Call Sign Chg; TNCM (Princess Julianna)) & TFFG (Grand Case) Island of St. Maarten.

MaxSez: The present Voice Call Signs for; TNCM & TFFG Duplicate. Both use the same mnemonic “St. Maarten”. (Both are on St Maarten Island; “Grand Case” serves as a major GA satellite for the “Princess” an International port of arrival.) The present duplication lend itself to Controller error/Incident. Accordingly, it is recommended the mnemonic for TNCM be changed to “Princess Julianna” and TFFG be changed to “Grand Case” in the appropriate Communication Menu’s.

That’s because they are both serving st maarteen.

That TNCM and TFFG have the same command name, instead of being independent.


Ditto Nick… Read it again.

St Maarten/Martin= Island
Princess Juliana/Grand Case=Airports
Also note that the island is divided into two halves. (Dutch and French) TNCM serves the Dutch side while Grand Case serves the French side.
