The secret behind aircraft registration
All African aircraft registrations are composed as follows:
The First letter is for the Country of Registration: T for Ivory Coast.
The Second letter is for the manufacturer of the aircraft: A for Airbus and B for Boeing.
The Third letter indicates the aircraft engine type, for example, E: for Jet engine, P for Propeller.
The Fourth letter is for the aircraft operational range: L for Long Haul, M stands for Medium Haul and R for Regional.
Only the fifth letter is freely assigned:
In others words, a Boeing 747-400 will be: T-BELK, while an Airbus A320 will be: T-AEMS
