What's the ICAO/IATA code for Air Force 1?

Recommended Posts

The ATC voice call for any USAF aircraft transporting the President is "Air Force 1" and it is annotated as "A1" in the callsign block on a US or ICAO flight plan. Similarly, "A2" is Air Force 2, any USAF aircraft transporting the VP. EXEC1F (Voice call "Executive One Foxtrot") is any aircraft transporting an immediate family member of the President. 89AW SAM missions use "S" and the aircraft tail number, i.e. S80002 is "SAM 80002", an 89AW VC-32A with tail number 80002.And Reach is often not abbreviated "RCH"--for Air Mobility Command acft it's filed as "M" plus the tail number, which owes its roots back to the old "MAC" callsign. So an acft on the strip as "M45765" has a voice call of "Reach 45765" Some missions use the mission number rather than the tail number (for example if several possible acft might be used and a diplomatic clearance will be tied to the call sign).
