Many of you might know this, but getting a call sign when you become a solo pilot is a pretty big deal. Often, it’s not a good for you though.

Oftentimes, you get called something you really don’t like and the more you don’t like it the better it is for all your aviator friends.
“If you like it then great, you get to keep it. If you don’t like it then great, you get to keep it.”-Pilot
Some of these get really creative as you’ll see and these guys and gals take it seriously. They put up a whiteboard, brainstorm and really put thought into this. After all, it needs to be good enough to possibly haunt an aviator for the rest of his or her life.
Check it out. This is actually really fun to watch.
