Name that Plane

The N-Number, logo, and the color of your aircraft are small details about an aircraft that make the craft more personal and can also make a big impact. If you own your own plane, these details are the face of your aviation business and therefore are a crucial part of making your aircraft (and business) memorable.

This activity guide contains two different activities which can be completed together or independently; one does not need the other. For activity one, students will choose an N-number or tail number for their plane, design a logo, and pick a color scheme for their own sustainable aircraft. For the second activity, students will be introduced to the phonetic alphabet and use it to help them communicate.

Students will learn the importance of and procedure for giving an aircraft its N-Number, a logo, and some color. They will design their own planes and learn how these small details can make a big difference.
