Z-MAN

Last Name Is German, nearly unpronounceable for English speaker, my CDR did the intro and "stumbled" trying to pronounce it the result was.."Z.. what?" And so I got stuck with Z-Man

Zeke

A reference to the A6M kamikaze planes (sometimes called "Zeros" too). Apparently he was a little aggressive in the T-38's in UPT.

Zen

Eagle driver, got it when he squeezed off a shot with his gun during training and hit the target - without using the computer - said it reminded his squadmates of luke using the force to kill the death star

Ziffel

Always HOGGING the targets. Named after the pig from the TV show "Green Acres".

Zing

'He got the nickname when making the transition from flying the subsonic A-10 'Warthog' attack aircraft to the faster and more electronically sophisticated F-16CJ. 'There are a few more things to look at in the F-16 cockpit,' he said. 'They called me 'Zing' because I was kind of all over the place initially.''

ZIPI

Zafrany is my name, I always need to close my zip so my staff call me ZIPI

Zipper

'Zipper got into a argument with his girlfriend at a bar. As she attempted to leave in her car, 'Zipper' stood in her path. Somewhat intoxicated, the pilot lost his balance and fell onto the woman's car. As he slid off the car, the zipper of the pilot's flight suit gouged the hood's finish. Not only did he lose the girl, but it cost him $1,500 to fix her car.'

Zulu

'There was a quiz on marking various timezones. Scott O'Grady put down his answer, but used the wrong time zone. The time zone he was supposed to use was 'Zulu', or GMT. Hence, his callsign.'

Zulu

Always got time calcs wrong in flightschool
