Customisation of Callsigns for Virtual Airlines & Organisations
The idea is easy, the concept simple. I propose VAs be given the right to have a limited number of personalised and private callsigns for it’s members flights.
Well, most of our communities airlines operate using the general aviation callsigns to give themselves an identity and to help advertise their VA. Using Infinite Flight Air Force as an example, they use IFAF### for callsigns because the “Air Force” callsigns are used by many people far and wide to intercept aircraft and “troll” or harass airliners.
How Would it Work?
Access rights could be managed at the lowest level, either by trusted VA owners or their nominated subordinate. It would be a basic type and submit system to be approved by IFVARB moderators to ensure safety and security of the communities policies and standards.
So, for a virtual airline such as Delta VA, who utilise DLVA### at the moment. They could submit the use of “Delta Virtual Flight ##” which would be read verbatim by the system, as opposed to the current “Delta Victor Foxtrot ##”.
Would all VAs qualify?
No, a grading system would be introduced based on a variety of aspects meaning those more permanent airlines would qualify for the privilege.
- Minimum Members
- Concrete Infrastructure
- Minimum active period.
But How would VAs administrate the use of callsigns?
Like having access to IFATC or Expert servers, you could add a simple permission to the account. So the CEOs can dictate who gets access to their callsigns either direct or through the IFVARB.
