OK I give up... Despite all possible combinations of initials and despite X years of flying civil and mil, I donít know and canít work out what HAL means - not on this thread and not on the MAX and other threads.
Please donít shoot - just explain. Ta B

'HAL' is a reference to the fictional computer in the film '2001 : A Space Odyssey'.

It's a HAL 9000 model. It famously says 'I'm sorry Dave, I can't allow you to do that'

It’s a spoof on the IBM acronym.
