as per title, is this still a thing? If so, does it only apply to 'microlights'?

 

oh, and also can you try for a specific suffix like like you can with VH?

Yes.  95.10 aircraft can be registered with RAAus or HGFA dependant on type.

 

home built single seaters limited to 300kg mtow and 30kg/m at mtow are not terribly popular ... particularly as you’re not allowed to put kits onto that series unless the kit has been preapproved by RAAus/HGFA ... and I don’t think any have. 

 

basically  you can register a single sweater from a kit or home built in 95.55 and have 19 reg with more flexibility or under 95.32 with 32- reg so very few use 10- for new builds.  

 

The only real benefit of it is if you wanted to build a very light single seater jet or multi engine ultralight as the single engine propellor driven limits do not apply to 10- but do to all other RAAus series. 

 

On number sequence - all RAAus aircraft can have personalised numbers so long as they are not already used.  RAAus will charge you extra to get it allocated but it’s a possibility

no probs. I thought it would be something along those lines. Just turns out that the number I wanted to use would look even better prefixed with 10- 😄

 

But the plane is not in that category so 19- it is

Be aware that once registered in ANY RAAus registration sequence it cannot be changed after.  If you want a specific number - and it’s available - you have to build the plane to get that number.  

 

In RAAUS registration is for the life of the airframe

Can you reserve the number like you can with CASA?

Yes.  Once you have advised RAAus of the build and it’s underway you can reserve a number ... for a fee ... and it’s an annual fee to maintain it until you finish and register.

Well, I can’t imagine you’d want to change a number on your plane once you have it, whether you picked it or not so that won’t be a problem:)
