Training opportunities to learn and master aviation radio communication are few and expensive.
We created PlaneEnglish – our app-based aviation radio simulator – as a solution to the lack of hands-on, in-flight experience for acquiring radio communication skills. Informed and guided by the FAA and ICAO English standards, phraseology, and radiotelephony procedures, new pilots can gain critical skills and communication “muscle memory” in an accessible, affordable, and effective way.
Current PlaneEnglish capabilities focus on training pilots in aviation phraseology and radiotelephony for VFR flight. Future efforts will expand capabilities and utility of PlaneEnglish to IFR flight and even other aviation professionals like ATC, dispatchers, ground crews, etc.
We want to be the means by which ICAO and FAA can assess radio communication proficiency and above all, increase aviation safety.
PlaneEnglish is available for iOS and Android on the AppStore and Google Play Store. Take a look for yourself with the free download and let us know what you think. If you are part of an institution and are interested in customization options and licenses, contact us!
