Glossary

English is the universal language of communication used in both civil and general aviation. Our glossary provides the basic vocabulary of terms used by pilots, cabin staff, maintenance crews, ground staff and air-traffic-control. The terms are those used in everyday work on aircraft, and cover parts of the aircraft, manipulating the aircraft both on the ground and in the air, instructions to passengers, conversations with air traffic control, weather, emergencies etc – and are all based on ICAO Aviation English.

Simple explanations are presented in simple language, making this glossary ideal for students who are working towards a private or commercial pilot’s licence, as well as trainee maintenance engineers, air traffic control officers and more experienced professionals.
