Wheni first came to airliners.net, i couldnt understand half of the terminology used by most posters. Things like Rotating, etc used to mean "Taking off".
Though i know what they mean now, i wonder why such terms have been given to these situations.
Can anyone explain why taking off is called "ROTATION" and what exactly does "LONG APPROACH" and "SHORT FINALS" mean? I am sure there are alot of you who can post other terminology which helps people who are in the dark!
