ANACpedia is a database consisting of bilingual dictionaries (English-Portuguese/Portuguese-English; Spanish-Portuguese/Portuguese-Spanish; English-Spanish/Spanish-English; French-Portuguese/Portuguese-French; French-English/English-French), a monolingual dictionary in Portuguese and two lists of acronyms in Portuguese and English, developed by the Department of People Management – SGP of the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency - ANAC. Glossaries contain aviation terms and abbreviations commonly used in Brazil and abroad. We hope ANACpedia can assist consultants in understanding aviation terminology conveyed in texts written in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Information provided for some terms and acronyms result from researches developed by ANAC in partnership with the Brazilian Department of Airspace Control (DECEA).
