This is the classic tail number search program, but with a twist. This app works in the air, making it the perfect tool for pilots while aviating or at remote airports. The entire FAA registration database (highly compressed) is included in the app - no cell signal or WiFi hotspot needed. And of course, the database can be updated when back on the ground.

Flat Spin "heading out to sea"

Great app but also need to include the ability to input s pilot name to see N numbers registered to him.

A Must Own Application

Nantucket Ned

If you are a pilot this is a must own application! It contains the entire FAA registration database in compressed format. Simply type the N number into the search box and the ownership record is returned. It works in the air and does not need an Internet connection. I find I use this application EVERY time I fly and every time I drive by the airport and see a new plane. Without a doubt it is one of my most used iPhone and iPad applications.

Great Aviation App


This app is very handy for a quick N-number look-up. When a plane taxis in, you can identify the owner and aircraft type in just a few second and you don't need any cell service as all the data is in a compressed database within the app. I refer to this app all the time.
