Aero-Terms are designed to be a daily reminder of the terms,
names, acronyms and explanations of the unique language that
populates the aviation world. Aerospace, sport aviation, fixed
wing, helo, you name it... it's all fair game.
Aero-Terms should serve as a quick but intriguing reminder
of the terms you may use every day, or an introduction to an
aspects of the Aero-World you may not yet be familiar with. ANN
also encourages readers to go beyond the FMI link, and further
research any intriguing terms.
Suggestions for future Aero-Terms are
ALWAYS welcome, as are additions or
discussion of the explanations given for each Aero-Term.

rocketry and much early development of rocket technology by JPL,
Aerojet, Goddard, and others was devoted to JATO applications.

inclusion in the Darwin Awards.
