everyone knows that the President of the United States travels on an airplane given the name Air Force One.

What about the other V.I.P.'s, what are their flights called ?

The First Lady, can / does she ever fly on AFO with out the president ? What is the flight / plane then called ?

V.P. Cheney - what are his flights called ?

How about other countries presidents ?

Just curious and knew that you fine ATS'ers would probably know the answer.

all i can think of is that a helicopter is designated "Marine One" when the president is in it.

I've searched google a little, must not be using the right terminology...

Here in the UK we have 32 (The Royal) Squadron, which is just the new name for the the old 'Queen's Flight'. Despite its name it is used by senior politicians as well with aircraft ranging from small helicopters to the BAe 146. For long range excursions a standard 10Sqn VC-10 is used.

thanks waynos... but when those flights are being used, what "call signs" are given to them

President Bush's is Air Force One when on his airplane.... Marine One when using the Marine "helo"...

Sorry I don't know the callsigns, or even if they are publically available? Maybe someone else knows?

Well I'm sure most of you know this but theres actually two planes designated Air Force One. And there are three helicopters that fly together designated Marine One. The helocoppters fly together so if you want to shoot one down you have to guess which one the presidents on so you get one shot. Unless I'm mistaken other VIPs usually get flown on Learjets. Don't know if they get special designations.

Air force one has some of the best ECM available plus when it goes in another countries airspace it is usually escorted by F-15 doesn't the Marine One helicopter have ECM? I think also it would look kool if marine one was escorted by Apaches like air force one is escorted by F-15

Ok, this is what I came up with:

Airforce One - designate of any aircraft when POTUS is on board, normal random callsign if POTUS is not on board. This callsign is not limited to the standard 747s the president normally flies in.

Marine One - designate of any helicopter when POTUS is on board

Airforce Two - designate of any aircraft when VPOTUS is on board

Canforce One - designate of any aircraft when Canadian President is on board

Shepherd One - designate of any aircraft when the Pope is on board


Other VIPs just take a standard callsign.
