I’m looking at purchasing a PA-16 project that has an expired registration. FAA is giving the current owner fits over reregistering it. Seems some fool within FAA doesn’t believe the old aluminum data tag that meets drawing 85411 isn’t a real Piper data plate.

Anyone that would be willing to share pictures of the data plate installed on their PA-16 would be appreciated. I’ll use them as supporting documentation to prove the legitimacy of the data plate on this aircraft.

This is an effort to return an airplane to active life and an effort to try and counteract the foolishness of FAA Order 8100.19.

Any help is appreciated. Even if I don’t buy this one, I’ll help the current owner get the registration cleared up to the best of my ability. You can email pictures to n14ky@aol.com
