Our PlaneTags are made from N6922A, which was built during the first production year of the 172, in 1956. Although 172 and Skyhawk are synonymous now, the name Skyhawk wasn’t used until late 1960 when Cessna was developing the next model, with a deluxe option called the Skyhawk. In the 66 years since the 172 first debuted, it has become the most produced aircraft ever. This appeal of this popular aircraft comes from its affordability, safety, economy, and ease of flying. Generations of pilots all over the world have learned to fly in some variation of a 172, which continues to be the most popular trainer in the world, even after all these years.

PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags
Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
Unique - each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.
Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card.
Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
- Please Note: Due to limited quantities, combination colors you may receive will vary.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
