schurch379 Posted January 16, 2014 Report Share Posted January 16, 2014 Since June, 2013, there are now 2 CTLS's in Hawaii. I fly mine much more than the other owner. I am flying through / into / out of Classes D, C, & B all of the time, and frequently a Controller will ask me what the heck I am flying? Now; I normally just identify myself as "Light Sport N992SA" ( which is then shortened by Controllers, of course ) , and this is "usually..." good enough to keep it all going. However, today--again, and even though it was so busy I had to wait at P for 20 minutes !! to get clearance to take-off on 22L, the Departure Controller out of Class B Honolulu International when transferred from Tower asked me for my "designation". Ok...so, when he was NOT satisfied with my "Light Sport....." version, and seemed annoyed, he asked are you a fast moving helicopter?? and I gave the whole enchilada "Flight Design CTLS, a light sport.....". Then the guy asked, "...I want a designation... like Cessna, or Beechcraft, or...." So, my question is this: does anyone know a simple "designation" that in your experience will "work" better for me through my Class B, and C, in particular ( but also D ) ....????
