Default Why did you pick your N Number ?

I've noticed that a lot of builders, including myself, have reserved N-numbers early in the project life cycle.

What is your N-number and why did you pick it?
(Can you tell I'm still stuck in a hotel in Dallas and can't drive rivets?)

N941WR
That should be simple. It's an RV-9 for one William Repucci. Also, my drink of choice is whiskey, so the one Whiskey Romeo thing works too.

Default N299rv

Well you must be bored.. 299 is the emergency phone number were I work
and I am a emergency response person so its the phone number for all
the exciting moments and I figured if I ever finnish this airplane it will be
one exciting moment in my life.. the rv part I am not sure where that came from, but I hope it goes will with a rv9a , then again, since the tail dragger is
the number one type of rv, a nosewheel will be a two..

N357JS

I liked the sound of Experimental 7 Juliet Sierra and those are my initials. My house address is 7. They say it is a lucky number. The numbers are sequential and have a good "ring" to them, I think.

N190WL

My dad's initials. He passed away a few years ago but would have loved the idea of building the 9A with me. I miss him terribly.

The number also looks like 19 OWL . I may try to incorporate that into the paint scheme somehow.

I just picked and reserved my number the other day

N614EF

My parents, Eileen and Fred, were married on June 14. They were married for 62 years until my Dad died a year ago February 20.

They gave me lots of values and great opportunities and I figure naming a plane after them was the least I could do.
