Dictionary of Aeronautical Terms
Dale Crane's ultimate reference book now contains more than 11,000 accurate, aviation-specific terms and definitions.
This new 5th edition has been updated to reflect the latest operations and practices, with terms gathered from 14 CFR Part 1 and other regulations, the Pilot/Controller Glossary, glossaries from government handbooks and manuals, as well as definitions not found in government publications. Nearly 500 illustrations further define and aid visual recognition of the terms, and useful tables and lists are included in appendices.
In an industry of acronyms and technical language, this complete dictionary is an essential reference book for anyone involved with aviation - administrators, pilots, A&Ps, colleges and universities, air traffic controllers, manufacturers, engineers, government agencies, airlines, and corporate flight departments, as well as newcomers to the industry, and those who speak English as a second language.
The ASA Dictionary of Aeronautical Terms, now in its Fifth Edition, is a vital reference tool that belongs on every aviation bookshelf. Softcover, 6" x 9", 784 pages.
