Looking for aviation words

Postby Jetsi » Sat 05.10.2008 7:43 pm

Greetings all,

I am looking to find the words that would be used by Japanese pilots. Even though English is the language of aviation, I am sure they speak in Japanese to each other while on the flight deck, and I would like to carry that over to my job by learning the terms in Japanese.

A few examples I am looking for are: landing gear, flaps, fuselage, stabilizer, Captain, terminal, concourse. I am basically looking for the entire environment. I have tried online dictionaries with no help, so if anybody can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
Insert some witty and relevant quip here.

You might find some of the things you are looking for in the Japanese wikipedia article on aircraft or in the links leading out of there.

Welcome to TJP forum. :)

If you read kanji, http://www.jal.co.jp/jiten/contents/index.html would be very useful. JAL provides it.
for example;
http://www.jal.co.jp/jiten/dict/p098.html
http://www.jal.co.jp/jiten/dict/p118.html#01-05
( you can search a word with alphabet. )
If each term has both Kanji word and Katakana word, I think they use katakana word rather than kanji word.

You can also see some of terms from here.

Thanks, I will spend some time going through both of those sites.

Unfortunately, I have only learned my hiragana so far and a few easy kanji, so I am going to have to progress further before I learn much from either of those sites.

At least I now have something to work towards. :D
