Aviation Adjective Guide

Not so cute from this angle…

While walking through Canberra International Airport with a bunch of fellow GP registrars today, one mentioned that she was flying direct to Newcastle. That seemed like a very obscure route. Turns out it was serviced by Brindabella Airlines. I asked whether it was flown by a propeller aircraft. The answer was “yes, it’s a pretty cute plane.” This made us laugh and think about words that were either inappropriate or not for describing the plane you were about to board. Feel free to post any more suggestions!

Words that you would NOT like your plane described as:

  • Cute
  • Fluffy
  • Tenuous
  • Antique
  • Flimsy
  • Lightweight
  • Friable
  • Fun
  • Russian

Words that you would like your plane to be described as:

  • Robust
  • Handsome
  • Stable
  • Functioning
  • Sufficient
  • Vigorous
  • Intact
  • Substantial
  • Serious
