Great Aviation Dictionary
I have the paper copy also, but I wanted something easy to carry. I put this on my iPhone to always have it with me. It will let you put a 2nd copy on your iPad for free. It includes a section for abbreviations. Just what I needed.
great reference tool!
necessary reference for the aspiring (or perspiring!) aviation professional, as well as the wanna-be know-it-alls, and arm-chair captains.
Missing a lot of definitions and acronyms. Needs to focus on the WORLD of aviation, not just the US. Perhaps you could add an option for users to suggest terms and their definition, similar to Wikipedia. Keep it growing!
