Proper Names not always correct

Recommended Posts

Is there any way for you to correct some mispronunciations in your ATC voice files? Is anyone collecting up errors that can be corrected in a next release?Flying between EGHI and the Channel Islands, I hear Aurigny's callsign as A-lene, sometimes Eye-line and occasionally the correct 'A-line'. I've heard their Trislander pronounced at Try-Islander. One controller instructed me to contact 'Beast Control' (or it may have been 'Breest Control') instead of Brest Control. On the other side of the world, the Australian city of Melbourne is pronounce 'Mel-bn', not Mel-borne. I'm sure there are others.How about it?Brian

I can add to this:Mexico's Merida control is pronounced me-RIH-dah or worse, me-RAY-dah. It should be MEH-ri-da.Glad to be of service.
