    Acronyms and Glossary of Terms!

    (I am not the original poster of this I am just relaying it to people on stuckmic :-) enjoy. Original Post can be found here.)

    To make this thread more intelligible I would ask that replies be limited to additional terms that should be on this list or corrections to terms already listed here! that way it doesn't take you a year to look through 5000 posts to find the one term you're hoping for.. and it doesn't take me a year to search 5000 posts for a correction or addition. Pretty pretty please?

    ***please note that these are terms found in the forums.. not the huge list of FAA certified anagrams from ATC websites and whatnot.***

    ARTCC: Air Route Traffic Control Center
    ASAP: Automated Staffing Application Process
    ATLTRACON: The wise and knowledgeable controller who often wows us with his very useful insights into ATC. Works at A80 (ATLanta TRACON)
    ATCSCC: Air Traffic Control System Command Center
    ATCT: Air traffic Control Tower
    AT-SAT: Air Traffic-Selection and Training
    FAA: Mother Dearest
    FOL: Final (Firm) Offer Letter
    FSS: Flight Service Station
    FCT = Federal Contract Tower
    NATCA = National Air Traffic Controllers Association
    OTS: Off The Street (no prior ATC or CTI experience)
    OKC: This is where all the cool kids go (Oklahoma City)
    PEPC: Pre Employment Processing Center
    PUBNAT: PUBlic-NATional announcement (an acronym that the FAA uses on ASAP)
    TOL: Tentative Offer Letter.
