I am new to FlightGear and need a call sign. I know you're not supposed to give one to yourself, so can you guys help me out. I will pick the best one.

Why not chosing one for yourself and using it? There are currently no rules (besides perferably not chosing an already taken one). It is appreciated not to select something offensive or rude.

Welcome Ty (?) !

Actually you ARE supposed to pick one yourself. Just make sure no-one else uses yours, so there's no (or little) risk of one of you being kicked from the server when someone else joins. And if you want to tracker your flights with the tracker, it's also useful to have a "unique" callsign. You can check if a callsign is already used via http://fgtracker.ahven.eu/modules/fgtracker/

Cheers,
