Default N313KC

My wife and I met when we were on active duty in the Air Force. She got an incentive ride on a KC-135 and I was the copilot. The tail number on the tanker? 313, of course.

Now you all know that you have to keep the wife happy and involved in the project or it will be ugly. So N627LT is our anniversary and the letters of our first names. Now if I forget my anniversary I'm in big trouble.

Default N655RB

My first RV-4 used my birthday and initials.
When I sold it, the new owner changed the registration, so my number became available again.
So my new RV-7 will have the same N number as my RV-4 did.

Default Aussie rego's

On the Aussie register, apart from the previously mentioned VH-VAF, as of last year we have a VH-VAN.
After months of searching I reserved VH-MRV, hoping to surreptitiously
(unofficially, of course) superimpose a small "y" between the M and R .... VH-MyRV.
Without a doubt the best is in Albany, Western Australia ... an
RV-6 ....... VH-JOY .......

N16GN - I wanted a low number with my initials, and I wanted something that rolls off the tongue easily. After having about 35%-40% of the controllers I talk to screw up 2451N on initial callup, I wanted something easy.

Default 318 FIS

My avatar should make it pretty obvious. I was in the 318th when the unit was deactivated. The squadron colors were sheathed on 7 Dec 1989. I was one of the 25-30 present when we literally shut off the lights and locked the hangar door. It will be good to see that tail flash fly again, and besides IMHO it was the neatest tail in all of ADTAC.

Default LN-BAW and LN-AKC

My first -7 was bought partly finished by a US Builder, so it's named after him and his wife: B - Bill, A - Ann and Bill's middle name: W- William.

("LN" is the mandatory national country-code for Norway)

My second -7 is named after the three persons who had to say OK when I asked them wether or not they would approve my plans to build an airplane:

A- Alf (when I asked my self, the answer was an easy one... hehe...)
K- Kjell (a friend of mine who where absolutely necessary to have with me on the project)
C- Cecilia (my wife)
Regards Alf Olav Frog / Norway
First RV-7 completed, (bought partly finished from a US-builder) 305 hrs per July 2014, SOLD
Second -7 had first flight Feb 25th 2014. 220 hrs pr July 2019. Life is good!
