Hydraulic system failures or hydraulic leaks are quite common, would you agree? And despite redundancy of modern commercial aircraft, those kind of scenarios may cause serious trouble to the crew. Let’s take a look at several lost-hydraulics situations, practice listening comprehesion and, as always, check our progress by completing quiz questions.
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).
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.
Are you a pilot or a traffic controller? Active or going through training to become one? Sure as hell the challenge of taking an ICAO language proficiency test is imminent. And it doesn’t really matter whether you have just been granted a private pilot license or a seasoned TRE with thousands of flight hours in the logbook.
