Ive seen quite a bit of people in europe use the callsign starting with SHT... I mean amagain controllors trying to say that with out saying the S word!

what do you guys think? .wallop them? or not allow it on flightplans. theres a couple online now SHT8A and SHT8Y 

i personally dont like to swear and think its wrong and should be banned on the nettwork. what do you guys think? I would like to hear any suppivisors commets too!

 

best regards

??? SHT is a long-standing callsign from the real world. It is "Shuttle" which is reserved for British Airways' domestic flights within the UK. There is nothing to be banned. Please make your research before spitting out accusations.

There are other callsigns/registrations that are 100% legal to be used, because they also exist in the real world, such as D-ILDO, D-ICKS, G-AAYE etc...

if a long established real world callsign would make you "go wild", then I think you need to re-evaluate whether you come to the UK and control.   In 8 years of controlling in the UK, I've never once:

- had the occasion to use a swear word instead of "SHUTTLE" or
- heard any other controller in the UK use it directed at me or any other pilot using it

Why would you go wild? SHT stands for "Shuttle". Everything else is just in your imagination, get over it. It's like "FCK" might be read as a bad swear word, but in Germany it's the abbreviation of a soccer club...

A prime example in the Scandinavian countries

There used to be an Alaskan airline called Peninsula Air whose three-letter FAA identifier was PEN. They used to have a flight number of 15. I'll let your imaginations fill in the rest. My understanding, based on the controllers I knew who worked that particular flight, is that the resulting callsign was unintentional and short-lived, but still hilarious.

Imagine they used an alphanumeric callsign, e.g. PEN1S. Who wants to be the first one to try it? 😁
