Super quick article today. I’m about to depart the layover hotel in San Juan for a long flight up to JFK.
There are two ways to call for help on the aircraft radio:
“Pan. Pan. Pan.”
“Mayday. Mayday. Mayday.”
What is the difference between the two, and, for extra credit, what does “Pan” mean? For even more credit, give me an example of a situation in which you might use the “Pan, pan, pan” radio call.
Toss your answer into the comment section below. You don’t have to sign in to comment. Let ‘er rip. I’ll have the answer after the conclusion of today’s airline trip. Jeff
