Aviation English Asia Ltd offers the English for Flight Training module to supplement the Basic Aeronautical Knowledge Certificate Programme.
Improve your English before you start flight training
ICAO Aviation English courses designed for airline pilots are not suitable for beginners. The aim of the English for Flight Training module is to give trainee pilots the opportunity to practice the English language skills needed during both the ground school and cockpit/simulator-based phases of training.
The module has three sub-modules:
- Module 3A: English for Ground School
- Module 3B: Radiotelephony 101
- Module 3C: English for Non-routine Situations
You will practice reading, writing, speaking and listening in the context of authentic aviation training, at a suitable level for your experience.
