Interesting article - What does the word "heavy" mean in an aircraft's call sign?

I came across this interesting article which informs us about the use of the terms “heavy”, “super”, etc. I thunk that some parts of it could also be useful for controllers if they want to add separation as it happens in real life.

You Should put this in #real-world-aviation section so it doesn’t get put down. Personally, I use it either when im doing a long haul or I am using a huge aircraft like the A380 or 747

Will do so. I was wondering whether the category needs to be re-assigned as suggested.

Also, this could also probably be in tutorials for when to use the heavy callsign or super

For some reason, I’m unable to change the category.
