Easy as a b c

Recommended Posts

 

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today published the much anticipated update to the phonetic radio alphabet. With English as the official language of aviation, the updated alphabet is meant to encourage easier global communications.

“This state-of-the-art enhancement will improve flight safety and increase efficiency with regard to radio communications,” said FAA Assistant Administrator Bailey Edwards .

The new alphabet will go into effect on 01 JULY 2019 as follows:

  • A – Aisle
  • B – Bdellium
  • C – Czar
  • D – Django
  • E – Eye
  • F – Foxtrot
  • G – Gnat
  • H – Hour
  • I – Inside
  • J – Jalapeno
  • K – Knight
  • L – Lima
  • M – Mnemonic
  • N – Nancy
  • O – Oedipus
  • P – Pterodactyl
  • Q – Quran
  • R – Romeo
  • S – Sierra
  • T – Tsunami
  • U – Uniform
  • V – Victor
  • W – Wreath
  • X – Xylophone
  • Y – Yankee
  • Z – Zulu

    So we are thinking that you anarchists can come up with "appropriate" sailing terms to match the letters - have at it!

WreathTsunami, Foxtrot?  Actually I'm just disappointed that they couldn't find words for all of them :-)

At the bottom of the article is a hashtag #satire.

 

No way that they'd have words which sound different from the alphabet. Mnemonic sounds like "Nemonic" and Pterodactyl sounds like "Terodactyl"

Now this story is true for sure... what a brilliant idea...

http://aviationdaily.news/2019/03/27/facebook-purchases-the-ntsb-crash-investigations-completed-in-minutes-now/

 

Quote

 

Historically, it has taken the NTSB 12 – 18 months to release the cause of an aircraft incident to the public. They have always done a very thorough job and given very detailed information as to the cause of an incident, but much like tracking down a knowledgeable employee to help you at the Home Depot, they just aren’t fast enough for this generations’ short attention spans. 

The NTSB has decided to step down as the primary investigator of airplane crashes. Now, upon going to the NTSB website, visitors will be redirected to Facebook. The users will primarily be sent to aviation groups like “The Aviators Lounge” or “Pilot Social Network”.

The NTSB was quoted as saying, “We just aren’t as fast as these social media groups. We believe it is because we spend 1000s of man hours looking into many aspects of a crash, including scrutinizing flight data recorders, cockpit voice recorders, weather, pilot history and more.”

““We spent days digging through a mud puddle in Houston looking for the black box when Facebook had already decided, ‘Dude it’s totally a suicide,” or possibly, ‘Wind shear! No question. I have heard that word a lot so its gotta be wind shear’.”

“Recently, the 737 Max suffered 2 incidents. We stopped looking into both once we saw Facebook, where people decided – It’s totally the MACS system, or, The pilot wasn’t trained, or It is culture thing, or Boeing bought Foreflight and now their planes are crashing.”

“We’re just not able to get the answers as fast these online experts, so we are turning it over to them.

Thank you for the elucidation, Aristotle.

L - Lima can obviously be updated to recognize the rich heritage bestowed upon L by the Welsh.  May I humbly suggest:

L - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

and for marine broadcasters and flight controllers , here is a quick lesson in pronunciation given by a charming welsh girl

In stark contrast, when the UK parliament were asked today if they wanted to leave the EU or remain.....they answered with a resounding No.
