    Is there any advantage of applying for an N # using the paper method over registering through the FAA's website? I've already reserved my N # and have filled out the affidavit, 8050 etc. But have yet to mail it in.
    I recently saw that you can now register online but it doesn't assign you an N#, it's an FA registration #.

    Does it matter at all which way to go?

    If your 333 exemption says you have to have an N number you are required to do so. My guess is that they will phase the N number out soon. Although to fill out a UAS Civil COA you have to input a valid N number. The online form will not accept the online registration number. I am not sure if you can use the online registration number to fill out a NOTAM either.

    That is correct, you need an N number as previously stated.

    to hold a 333 your birds must all have n numbers.
