If callsign is the double digit code, then Aerocaribe is QA, just like Mexicana is MX or Aeromexico is AM


Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

Pzurita1:

The callsign of an airline is the nickname the traffic controllers affectionately adopt to certain airlines. For example, Pan Am's aircraft were worldwide know by controllers as 'Clippers'. Clipper 203, Clipper 207, etc, etc...

America West's callsign is 'Cactus' given the fact that its ops are based in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. ValuJet's callsign was 'critter' for that little airplane bug they used as their logo. Some airlines just don't have them. I don't know what AeroCaribe's callsign is - if they do have one.

Aerocaribe's callsign is CARIBE. At least that's its callsign within Mexico, I've noticed that some smaller Mexican carriers have an "informal" callsign for flights in Mexico, while they use a different callsign when flying to another country. For example, AeroLitoral (AeroMexico's regional airline) has COSTERA as its callsign in Mexico, but it uses AEROMEXICO when flying into the US. Anyway, I believe Aerocaribe's only international routes are to Cuba, don't know if they have an occasional flight into Miami, though.

No.

Callsigns are airline identifiers registered and assigned by a countries respective aviation authority. This link: http://www.faa.gov/atpubs/CNT/cam.htm is an example of such a registry. Each callsign (or telephony) is registered to a particular airline along with a 2 or 3 digit identifier. A traffic controller cannot simply give an airline a "nickname".

1-4-7. USE OF AIRCRAFT COMPANY THREE-LETTER IDENTIFIER AND/OR TELEPHONY DESIGNATOR ASSIGNMENT.

a. Authorized three-letter identifiers and/or telephony designators are valid only when aircraft are flown for company business in accordance with the provisions of the FAR under which an operating certificate was obtained from the FAA.



Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.
