Fly Maui


Jul 7, 2020

From the first week of training, student pilots are thrown into a crazy new world of pilot speak. Aside from radio communication itself, there’s a big world of aviation acronyms and mnemonics to learn. It can be daunting at first, but the pilot soon learns that these become helpful flows in flight and memory aids when studying for the next checkride or flight review. On this episode, we’re walking through a big list of common aviation acronyms… welcome to our study session!
