Aviation Safety Letter 4/2004

What is the Difference Between Air-Ground Communication and Air-to-Ground Communication?

The answer can be found in the Glossary For Pilots and Air Traffic Services Personnel!

In 1987, the Canada Airspace Review recommended the development of a glossary of Canadian aviation terms in order to avoid misunderstandings between pilots, controllers, flight service specialists and other aerodrome users. This glossary, now known as the Glossary for Pilots and Air Traffic Services Personnel, is a joint initiative between Transport Canada, the Department of National Defence, and NAV CANADA. As part of the A.I.P. Canada, it serves mainly to highlight the differences between Canadian terminology and definitions, and those from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). We invite you to consult this valuable document, and share it with your friends and colleagues. You can access the Glossary online, or download it from the following address: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/opssvs/secretariat-terminology-glossary-744.htm.
