    Re: ATC Acronyms/Definitions

    By acronyms, I'm guessing you mean "contractions." Here is a link to every single contration used by the FAA or ICAO. All you have to do is post a link to this in your FAQ section...unless you have the time to type out 487 pages of them.

    Contractions - FAA Order JO 7340.2

    For a list of common definitions that Pilots/Controllers use...try the Pilot/Controller Glossary

    Duuuuuude! You were a mod here back when I in processed in Peach Tree City at A80. Welcome back. How is retirement treating you? 17 years, 4 months, 22 days and 22 hours, not that I'm counting.

    Haven't retired. Still working 6 day weeks, but now its 4-10's and two of my three rdo's are OT. Retirement date is 9/18 this year as long as one of my applications to Dubai, the UAE or Iraq comes through. Nothing's changed here....just had 7 trainees this week either wash out or remove themselves from training.
