That’s just fair warning for the Canadians.
Most of the time approach/center replies "Cessna/Mooney/Diamond/Grumman/etc 1234" whenever I call up like that. FSS never does and always replies "November 1234". I suppose my speed is relevant to approach/center but not FSS. Whatever the case, that's the reason I always say type when calling a controller and say "November" when calling FSS.
LOL. Needs some trees and fifes though.
NexGen One. LOL.
"Boss"? "Your Excellency"?
I disagree. You left off the first November. "November Niner Niner Niner November November" is one November worse.
Oh so that's why I didn't know it. I'm not a former controller yet.
Obviously the FAA Administrator doesn't fly around Southern Arizona that much.
Well to be honest I wasn't sure if it was just Safeair or had a number with it, so I did have to look it up. Most of those special callsigns I've flushed long ago but some stick in my memory.
When I first went to school to be a controller, we were required to know what all the "special" call signs were so I've seen "Safeair" on tests but never in reality. Only special call signs I've actually seen were FLC, (flight check) AF1, Justice and SAM. Call signs we see just about every day is Omaha, Flint, and Survey.
I'd rather trainees know how to think 3 minutes ahead and not put two planes together instead of knowing call signs that they probably will never see.
Yeah, worked most of those as well. Plenty of Flight Checks. Worked Open Skies once on approach. At the time it was new and no clue what they were doing.
I was called a lot of things when flying the 414. Mostly I was called a 421. Once while talking to ground, another plane was called to give way to the 421 coming from your right..... I came back with thanks for the promotion but I am still a 414.
