As in all fields of work, an unmanageable number of abbreviations are used today in aviation for terms, definitions, commands, standards and technical descriptions. This applies in general to the areas of aeronautical communication, navigation and surveillance, cockpit and air traffic control working positions, passenger and cargo transport, and all other areas of flight planning, organization and guidance. In addition, many abbreviations are used more than once or have different meanings in different languages. In order to obtain an overview of the most common abbreviations used in air traffic management, organizations like EUROCONTROL, FAA, DWD and DLR have published lists of abbreviations in the past, which have also been included in this document. In addition, abbreviations from some larger international projects related to aviation have been included to provide users with a directory as complete as possible. Using a general internet search engine will of course always provide many hits when searching for abbreviations, but it is often not entirely clear whether the abbreviation is from aviation or another area of expertise. ATM-specialized internet sites offer online directories, which, however, can only be accessed with an existing internet connection. At this point, the Air Traffic Management Abbreviation Compendium would like to offer a supplement to the existing reference possibilities.
