Abbreviation/Acronym "SIP"

Thu Jan 21, 2021 10:46 pm

Hello, just a quick question:

What could the abbreviation or acronym "SIP" in the context of aviation/flying/airline operations mean?

Thanks a lot.

Strut Improvement Program. It means your Boeing aircraft has pylons designed by Boeing engineers and you get to foot the bill for the design shortcomings.

just a guess:

1. Simulator Implementation Procedure.

2. Standardization/Instructor Pilot

3. The coffee is very hot; drink it slowly.

Are you sure it wasn't "SID" that you heard? It stands for Standard Instrument Departure. These are published departure procedures that help reduce controller workload, improve traffic flow, and increase safety.
