aviation abbreviations

Abbreviations in the aviation industry are created by coding the terms used in many areas. Passengers come across with abbreviations in the form of airport names. For example, SAW stands for Sabiha Gökçen Airport. People within the sector use abbreviations more. By doing that, people save time during written or oral communications. As every second is of vital significance in this industry, coding is an indispensable part of it. Alphabet is also used in a different way in aviation. A is Alpha, B is Bravo and C is defined as Charlie and letter create codes when they used together. To illustrate: A/D means an aerodrome or also known as an airport, ACC stands for area control center.
