Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Terms for Use on the Flight Deck
This document is intended to establish preferred abbreviations and acronyms for terms used on panels, controls, displays, instruments, placards, and markings. The recommendations apply to equipment used by crew members in the flight deck of transport aircraft.
Rationale: The rationale for this revision was to update the terminology to reflect changes to flight deck technology since ARP-4105B and AS-425C were published. At the same time, many obsolete terms were deleted, mostly dealing with piston-powered airplanes and decommissioned navigation systems (such as LORAN and OMEGA).
