Travis - instructions state to use the last 3 digits of your registration number, so it would be ARF76C.That said
... I posted the reference back to Animal Rescue Flights and in retrospect have to agree with Jeff's take on the article: The ARF call sign is specific to the Animal Rescue Flight organization, and (personally) do not think its appropriate for flights requested through PNP. We have to keep in mind ARF operates on a very different model; flights through ARF are in fact arranged, coordinated and managed by their group, and as pilots you are making flights for the ARF organization. This is not the case for PNP. As stated throughout the site and in their disclaimer on every page, PNP is simply an "electronic meeting place for those seeking to make arrangements for rescue flights. Pilots N Paws does not arrange for rescue flights, coordinate transports and/or rescue animals. Pilots volunteer their time and aircraft to the sending and receiving parties, not to Pilots N Paws." Not a bad thing ... but it is important to keep this in mind as you volunteer for flights.
