Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Terms for Use on the Flight Deck
Published November 19, 2012 by SAE International in United States
This document is intended to establish preferred abbreviations and acronyms for terms used on panels, controls, displays, instruments, placards, and markings. The recommendations apply to equipment used by crew members in the flight deck of transport aircraft.
The rationale for this revision was to update the terminology to reflect changes to flight deck technology since ARP-4105B and AS-425C were published. At the same time, many obsolete terms were deleted, mostly dealing with piston-powered airplanes and decommissioned navigation systems (such as LORAN and OMEGA).

The SAE S-7 Committee was formed to fulfill a need for the air transport industry to monitor itself with respect to uniformity of cockpit design for air transport aircraft.Standardization of the flight deck is becoming increasingly important to both operators and manufacturers. The objective is to design for the operational efficiencies necessary to maintain a competitive and viable air transportation industry. This must be accomplished while maintaining or improving the existing levels of operating efficiencies and safety. The S-7 Committees is committed to serving this purpose. This is an international committee of members representing major aircraft manufacturers, airlines from United States, Europe, and the Far East, as well as equipment designers, manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and other interested parties.
