AERONAUTICAL STANDARD PHRASEOLOGY As it is known, two important subjects are measured in proficiency exams, Plain English and Standard Phraseologism. In-flight operation is normally expected to be performed using standard patterns. However, sometimes it is necessary to maintain a secure communication using plain English in unexpected situations during the operation. In this case, the need for simple English skills to come into play and come to a level that can communicate safely without causing misunderstandings arises. So what should be done to develop this skill? In these cases, development can be achieved by using training modules that can develop extraordinary and standard speaking skills. RADIOTELEPHONY PHRASEOLOGY This course contains a carefully sequenced selection of training materials, giving progressive, systematic practice in radiotelephony phraseology for pilots. The exercises are primarily designed to teach operational fluency in the ROUTINE phraseology for IFR flights. Unlike routine phraseology, the language of NON-ROUTINE situations is not highly predictable. However, practice is also provided for a selection of non-routine situations, plus additional vocabulary work. This course is suitable for pilots or pilot trainees who wish to learn, or revise, the language used for radiotelephony communications. It is particularly suitable for people working at home or in a learning resources centre. All the exercises are self-correcting.
