Default RAAF 737s

Hi all,
Just moved backed to Aussie and have heard the RAAF B737's in and out of Sydney using different callsigns (Enoy, Regent and Wisdom today). I know they have assigned to SQN34 in Canberra but how are the callsigns asigned (im assuming the pilots have their own number as the flight number?).
Are both 737's in Australia at the moment as I heard ScoMo arrive back on the A330 earlier as Aussie 346.
Cheers
Mark

Hi Mark

RAAF VIP squadron callsigns change depending on task and passengers, specifically:
Envoy is used for a VIP such as PM etc
Regent is used when itís a royal family member or rep
Wisdom is the squadron callsign for air work etc

All of that information is woefully incorrect, sorry.

I know it’s a long shot and the chance are very slim.
Is there any cabin photos of the RAAF 737BBJ, KC30 vip, Falcon 7x and the now retired Challenger 604.
Surely they are not as nice as some other government and royal aircraft that have cabin photos online.

Apologies but task & callsign breakdown information is not in the public domain for a reason. I'm sure you can understand why.

The callsigns allocated to 34SQN can be found in the Airservices Manual of Air Traffic Services, on page 6.2.2.1 however.
