Those of you who are new and current members of LiveATC.net. Here is the alphabets in aviation language.

A-Alfa=ALFAH, B-Bravo=BRAHVOH, C-Charlie=CHARLEE,                      D-Delta=DELLTAH, E-Echo=ECKOH, F-Foxtrot=FOKSTROT, G-Golf=GOLF, H-Hotel=HOHTELL, I-India=IDDEE AH, J-Juliet=JEWLEE ETT,                   K-Kilo=KEYLOH, L-Lima=LEEMAH, M-Mike=MIKE,                                    N-November=NOVEMBER, O-Oscar=OSSCAH, P-Papa=PAHPAH,              Q-Quebec=KEHBECK, R-Romeo=ROME OH, S-Siera=SEEAIRAH,               T-Tango=TAGGO, U-Uniform=YOUNEE FORM, V-Victor=VIKTAH,              W-Whiskey=WISSKEY, X-X-ray=ECKSRAY, Y-Yankee=YANGKEY &          Z-Zulu=ZOOLOO.

Here are the numbers that are spose to said individuly

0-Zero=ZE-RO, 1-One=WUN, 2-Two=TOO, 3-Three=TREE,                     4-Four=FOW-ER, 5-Five=FIFE, 6-Six=SIX, 7-Seven=SEV-EN, 8-Eight=AIT, 9-Nine=NIN-ER.

Let me suggest another source, as some of your translations are a bit different from what is officially accepted:

Or...

Nope, I just decided not to post.  I actually read this 15 minutes ago, but I like to give others a chance.  :wink:

I'll keep this in mind for the next time <g>.

From the AIM, this is funny:

Quote
5   Five  (pronunciation:) FIFE


Then, right below this, they give an example:

Quote
11,495   "One one four niner five."


Looks like the AIM is representative of the real world; that is, hearing fife for five is a rarity.  :)

I hear Kansas City Center saying FIFE all the time.  It sounds funny when they say Contact Indy Center on one one niner point fife fife.  Or one tree tree point two two fife.

FIFE and TREE are official ICAO pronounciations. Too many non English native pilots are just unable to articulate sounds like THREE. I giving an English phraseology PTC to all our ATC controlleres here in Geneva Switzerland, and no one finds it weird.
