Callsign tips

Do you change your callsign for every flight depending on the airline or just leave it as one thing?

My callsign is MCH-98. And it will stay that way. I don’t change it for every flight.

If I am flying for my VA(s), I change it. If not, I leave it as “STARLEY”.
In the past, I looked up for the real flight and I changed the callsign to the RL-flight’s callsign. But I don’t do that anymore xD

What I used to do is change the airline for every flight but now it’s just N949DM and I just leave it that way

My callsign depends on the airline I fly. If I fly an Alaska Airlines plane, my callsign will be Alaska ###.

For GA, my callsign would be BIGBERT.

If I am flying for a VA, I would fly with the respective callsign I was assigned.

If I am simulating real-world flights, I would change my callsign to the exact callsign the real world flight has. @Captain_JR reminded me about this

I prefer to keep it the same.

Keep in mind that if you are enquiring about your ghosting report that we need to know your callsign at the time of the ghost. If you change it every flight it could cause a delay in resolution.

Personally i change mine for every individual flight i make.
I use of real life callsigns, an example would be: Qatari 702
I switch/change callsign whenever i’ve landed and continue to use the same plane for a different route.
Exception: I land at a airport but in real life the plane makes this stop then continues to its final destination with the same callsign, an example would be: Qantas 1 (YSSY-WSSS-EGLL)

I’ve done this ever since i began playing IF Live, so it’s something i’ll stick to forever, most likely.
[Note: I don’t use of real life call signs for Cargo planes but i do change them as well after landing unless it’s a stopover like QF1 as mentioned above]

Same as Starley. If I am flying a personal flight, my callsign will be HP-10. As for if you want the realism, I recommend changing to whatever airline your flying

I always use real life callsigns according to the airline and the route that i flew,if i’m doing a flight that doesnt exist (for example:PHNL-EGLL on a BA 789) then i just use speedbird with random numbers…

Oh yeah, I also would change my callsign to the real world callsign if I were to be following a real-world flight in Infinite Flight.

I change my callsign for every flight I do.
I use the airlines callsign and then I apply the flightnr. The real one. 😉

Example: SAS flight from Oslo to London
Scandinavian 803

I use always LN-EHS
Because LN is my country code and EHS is a combination of first and last name

I use 907 for the numbers in my callsign. If it’s GA, then I just use N907. I change my airline callsign to whatever airline’s livery I’m flying with.

I obviously change it for VA’s, but other than that, it’s CX003.

Using the real-world callsign adds the extra realism 😍
Makes the flight a whole lot more enjoyable, because it feels like i’m flying the real life thing.

Right i’m using the Callsign: Scandinavian 940 for my flight from KLAX to ESSA and i don’t usually replicate departure time but i’m actually 1h-1.5h behind the irl plane, feels like i’m actually flying to Arlanda 😁
