Learning non-routine situations for an ICAO English test can be fun. But don't neglect routine situations.  As a candidate for a cadet programme it's far more important to become familiar with


We had a rather strange question recently.  Someone applying for a cadet pilot programme that had failed asked us if AEA "course content is going to be similar to the real test, like


What would you do if you are given an instruction by a controller that you are not able to comply with?  Watch the video and listen to the advice.


One thing that we have learned since we began teaching Aviation English in 2009 is that every learner is different.  

Before starting a course we always recommend that learners come in for a consultation.  This isn't one of those level tests followed by aggressive sales conducted at some language schools - a consultation is to find out exactly how long it will take you to achieve your target level in the time available, considering your current proficiency in structure, pronunciation, listening comprehension, in addition to your range of vocabulary and technical knowledge.

You might be looking for short-term practice for an interview, or last minute practice for an ICAO English test, or you might have more long term goals of improving your Aviation English proficiency.  If you failed an ICAO test recently, you might have been told that you need to improve your comprehension, but actually there are many factors which can cause you to lack comprehension.  After we have assessed these exact skills, and noted your patterns of behaviour we can then advise you of the best and most cost effective means to reach your goal.

Recommended learning practices for pilots

One of the most important factors in language acquisition is the frequency at which you attend classes, and we have 9 years of data to support our results. So it's highly likely that if you are an airline pilot and failed an ICAO test that we will will recommend you attend at least 100 hours over 5-6 weeks.  If you are applying for a cadetship and have a full-time job in daytime, we would probably recommend that you focus on some very specific skills in addition to the ICAO Aviation English for Cadet Entry Pilots course.  We have also noted massive difference in ability, and attitude to learning when comparing learners who attend more than once per week.  

The right English language practice, at the right time

Our Aviation English courses are designed so that learners can benefit from practice of the most relevant content for them, at the right time.  This will save you both time and money.  Whatever you think your needs are, our assessment will be more accurate than any feedback that you have had in an ICAO test.  Our feedback and assessment is highly regarded by all major airlines in Hong Kong.  Call us to arrange your consultation today, on +852 81799295.
