Saturday, July 11, 2009
Aviation has its own lingo, as many other professions do. It can be confusing at first, when you're just learning to fly, but it is vital from a safety perspective that you understand aviation terminology, especially that used by air traffic control (ATC). Phoenix East, always a step ahead of many other flight schools, now includes ATC Communications training as part of your ground school. This is unique among flight schools and makes it another important advantage of Phoenix East pilot training. Not only is ATC Communication critical if you are learning to fly in an English-speaking country and talking to and listening to air traffic controllers and ground controllers' instructions, but if you hope to fly internationally, you will need to be proficient in ATC communications in English.
Communication is a major safety issue for the aviation industry. Errors in understanding can cause confusion and unsafe situations in the air and on taxiways and runways. To become skilled in aviation terminology, Phoenix East has integrated key areas of communications right at the beginning of your training, which you will then quickly master in order to safely negotiate complex airspace. You will be trained in each phase of radio communications, ste-by-step, even giving you real world examples. This will help you become a better and safer pilot, and it will also make it easier and faster for you to understand navigation, rules of the air, air traffic control regulations ,etc.
Understanding ATC Communications will accererate your flight training and give you more confidence in your new abilities as a beginning pilot. This is one more example of how Phoenix East prepares you better for your future career as a professional pilot.
