PrefaceEnglish is the universal language of communication used in civil aviation. Thisdictionary provides the basic vocabulary of terms used by pilots, cabin staff,maintenance crews, ground staff and travellers worldwide. The terms are those usedin everyday work on aircraft, and cover parts of the aircraft, manipulating theaircraft on the ground and in the air, instructions to passengers, conversations withair traffic control, weather, emergencies, etc.Unlike conventional aeronautical dictionaries, the Dictionary of Aviation definesvocabulary often found in conjunction with the purely technical terms as well as thetechnical terms themselves. Simple explanations are presented in simple language,making the dictionary ideal for those working towards a private or commercialpilot’s licence, as well as trainee maintenance engineers and more experiencedprofessionals. We also give examples to show how the words are used in context.We have selected quotations from various specialised magazines to show the wordsand phrases as they are used in real-life situations. The supplements at the back givefurther information in the form of tables.We are particularly grateful to the staff at Qatar Aeronautical College for their helpin the production of the first edition of this dictionary. Thanks are also due toStephen Copeland and Gavin Rowden for specialist advice and helpful suggestionsduring the preparation of this new edition.The information contained in this dictionary is not to be regarded as a substitute forformal training in a given discipline.

Pronunciation GuideThe following symbols have been used to show the pronunciation of the mainwords in the dictionary.Stress is indicated by a main stress mark ( ) and a secondary stress mark ( ) .Note that these are only guides, as the stress of the word changes according to itsposition in the sentence.Vowels ɑ ɒa aυa əaυəɔ ɔ eeəe eυ i iə əuu poolbooktourshutbdðd f hjklmnŋprsʃttʃθvwx easurezone
