We also offer Aviation English lessons which may be substituted for one of our general English immersion classes that make up our curriculum for academic English (EAP). The EAP curriculum is designed to help students improve their English language skills for entry into American/British universities.

All of our aviation-English classes are staffed with professional instructors in Teaching English as a Second Language.


Primarily for non-native English-speaking general aviation pilots who live in Europe, Central and South America. This course focuses on improving Aviation English communication skills needed to fly in controlled and uncontrolled airspace and to improve listening skills when presented with simulated and actual recordings from Flight Service Stations, ATIS, Clearance Delivery, Ground Control, Tower Control, as well as Approach and Departure Control.

A primary focus of the course is to improve the pilot's ability to communicate aviation concepts using maps, flight instruments, and model aeroplanes. Class activities include flight simulation role-plays, observer flights, Interactive training (JAA Compliant) and a language library. Course content involves transmission of letters, numbers, and time. Transmission techniques, words and phrases. RT Call Signs: aeronautical stations and aircraft. Establishment and Transfer of communications. Test procedures. Q Codes. Categories of Messages. Issue of Clearance and Readback. General Phraseology. Level Instruction. Flight Plans. Aerodrome Control-Aircraft. Departure Information. Taxi Instructions. Take Off Procedures. Aerodrome Traffic Circuit. Final Approach and Landing. Go Around. After Landing. Essential Aerodrome Information. Aerodrome Control - Vehicles. Movement Instructions. Crossing Runways. Vehicles Towing Aircraft. General Radar. Radar ID and Vectoring. Traffic Information and Avoiding Action. Secondary Surveillance Radar. Relevant Wx Information Terms. Aerodrome Weather. Weather Broadcast. Communication Failure. Distress and Urgency. VHF Propagation. The student will work on improving pronunciation, practising English for ATC communication for VFR departures and arrivals (CAP413). All of the above skills can be put into immediate practice by using the services and facilities of local airports in Florida.

Here is what one of our students had to say about the course:

Miguel Nadal Aviation Pilot SpainRecomiendo Angloscene a los pilotos privados que quieran asumir o mejorar su nivel de inglés aeronáutico. En una semana, conseguí un nivel de comunicaciones en ingles que me permitió no sólo volar por Florida, sino regresar a España manteniendo las comunicaciones por radio en ingles sin ningún problema. Volar en el Sur de Florida es una experiencia que recomiendo a los pilotos privados, por la belleza del paisaje y la cantidad de aerodromos

Aviation English


EATC is designed to improve the English ability of non-native speaking air traffic controllers to perform duties in English. Class content includes a wide range of English used in International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air-traffic control, to include familiarisation with ICAO and FAA standards. Participants on this course will be trained to meet the ICAO language proficiency rating scale of Operational Level 4 or higher. The Operational Level (Level 4) is the minimum required proficiency level for radiotelephoney communication.

Non-native speakers and native speakers of English must demonstrate a minimum language proficiency at ICAO Level 4 (Operational) as a licensing requirement.

For air traffic service personnel and pilots whose first language is not English, testing will be required to determine language proficiency according to the ICAO Proficiency scale. Personnel will need to demonstrate ability to use the language specific to all aspects of radiotelephony communication. Personnel who demonstrate proficiency at:

  • ICAO Level 6 ( Expert) will not be required to demonstrate subsequent language proficiency.
  • ICAO Level 5 (Extended) will need to be retested every six years.
  • ICAO Level 4 (Pre-operational) will need to be retested every three years.
  • ICAO Level 3 or below will need specific Aviation English language training to reach the minimum ICAO Operational level.

Although these standards became applicable in November 2003, all ICAO Member States have been given until March 2011 to fulfil the necessary training requirements to allow personnel to meet mandatory testing and licensing requirements.

This course is designed to enable pilots or air traffic controllers to:

  • meet the minimum ICAO Operational English proficiency level (Level 4)
  • participate in ground-air communication effectively in English
  • recognise and use ICAO phraseology
  • recognise and use plain English in a range of non-routine flight and ground contexts
  • communicate effectively in English in common in-flight and on-ground situations.
