Student pilot’s will learn the procedures, maneuvers and phraseology necessary to interact with different ATC facilities or centers in routine VFR situations. Simulations take place at and around Class D, C, and Bravo airports so that pilots can practice realistic scenarios of ATC-pilot communications with Ground, Approach, Center, etc. as well as random contacts with FBOs, FSSs or other facilities depending on the context. Student pilots become familiar with VFR operations and communications that require a proficient use of phraseology and some use of plain English when phraseology is not enough to get the message across.

Student pilot’s will learn to establish a relationship of understanding with ATC that warrants a safe flight (even if they make mistakes, they are able to correct them so that ultimately there is no confusion.) They develop the capacity to obtain and share information about the flight operation in a more fluent and structured manner, using the kind of language that ATC in the US understand –in normal and abnormal situations. Students pilots gain airmanship skills as they face unexpected situations on a regular basis and use new language resources in plain English to deal with them and report them to ATC.

Student pilot’s will be able to handle with ease communications with ATC in non-routine and unexpected flight situations. They will be able to patch up any communication gaps or misunderstandings through a better awareness of the management of the interaction with ATC. With emphasis given on the verification of information and agreements in the coordination of tasks between pilot and ATC, the pilot becomes highly proficient in task management, problem-solving and not taking things for granted, even in situations that call for quicker readbacks, or more complex requests to and negotiations with ATC using plain English.
