FAA Changes to Call Sign Requirements Affect COMPASSION Call Sign
Beginning December 15, 2019, a new and unique COMPASSION CMF call sign will be required for each pilot who wishes to use CMF. The previous method of filing using a portion of the aircraft's tail number is no longer authorized.
ACA will issue new discrete COMPASSION call signs to verified pilots of authorized organizations upon request by the pilot. Click this link to REGISTER FOR CALL SIGN.
What is Public Benefit Flying?
Using their own time and general aviation aircraft, pilot volunteers from the many public benefit flying organizations help hundreds of people each month. They and many other non-flying volunteers work to transport patients in need to facilities where they are able to receive medical attention they might otherwise have to do without. Many groups also play a significant role providing disaster and emergency relief, serving our veterans, flying for environmental support, transporting animals, taking youth on educational flights, or performing other community service missions.
