Difference between Super, Heavy, Flight of 1 (etc)

Another basic question,
But what is the difference between Heavy, Super, Flight of 1, Flight of 2, Flight of 3 and so on at the end of your call sign?
Hope to hear.

Heavy is aircraft is used with aircraft such as the 747, 777, A330, A340, and other large aircraft.
Super is the term used for an A380 flying in American airspace. In other parts of the world it’s labeled as “Heavy”
Flight of _ means there are a certain amount of pilots flying the same route, most likely in a formation.
Hope this helps!

No they wouldn’t. They wouldn’t have any title after their flight number.

Say that there would be a FlyBe Erj. To communicate they would use “Jersey 346” for example. The same thing goes when in a 737 or other “medium weighted” aircraft.
