First release alphanumeric aircraft registration marks coming soon

Initially, the new marks will only start with an X or 8, for example VH-8AB, VH-X9B, VH-X22. Marks will not contain the numbers ‘0’ or ‘1’ to avoid conflict with these numbers and letters. They also must contain a mix of alphanumeric characters – they cannot contain only numbers.

The full complement of marks will be made available when our digital systems are more developed and able to manage large numbers of alphanumeric marks.
