    The way Vpilot is setup is similar to real world.

    For example you wouldn't see American Airlines 123 on a flight strip.
    You'd see AAL123.
    The AAL is known as a Trigraph.
    Trigraphs are similar to airport ICAO or IATA codes and relate to the airline name.

    Most big airlines also have Callsigns.
    BMR (BRITISH MIDLAND REGIONAL) MIDLAND
    BAW (BRITISH AIRWAYS) SPEEDBIRD
    TCX (THOMAS COOK AIRLINES) KESTREL
    AWE (US AIRWAYS) CACTUS

    So you wouldn't hear US AIRWAYS 123 on liveatc.net, you would hear Cactus123 etc etc

    Maybe you could make a Trigraph up.
    PRF (Professor)

    When you use a real world trigraph on SimLink, controllers using software such as Euroscope and VRC will see the Trigraph convert into the real world callsign on their screen.

    If you make one that doesn't exist then controllers would see PRF and call you by the callsign you first contact them as.

    All Callsigns can be found on this website.

    Think of it this way Prof,

    How many characters in an aircraft's registration?

    Thats the callsign in vPilot.

    Get creative! I'm boring and shorten mine to NOVA
    Others use LI0N or HA1L ....

    Safe skies

    a quick vPilot question

    Hello all,
    I was wondering...Professor seems to be too long a callsign to enter in vPilot, and I'd really prefer using "The Professor". Is there a way to get a few more characters so that I can have a longer name display during our group flights?
