New 14FTW Call Sign

The T-6A Texan training aircraft from the 14FTW based at the Columbus AFB are a common sight in the skies around here as they fly various low level aircraft routes here in the mountains.  The normal call sign we have heard them use over the last couple of years has been Cutlas ##. That may have changed now. Starting 10/1 at the start of the new fiscal year those crews are using the Flite ## call sign. Not sure if this is their new x-country call or maybe a new call for a specific item in their training matrix. Time will tell.
