ANN APRIL 1st "SPECIAL" EDITION: 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.

BRAS is the curious tendency of certain federal lawmakers to
shame users of corporate aircraft into giving up their jets...

private Airbus A380s, apparently) to fly their families, friends,
constituents, and good old-fashioned under-the-table special
interest donors around the country.
