Hello. - Link:
Have a great day! :)
It's from the french "M'aidez!" which means "help me". It's just been anglicized. Mayday is an emergency code word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure communications, derived from the French m'aider. It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency by many groups, such as police forces, pilots, the fire brigade, and transportation organizations. The call given three times (mayday, mayday, mayday...) in a row indicates significant danger (for example, a threat to life). Because it sounds cool. May Day means HELP that person who is about to crash my dad used to do that not say May Day he just learned it It's French
([venez] m'aider, “come help me”; N.B. "Aidez-moi" means "help me") the following is a message of extreme urgency, the highest level of danger. (MAYDAY is used on voice channels for the same uses as SOS on Morse channels.) ORIGIN OF MAYDAY
Opinions From The Internet
Why do ships and aircraft in trouble use "mayday" as their call for help? This comes from the French word m'aidez - meaning "help me" - and is pronounced "mayday." (Note: not exactly. it's pronounced "med-ay", but close enough) It is a modified version of the French word for help me.
"Mayday is an emergency code word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure communications, derived from the French m'aider. M'aider is the infinitive form of the reflexive verb "help me" within French syntax" Thanks to all it’s a new piece of information Because HOLY SH*T is frowned upon by the FCC.
