Hey, guys! I often hear some of colleagues having a hard time explaining even simple things over the radio. That’s of course partially due to the fact that all those abnormal-related conversations come up unexpectedly and catch us off guard.
Hey guys! I’m delighted to announce that the Ultimate Radiocom Quiz is now available for FluentPilot subscribers – a powerful tool to check and upgrade your listening comprehension skills!
I personally consider RT communication in English to be one of the most demanding skills out there and I bet many of my colleagues would back me up here.
Previously we covered the steps to be taken along the way from zero to the proficiency test and I asked you to find out where you are at right now. That would be your starting point.
You know now where you are and where you need to be. So let’s then think of the best way to get there. Actually, there is no such thing as the ultimate solution: it will be the suited and optimized for you, considering your personal demands and resources you can currently invest.
Supposedly, you are having a gear problem (say, not sure whether it’s down and locked), what would your actions be and what would you request from ATC? The following piece suggests an example of a similar situation.
Hey! One more piece for you containing a non-routine type of communications. Would you choose to take off if you were advised of a problem like that? Comment below!
Do a mini-quiz afterwards and check the transcript if you need.
In the previous chapter of this blog we dealt with ICAO requirements for the six descriptors and answered the question if it makes sense to study Aviation English ‘from scratch’ (spoiler alert: no).
What’s up everyone! Did you miss radiocom challenges? Here is one!
Listen to the track and answer the questions FIRST! Then consult the transcript (in case you need it at all).
Luckily, ICAO has defined the requirements for candidates at each level. Thus you can clearly picture the final result you should achieve. And the scary global goal of ‘mastering English’ boils down to clear, understandable and absolutely achievable tasks.
