Navigating government documents is a task that requires considerable knowledge of specialized terms and acronyms. This required knowledge nearly amounts to knowing a completely different language. To those who are not fluent, the task can be overwhelming, as federal departments fill their documents with acronyms, abbreviations, and terms that mean little or nothing to the outsider. Would you be able to make sense of a document that described how the COTR reports to the CO regarding compliance with FAR, GPRA, SARA, and FASA? (This is a common procedure in government contracting.) Would you have any clue what was being referred to if you came across MIL-STD-129P? (It is the new standard for Military Shipping Label Requirements.) The sheer number of such terms makes mastering them nearly impossible. But now, these terms and their definitions are within reach. A Guide to Federal Terms and Acronyms presents a glossary of key definitions used by the Federal Government. This reference guide is comprehensive, covering the most common terms, acronyms, and abbreviations used by each major Federal Government agency. And it is also accessible, organized in a logical, easy-to-use format. Users can look up terms and acronyms by department or subject matter, making this a quick reference for translating government language. This is an essential tool for anyone who works with federal government information.

Intended for anyone who reads aviation literature, this guide contains over 12,000 shorthand expression used in aviation, past and present. The coverage is inclusive of general and technical terms, civil and military, also aeronautical, bureaucratic, commercial, geographical, mechanical, medical, meteorological, operational, and organizational terms — as related to aviation. All the abbreviations, acronyms, and alphabets — contractions or shorthand expressions, including mnemonics and even codes — were found in current and past aviation literature, including articles, books, charts, handbooks, manuals, maps, placards, weather reports, and notices to airmen. Often terms appeared without definition, in the apparent assumption that the meaning was general knowledge, and it may have been to the intended audience at that time. Many of the expressions stand for more than one thing, like MEL being "minimum equipment list" or "multi-engine landplane." TC could be "top of cylinder," "training center," "Trans Caribbean Airways," "Transport Canada," "transportation corps," "troop carrier," "tropical cyclone," "true course," "turbocharged," "turn coordinator," or "type certificate" — depending upon the context. Annotations in this volume are to help identify context. Some annotations place terms in time; for example, when did AFCC refer to the Air Force Combat Command, when to the Air Force Communications Command, and when to Air Force Cyberspace Command?
