Radiotelephony (RT) enables pilots to communicate with Air Traffic Service Units (ATSUs) in order to obtain information and instructions relating to the safe and expeditious conduct of flights. Yet, many student pilots find learning to speak over the RT more daunting than actually learning to fly the aircraft.
This book has been conceived and produced primarily in order to help students to acquire the RT knowledge, skills and techniques they will need to communicate competently, concisely and effectively with all categories of ATSUs, when flying in accordance with the Visual Flight Rules (VFR), anywhere in the world.
The skills taught by the book cover all ICAO standard RT procedures, and United Kingdom differences to those procedures. The book is suitable for everyone working towards the VFR RT Communications examination for any level of pilot’s licence. It should be particularly useful for the United Kingdom-based student pilot preparing for either a JAR-FCL/EASA PPL RT Communications examination, the UK National PPL Communications examination, or for the written and practical tests for the UK Flight Radiotelephony Operator’s Licence.
