Pilots frequently utilize the aviation alphabet, which is a phonetic alphabet. An alphabetical list of codes that correspond to the letters of the traditional English alphabet was created by the International Civil Aviation Organization, or ICAO. Communication between pilots and other positions that deal with air traffic around the world was intended to be made simpler by this. Many nations had their own air travel communication systems before the 1950s. However, the ICAO streamlined a common list that could be used by everyone because many letters sound too similar and communication needed to be easy.
Examples of Aviation Alphabet in Use: Let’s say a pilot was trying to communicate their tail number, XL-TRA to the flight tower. They would say, “X-ray Lima Tango Romeo Alpha”
