When you select an aircraft to fly, there are 2 important fields, namely:
TAIL (REGISTRATION) NUMBER
and below that...
If the flight number is left at the default value of 0, then the tail
(registration) number is used for ATC communications.
Keep in mind, that the TAIL/REGISTRATION is alhpa/numeric, and the leading
alpha character(s) denotes the country where the aircraft is registered
i.e., it's birth place! e.g., all Canadian arcraft's registration numbers
start with the letter C. All USA aircraft start with the letter N... Why
N? --- I have no idea.
The FLIGHT number is numeric only; typically 2-4 digits.
I hope this helps.
