Question When to Register N Number?

I searched but did not find an answer.

I have my N number reserved.

When can I or should I register it?

You'll have to renew the registration every 3 years so most people hold off until they are about ready to fly.

The registration process is rather quick, if all paper work is in order. If there is any mistakes in the form, it could set it back. Considering registration is rather cheap, I think only $5, I would register it as you get closer to your final assembly and think you will be ready for the inspection. It is required for the inspection.

For me, that was about 2 months prior to certification and flying. Contact Vans and request the BoS. If the kit was previously owned, you will need to show proof of ownership from the previous owner or owners.

Wait until your are very close to final inspection before first flight, i.e. wait until it's almost an airplane. Many states use the FAA Aircraft Registry to find new owners to whom to send out sales tax bills. And, if your state has a personal property tax on airplanes, it likely doesn't apply to just airplane parts.

Is registration still possible with the shut-down? Or is it on hold right now?

Registration got reclassed as essential after the previous shutdown so they are working. They are running about 7-8 weeks behind which is about the same as they were before the shutdown.

Thumbs up

So, what I’m hearing is, that if taxes are not an issue, registering early is OK.

My state wants to see a N number associated with the hangar I’m buying.
