FCL 0.55 IFR or VFR Exam Preparation

20 Hours - a 10 hour course is also available

Course Overview

This Aviation English Course is designed for pilots who are taking the DGAC FCL 0.55 Exam and need to maintain their ICAO Level 4 or higher. However, the focus of the course is on giving the pilots the tools they need to be able to give a clear and accurate description of an aeronautical event (FCL Exam Part 2) using a wide range of vocabulary and grammar.

The Course consists of 5 Modules containing 4 one to one lessons (1 hour each) providing a total of 20 hours of tuition. Within each module, 3 lessons will include a listening exercise in the form of an ATC broadcast, the discussion of an article and a variety of exercises to practise grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The remaining lesson will focus on FCL Exam practice and improving language skills according to the individual pilot’s needs.

The lessons have been designed to allow the pilots to practise their aeronautical and plain English based on the 6 ICAO Descriptors: pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interaction. A Range of authentic material from the industry provides the basis for English language improvement and the development of confident communication skills within a Virtual Classroom.

A shortened 10-hour version of this course is also available as a refresher course. Please contact us for further information
