Call Signs

With SFC getting larger, do we want to deal with another tradition when it comes to warrior aviators - the callsign.  It is a part of the culture and part of the tradition of flying.  Some restrictions would be that it not be too offensive (not only to the person, but also because of SL EULA) or not too humiliating.

If we do go down that path, how do we go about it - assigning the names.

a) chosen by the person themselves - How many Mavericks and Iceman would we end up with, ugh.
b) chosen by other people - Don't have a background that could help in naming a FNG.
c) a combination of the two - some members of the SFC create a short list after questioning a new pilot - try and get an idea of their AV background and history. The FNG gets to choose from the list.
d) an idea that someone else has, that is better than the first three.

What do other people think of the whole idea?

By all means, just remember to document it and send it in to your division officer (Oka Hancroft) so you get credit for the work.

the idea i sent to oka is for a few training sessions for each new pilot
and for their superiors to see what thier tendencies are and use that to get their call signs (( like hot dog on BSG))

"Goose!  This Bogie's all over me!"

Whatever proposal the Callsign project team comes up with will need to be approved by SFC Command, so you can all rest assured...

to cut a long speech short, it will be all good :)
