        FR24 database details are as above, so you need to check that your transponder has the correct hex code entered.

        It would appear that your transponder is miscoded 8A0637, which belongs to PK-LUS.
        Don't know the ICAO type code? Look it up here.

          Leased from Irish leasing company.

          EI-Reg

          Irish HEX assignment

          = Ireland flag of origin.

            My Apology, it was my mistake.
            The Hex Code should be : 8A0437

              No mistake. Your original post is correct.

              However, this isn't the code being transmitted by the transponder(s).

                Noted, I will ask the engineer to check and re program.
                But , why did ATC not complain to the crew if the plane identified different Registration?

                    ATC will see callsign in this case "PKYSF" and the squawk code as the only means of identification from the transponder, rest of the information is from the flight plan. So ATC will know its you even if the transponder is coded incorrectly. There are thousands of miscoded aircraft flying without a problem, it needs the relevant authorities to police them.

                      The Colombian Police registration has a separation with (-) but the Colombian air force does not have a separation with (-)
                      Examples
                      PNC-0747
                      FAC5732

                      Please correct because include separation in the Colombian air force and that registration does not have separation (-)
                      Thanks

                            FAC registration don’t have the dash (neither the PNC ones) but letters and numbers are separate. So the dash marks the separation.

                            There are also some PNC aircrafts without space or dash:

                              In some cases they have separation due to errors when registering the registration in jetphotos.com

                                Please, look at the pictures (the registration in the aircraft) not their description. Both PNC and FAC have separation, the second one are also written in two different rows and only the last aircraft have no space.
                                So dash is like a separation.
