Aviation English

This course will enable you to function effectively in everyday situations where clarity of expression in technical aviation English is required.

Typical Course Content
The course is built around and focuses on the 6 major areas of the ICAO Language Proficiency Rating Scale:

  • Pronunciation
  • Structure
  • Vocabulary
  • Fluency
  • Comprehension
  • Interactions
We will focus on these six vital areas by using a communicative approach in aviation-related contexts.  Combining standard radio-telephony phraseology and ‘plain’ English will ensure that personnel have the confidence to move beyond phraseology in times of need and ensure safety in the air.
