    Ron, I think the line of thought that the economy lag might be slowing things down is right on the money.

    If there was a sudden rush this year in folks buying kits (because few are true plans built anymore), we'd see the spike in registrations three to five years from now.

    The Kitfox number raised an eyebrow, but then again, there are a lot of them out there.
    The opinions and statements of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

    Ron, I couldn't access the link you posted, got one of those 404 pages. Thanks for the info, if I go to the FAA website and look for de-registeration I should be able to find it. And Marty, I like the last sentence, " Now the number of FAA employees per plane is even higher!" Well, hopefully they can catch up a little, and maybe they can get a wiggle on and finish up my paper work. I've been going at it for over a year now.

    Thanks...I botched the file transfer to my web page. Should work now:

    There are search functions on the FAA page, but they're kind of crude. I get my data by downloading the complete FAA registry...

    http://registry.faa.gov/database/ReleasableAircraft.zip

    Open the ZIP file, and the deregistrations are in: DEREG.TXT. The 13th column is headed "Certification"; planes listed as "42" are Experimental Amateur-built (The 4 denotes experimental, and the 2 is the code for Amateur-Built).

    Unfortunately, the dereg file does not directly show the aircraft type. The third column is "MFR-MDL-CODE," which is a cross-reference to the ACFTREF.TXT file. I use Microsoft Access to merge the files, but you can use the "VLOOKUP" function in Excel as well.

    The page that handles the registry is:

    The looming ADS-B mandate is pushing some marginal unused aircraft away from the city. (or scrapped or deregistered)

    It *is* interesting to note that the closer the deadline gets, the more aircraft are being deregistered....
