EXACTLY match the information on your registration. Including the same format, i.e. last name first, etc.

Thanks Gary and Mel. I heard about the exact match issue, so I copied it right off the registration form.

The other data plates I found have all sorts of info on them, builder address, empty weight, etc. It's nice this one has the bare minimum, so I can get it engraved and installed now.

We have been somewhat "forgiving" of the last name first format, but at the last FAA recurrent training seminars, we have been told to make sure that the format is correct.

Yep... that's the case here in Atlanta recently. Our DAR has been very picky about that. So make sure it matches the registration EXACTLY!

I couldn't convince him I had three first names since my name is Scott E. Will. Will let ya'll figure out what the E is. But there was a king across the pond with that name.

What if the builder isn't the same person who registers/owns the airplane?!

I can DEFINITELY see the need for the Model and Serial # to be identical, with no exceptions. But the name? I donna geddit.

Dan,
What goes on the data plate is the name of the builder, not the owner.
The builder is always listed on the registration.
This has always been the rule, it is just being more strickly enforced now.
I agree with your point that if the builder's name is obvious, the order of the words shouldn't matter. That's why we have been "forgiving" in the past. But we have been told to "enforce" the rule, and we are obligated to do as they say. Otherwise we take the chance of loosing our DAR.
