      Helen,

      Usually, I agree with you and your statements.
      However, in this instance, I disagree.
      I believe that a student pilot should be using the correct/same names for things
      as the experienced pilots.

      Otherwise, when the hanger discussion broaches aviation topics one (or both)
      sides of the discussion will be confused/mislead/ and/or thinking the other side
      does not know what they are talking about.

      Proper aviation training should/must include proper terminology.

      R. Williams
