Experimental Aircraft and serial numbers

Hi All

 

Looking for a bit of help here.

 

A friend and myself are considering building an aircraft from plans. I think it will fit into the CAO 95.55 para 1.5. category as it is a single seater, less than 544kg AUW and has a stall speed of 45knots or less. (and stand to be corrected if this isn't the case)

 

We have been asked to supply the serial number that we will put on the aircraft so they (aircraft spruce)can put it on the plans before they ship them.

 

My question....where or how do you go about getting a serial number for an aircraft that hasn't been built and may not be built. Do we just make up a serial number?

 

Advanced thanks for any advise here....

 

Regards

 

Phil

Hi All

 

Thanks for your input. It turns out that the serial number I thought we needed is one that is issued by the plans supplier. It ties the plans to the plan purchaser and to the aircraft that was/is to be built from those plans and makes up part of the license agreement.

 

Just thought I'd let you know what had happened....
