CALL SIGN :
An aircraft call sign is a group of alphanumeric characters used to identify an aircraft in air-ground communications.
3 different types of aircraft call sign
- TYPE a
- TYPE b
- TYPE c
Call signs may be abbreviated only in the manner shown below (see table).Type (a) The first character of the registration and at least the last two characters of the full call sign (the name of the aircraft manufacturer or model may be used in place of the first character);Type (b) The telephony designator of the aircraft operating agency, followed by at least the last two characters of the call sign; Type (c) No abbreviated form.
Most airline call signs belong to type (c) for which there is no abbreviation. Therefore, abbreviations such as “1234” or “Rushair 34” are not permissible. An aircraft is not permitted to change its call sign during flight, except temporarily on the instruction of an air traffic control unit in the interests of safety.
