Is there any dominant culture in global aeronautical settings?
This article investigates the existence of dominant culture in global aeronautical settings. The author presents the nature of aeronautical communication and classifies its users into two main groups: native and non-native speakers of English. Traditionally, presented high-risk aviation environment is devoid of any cultural models to follow. However, the author demonstrates how a human factor may modify prescribed rules and points to the real-life examples of dominant culture observed in aeronautical communication. The article hopes to contribute to intercultural aeronautical communication as well as multiculturalism.
