So I’ve recently seen quite a few people using German registrations on the servers. Germany has a pretty unique system when it comes to aircraft registrations and I thought it’d be nice to know for everyone who is trying to make his/her IF experience as realistic as possible ;)
D-AXXX: All aircrafts with an MTOW of more than 20 tons
D-BXXX: All aircrafts with an MTOW between 14 and 20 tons
D-CXXX: All aircrafts with an MTOW of 5,7-14 tons
D-EXXX: All single engine aircrafts up to 2 tons
D-FXXX: All single engine aircrafts with 2-5,7 tons
D-GXXX: All multi engine aircrafts with up to 2 tons
D-HXXX: is used for all helicopters
D-IXXX: All multi engine aircrafts with 2-5,7 tons
D-KXXX: for all TMGs (Touring Motor Gliders) or gliders with an auxiliary engine.
D-LXXX: for airships such as the Zeppelin or a blimp
D-MXXX: Ultralight aircrafts (below 472,5kgs)
D-NXXX: Paragliders etc.
D-OXXX: Hot Air Balloons
Hope this “guide” will make it easier for you to decide which D- reg. to use when you are flying next time.
