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. But if you practice language everyday (or almost everyday), it won’t be that of a challenge, right?
Here is the setup for the next recording: American 622 cruises at about FL380 but nearby traffic report he might have problems. The traffic controller questions other airplanes on what’s happening.
So, listen to the piece, complete the quiz questions, check the transcript if you need, take notice of the vocab, enjoy.
It turned out in the end that…
Complete the last part of the conversation:
-Hey American 622, company 737 just passing off your left side down at 33 says he sees something that looks like and doesn’t look like a normal .
-It is in color and it could be a fluid or a light-colored smoke, we can’t tell.
-Ok, thanks for the heads up, American 622.
-American 622, cleared direct [DIXON].
-Cleared direct [DIXON], American 622.
-American 622, I’ve got another 737 that’s gonna pass just below you there off the right side in about two minutes. Do you want me to have him look up and say what he sees?
-No, it’s confirmed…actually, historically, this has happened on this airplane. There [is] two different types of that we have on this airplane…all our engine parameters are looking good, we are not losing any fluid.
