Aviation Acronyms is a handy pocket reference to the aerospace industry. It serves as a decoder ring for the myriad of commonly-used (2000+) acronyms used operationally.

This product is an invaluable aid for pilots, students, aviation and space enthusiasts, military historians, anyone working in the aerospace industry, flight-simmers, and anyone visiting aviation or space museums.

In total, there are four databases, which can be turned on and off to help focus searching.

For Aviation, there are three databases:
- Flight: Acronyms widely used in commercial and aviation.
- Boeing: Boeing-specific commercial airplane acronyms.
- Airbus: Airbus-unique acronyms, from the 1980s onward.

Lastly, tying everything together, there is a Tech database, defining basic physical terms, such as "m" for "meter."

We have gone to great pains not only to remove duplicate entries, but also to help design the databases such that you can control which ones to search, helping significantly focus your search results.
