(I’m new here. If this belongs in another category, since support seems to be mainly tech related, please direct me to where I need to be.)
To get us all on the same page; when it comes to setting call signs I have no clue what I’m doing. Long time interested in flying, no knowledge when it comes to the non-piloting bits.
I want to set my callsign to a name I’ve decided on, but want to keep it somewhat realistic and believable. I might even say I want to make it ‘valid’ or ‘correct’ in true-to-life terms.
I’m intending to act as military aircraft - fighters, carriers, whatever - under the name ‘AURORA’. However, my issue is that if I simply make my callsign ‘AURORA’, it sounds unprofessional and I don’t think it conveys information about my aircraft in the way that a callsign should.
I’m simply looking for some help on setting it up. Should I be using an airline or GA sign? What other text (if any) should I include along with the name I want?
Help/advice will be greatly appreciated. I hope to try out flying online for the first time soon.
Thank you for your time,
