Folks,

What's with all these acronyms in for-sale ads ? I am considering buying an
airplane, and I still don't understand much of the terminology used in
aircraft sale ads.

For instance, what are TTA, TSMOH, TSTOH, TSPOH ? I realize they have
something to do with engine overhaul times but I don't know much beyond that.

Also, when it comes to avionics in the airplane, they start reeling off
the make and model numbers without a pause. For example what is a
KX155 w/KI 209 (LOC/GS) ? How about a TKM MK11 ? Are these supposed to
mean something to me ?

What's wrong with full word descriptions ? I think the internet
is fully capable of handling a few extra characters When you are trying
to sell a $50,000 piece of equipment I don't think it is unreasonable to
expect a detailed description!

Pardon my ignorance if these are well known acronyms....

It's unofficial shorthand for "Private Pilot" privileges for category:
"Aircraft," class: "Single-engine Land," granted by the FAA to the
Airmans Certificate holder.
