    I'd be willing to help make some .mp3s for ringtones if you guys aren't able to do it, post the source and the section and tag me

    I meant how did you get the .mp3 files to upload to POA? I tried and was blocked.

    You might need to use Dropbox or Google Drive and provide a link.

    I use "ATC chatter" as the ringtone for a couple of CFI friends.

    And, yes, I've used the Blue Oyster Cult "Godzilla" for other friends, too. In fact, a couple of BOC tunes make my list, and a couple of Thin Lizzy opening riffs, too.
    Right now, my default ring tone is "Pick Up The Pieces," which I hope is never aviation-related for any of us.

    Can email the MP3 ringtones to folks using Android phones - just let me know if you need anything. I use Audacity to make the tone and it just takes a couple of moments.

    I did a study a few years ago, funded by the federal government. What I figured out is that 95.6% of people with aviation related ringtones carry their phones in a case on their belts.

    I eventually found it and some other Betty-isms via sim pilots, loaded them into the GRT audio on the RV when I re-did my panel a couple years ago. Feels like home, now.

    I was born in them, molded by them. I didn't stop wearing until them I was almost a Dad.

    (Really though I was wearing them in high school and got a lot of crap for them)

    My ringtone has been a few bars from Steve Miller Band's "Fly Like an Eagle" for at least 10 years.

    My ringtone sounds like a phone ringing.

    I did have the Geico "World's worst ringtone" for a while but Margy made me get rid of it.
