How Fighter Pilots Get Their Funny Callsigns

Air Force Tradition dictates that once a pilot goes Solo he earned himself a call sign.

The pilot has no choice Whether he likes it or not he has to keep his call signs. It’s a cruel reality that fighter pilots get absolutely no say  in the call sign they will be forced to wear for the rest of their lives

The names are debated and then there’s a vote. Tradition also requires a pilot not to complain about his or her call sign

According to tradition while assigning call signs they also do roasting of the fighter pilot

Call Signs are generally understood to be given by one’s peers, based on such things as a unique personal characteristic, variations on one’s name, or a notable or funny event in which one played a part, such as a bad misstatement, prank, or instance of really bad luck.

A pilot (Will Ferrell) explains his unusual call sign to his squad (Mikey Day, Beck Bennett, Chris Redd).
