The Aircraft Operations web pages no longer contain directive documents. Instead, "guidance" previously posted here has been consolidated into formal CAP publications published under Members > Publications (e.g., regulations and standards). These pages are now informational in nature. Some documents may still contain language that could be interpreted as being regulatory -- those exceptions will be amended prior to 31 March 2020.

Pilots must ensure that the callsign they use reflects the Flight ID being transmitted by the aircraft's ADS-B system. (See FAA AC 90-114B on ADS-B Operations below.) Because CAP aircraft are flown by other agencies (e.g., CAP-USAF using "PARDXX" and maintenance facilities using "NXXXXX"), it is highly likely that you will encounter instances when an aircraft's ADS-B Flight ID has been changed to something other than CAPXXXX. This necessitates diligence in both checking and, when required, resetting Flight IDs. Using a callsign that does not match the ADS-B Flight ID will result in the FAA sending a Non-Performing Equipment (NPE) report to CAP/LG, but more importantly mismatches increase controller workload and could result in you being denied access to certain airspace.
