This time due to two female passengers who were intoxicated and lit cigarette, which triggered the smoke alarm. Two fighter jets escorted the plane back to Toronto.

Couple things...

1. Say "Skyhawk", or say "Cessna", or say "November."[/b] Not one or more - just one.

2. You're supposed to wait for the controller to shorten your callsign. Since the controller is also supposed to use your full callsign as you stated it when establishing communications... it's supposed to legally take a couple of transmissions before it gets shortened to the last three characters.

EDIT: I'd also argue that adding 4 more syllables ("information") to clarify why you're spouting off a random letter of the alphabet (and not, for example, referencing a taxiway, air carrier, etc.) is also more valuable than a transmission that's only a bit shorter.

Same goes for identifying direction of desired "departure." The potential delay caused by confusion ("Why is he talking about a SouthWest aircraft? Which SouthWest aircraft? ....... Oh, wait, he means VFR to the SW. Got it.") simply isn't worth trying to shave off a few more syllables. Not in my mind, anyway.

I was looking back at the voting options and saw "nervous flyer" and I thought "...the only thing I'm nervous about is missing my flight...and getting airsick."  I'm never getting on plane with rear-mounted engines again...especially if my seat is in the back of the plane.  Sorry, had to say it.

When at a tower controlled airport I like to keep the radio transitions short as possible here is an example
Northeast ground Skyhawk N6611D… Northeast ground would reply back…. Then I would reply  11D, Atlantic, Delta (Atis), Southeast. Is this OK? And what do you think about it?

It is to my understanding that retirement age is 65 but is that just part 121 operations or all types of operations including part 135?

Besides the fact that it's another Dreamliner with issues, you mean?
