  • Poor choice in tail numbers?

    apparently, air canada has a 777 with the tail number C-FITW.

    someone was not thinking straight....

    Could you enlighten me please? What's particularly weird in FITW again? There's 24 different C-FIT* in the canadian register. And C-GFIT and C-IFIT (but not C-FFIT) as well. So? Thanks mate!

      CFIT is an aviation acronym for Controlled Flight Into Terrain.

        That was not my question. Why is the letter W ending this well known abbreviation any poorer than C-FITA, C-FITB,... guess you just didn‘t think of these others?

          i didn't actually look into whether CFIT? was a tail number for any aircraft. i read a report about C-FITW and found it strange. nothing more.

          you can go back to relaxing now

                While in Brazil ultralight aircraft carry the registration prefix PU. And yes, someone did register theirs PU-Sierra Sierra Yankee.

                    Take any N-number ending with four Quebec, and then abbreviate it, but don't get phonetic on the letters...

                    Does ATC still abbreviate N-numbers?

                          Canadian registrations (except ultralights) start with C-F or C-G only. Even the backwoods ones.

                            Indeed. That airplane is actually registered C-GMAB. They have another one, C-GTFO.

                              Maybe there's a Mirage 2000D of french Air Force with F-Uniform Charlie Kilo Uniform (french M2000 fighters are F-Uxxx).

                              Maybe...
