I was flying a Lear with a callsign of Coyote going into Midland, Texas.
Me: “Fort Worth Center, Coyote 123, request EASYY for the straight‑in Runway 28 in Midland.”
Center: “Coyote 123, cleared direct EASYY.”
Me: “Direct EASYY, thank you. That’ll make it easy for 28. (Laughter)”
Center: “Coyote 123, contact Midland approach. Ya’ll take it easy. And thanks—haven’t had that much fun in a long time.”
