Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

Just to cut the chase ... a real life situation where pilot declares PAN-PAN-PAN:



The declaration starts at 9:37 in the video. Although the pilot uses PAN instead of the "proper" PAN-PAN ... the pronunciation would be the same. Listen and repeat ...

Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

At 0:38 in this video pilot/copilot declares pan pan pan (pronounced Pahn)



Different flier, different pronunciation.

Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

Right ... she the pilot rushed it a bit but it sounds to me the same. Either PAN call can be easily understood and is distinct from casual flight communication.

Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

Dave (goboatingnow) is correct on this. The correct pronunciation is the french one. He is also right in that it was chosen so everyone around the world would understand the message.

Americans, generally have a problem with foreign languages, so they are trying to change the pronunciation to PON PON, Silence and Security (along with having buoys that conform to International standard B).

I realize that many americans will never visit a foreign country, but when on the radio, it is best to say it correctly. Otherwise help may not arrive..........

No self respecting Aussie would touch the stuff....

Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

As a pilot we have always been taught Pan Pan. Pon Pon I have never heard and I guess is some sort of American or other colloquialism? Pon Pon is certainly not the international distress call.

Re: PAN PAN....OR PON PON

Its funny that the USCG mispronounces it!

The only place in the world and they have to claim they are right instead of correcting themselves.

Just occurred to me that she might be trying to pronounce the word PAN in English! rather than her native french (she sounds french ) and that to her the word PAN looks like it should be pronounced as "Pahn" - otherwise it would be spelt Panne .

Now, about that word Bouy .
