Avionics & Certification Acronyms – 17 Page List Compiled by AFuzion Engineers

6 Apr



AFuzion Inc. engineers from four continents have compiled the newest 17-page list of avionics and aviation certification acronyms.  Intended for internal avionics certification training purposes, AFuzion has decided to release the list publicly to promote aviation safety worldwide.  Says Mr. Jack Jones, AFuzion lead engineer and project manager: “I manage 15+ AFuzion engineers in the USA and Europe and we’re told we speak Avi-Lish, which is really Aviation and English combined. As a former test pilot, we really have our own language in aviation.  To make sure we all speak the same language along with our clients and certification authorities, we made this list over the last year. My AFuzion counterparts in Asia, Australia, and the Middle East helped so it’s truly international aviation English. We think it’s really cool and useful. We recently completed an AFuzion DO-178C Gap Analysis for a Fortune 500 client and we included it in the report – we’ll do the same for our AFuzion DO-254 Gap Analysis so everyone gets the most value from those”

Adds Chris Jackson, AFuzion principal “I’m really proud of our engineers for building this. They worked with 10-12 AFuzion client companies so it includes those company’s input also. I’m a litigation attorney and appreciate the need for common and complete terminology. As a business-jet pilot in my spare time I also appreciate the need for consistency and safety – these terms are used worldwide. Even though I don’t pretend to understand them all, I’m glad they’re now available worldwide. We will add this to our AFuzion DO-178C training agendas: http://afuzion.com/avionics-training/workshops/avionics-software-do-178c-training-class/
