    My last 3 digits are 630 which they like to change to 360. Was caught off guard once near my own Class C when ATC addressed me as American 360. I get "November", "Grumman" or "Tiger" 99% of the time so thought that call was for an airliner:confused:. We got it fixed fast ....

    Other than Uniform becoming Unicorn, I got lucky with my tail number. 1236U just rolls off the tongue.

    I flew for a volunteer org, and all our aircraft call signs started with "CAP 18xx"; there were four or five of us in the pattern, or inbound, to KHGR one day. Tower lost his mind. Hearing the cluster eff in-bound, I reverted to my airplane's N number on initial call-up.

    Was flying the other day and tower kept calling me 37Z...I am 37L. I kept correcting on my call but she just kept calling me 37Z. I thought about not responding anymore to see if that might fix it but then thought...nah it's not worth it. Then they tried to shove me into a neighboring navy airspace. I got barked at because I wasn't maintaining the heading given and I politely said 37L can't current heading will put me in the navy airspace. She came back and said 37Z Roger once clear turn 090. Hahaha oh well good times

    Not buying it, unless FAA suddenly forgot to buy pens. Because we all know it's impossible to fix a flight strip. LOL.
