I am writing my first linux shell script

I want to run an airodump for 10 seconds and then stop and return to my script where I will then enter the channel that the wifi network i want is on.

i have tried *timeout 10s airodump-ng wlan1* but nothing is displayed in the terminal

anyone have any idea how i might be able to get this to run for a set amount of time and then basically do a ctrl+c?

thanks in advance
