Does anyone here know where I can access an civil aviation glossary? I need to define some terms that seem to be second nature to everyone else here. I would like to find the definitions of such terms as "CASM" and "O & D." I know what they mean, but I need to get their definitions from a reputable web page. I tried the DOT home page, Wikpedia (which did define "CASM," but not O & D) and dictionary.com, but no luck. Is there a website devoted to these kinds of things? Thanks...

And now this one. There is definently a need for a glossary, and there are people (myself included) who are willing to do this, but nobody from the site will give us the go-ahead. I know exactly what ya mean ZChannel.

By the way, CASM = Cost per Available Seat Mile
