ATC Language Program for Non-English Speakers

language1

In development. A training program that teaches student pilots how to speak the English words used by ATC.*

This will be a language program with a very narrow scope. It is intended for non-English speaking people. It is not a how-to-talk-to-ATC course for native English speakers.

To avoid the need to interpret the program’s instructions into hundreds of different languages, all instructions will be illustrated graphically. Here’s a sample of the prototype.

I’ll have more announcements about the product as it nears completion.

*It isn’t lost on me that the people who need this program may not be able to read this announcement. Anybody care to interpret it into 75 different languages for me?

Intonation due to signal limitations, lack of function words, standard phraseology and rapid speech rate also plague many non English speakers.
