How do you apply for a callsign? Instead of the ol' Tango-November, I would like to be able to use one that gets our name over the airways. Is it an FCC thing? Any help is appreciated.

I believe you apply to the FAA. Call your FSDO and they should give you a heads up on it. I know it does take awhile and you have to give them 3 choices. Ours took about 6-7 months to get through and we got assigned our third choice.

My company just did it and it took about 6 months or so. I guess it got screwed up once with the FEDS as they tired to get it straight with ATC. Just be prepared to explain the name to controllers for the foreseeable future, even if you file the phonetic in the remarks. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I thought you could just request what you want to be called in the remarks section. I know that your looking for a call sign like "Hoppa Jet 123" or "Flight Ops 123" But can some one clarify that for me, thanks.

Yeah, you're gonna have to go through a bit of paperwork with the FEDS in order to get a permanent call sign. Once you are approved for the name (Options, Flex, HoppaJet) then you can file whatever number you want after it once it gets going. They also ask that once it is approved you file the phoenetic of the name in the remarks section. Just contact your local FSDO. I believe the name will be ICAO recognized once you jump through the hoops. Hope this helps a bit.
