I believe that the N's have to be at least 12 inches and the aircraft does need a FCC permit and it should cost around 100.00 but im not too sure about the 12 inches N numbers.Rally said:Do I need a FCC radio permit for the aircraft if I am going to the Bahamas? I have my own (pilots) but I'm getting my a/c ready to go. I know I need large N #s.
The FAA doesn't give a didley squat about FCC licence, and unless there is an FAA inspector on the customs ramp, you might get away with the N number size. If you're going to disregard these regs, then when will you conform to other regs? Read 14CFR45, the numbers don't have to be perminent, they may be temporary.Way2Broke said:I am not saying to disregard the regs, but would a private owner really get busted for not having a FCC radio license, or 12 inch "N" numbers? Just curious. I would think that the FAA and FCC have better things to do with their time.
