ASA Dictionary of Aviation Terms
Aviation is an industry full of terms, acronyms and technical language. This book helps users understand all the words, abbreviations, phrases, and disciplines of aviation. The most complete collection of aviation terminology available, this Fourth Edition by industry-expert Dale Crane explains as well as defines more than 10,000 terms and includes nearly 500 illustrations to further define and aid visual recognition. Appendices include useful lists and tables, such as the periodic table of elements, phonetic alphabet, Morse code, and an expanded list of aviation acronyms.
All specific to the aviation industry, the terms have been gathered from the regulations, the Pilot/Controller Glossary from the AIM, and glossaries from government handbooks and manuals. Also, definitions not found in any government publications are included.
