    OK when you have been on here for a little while you get to know what RTH or VFR etc means, but many new flyers who don't know need help so would it not be a good idea to say LOS (line of sight) or VFR (visual flight rules) etc etc so it can be of help and not leave people thinking what the hell is that all about?

    OK lets stat an abbreviation translation board?

    T/O . . .take off

    VFR . . .Visual flight rules

    now it's down to you guys as well (I hope).
