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

Doncha hate when this happens? When an aircraft aborts a landing
after it has already started its landing approach and has to follow
a set path to leave the airspace surrounding the terminal. GPS
(hooray technology!) adds more flexibility to its path back out of
the terminal area, easing congestion and airspace conflicts with
other aircraft in the area.
