Malta and San Marino take five

The Malta and San Marino aircraft registries both changed and widened the format for acceptable aircraft registrations last year. Both registries now permit the national prefix, plus a registration suffix of up to five alpha numeric characters – an increase from the previous three. In practice, this move opens the door to more quirky or meaningful personal registration marks. Below, are a few examples of new registrations that have seen aviation enthusiasts scratching their heads:

  • Malta – 9H-649FX (Gulfstream G650ER); 9H-HANSA (Boeing 737-800)
  • San Marino – T7-EAGLE (Bombardier Global Express); T7-88DGE (Embraer Legacy 600); T7-3338, formerly N-3338 (Bombardier Global 5000); T7-NGNG, formerly M-NGNG (Gulfstream G650).
