Callsign-id

From VPOIDS Documentation

Callsign IDs

Pilots flying charitable flights can choose to use a callsign when filing flight plans, requesting flight following, and so forth. One example is NGF. The FAA has requested that organizations assign a unique ID for each pilot which will help them contact the pilot if necessary. Using the last three digits of the aircraft registrations did not meet these requirements.

Assigning the ID

In the pilot view, there is a field called callsign ID. Add a unique four-digit number for the pilot, which he or she will then use as their callsign. For example, if the pilot is assigned number 1002, he or she would use NGF1002 as the call sign.
