Markings

Civil Aircraft Registrations

In the Portuguese colonial period, civil aircraft based in Angola/Portuguese West Africa used the registration sequence CR-LAA to CR-LZZ, 1929-1975. Initially the last letter always an ‘A’, but this was later dropped. After independence the sequence D2-xxx was adopted.

An all-time Civil Rotorcraft Register of Angola listing is here.
A listing of the CR-Lxx Register is also available.
