Working on an Air Traffic Control Vocabulary Builder

ATC says: One zero thousand.

Big news! I’m working on an air traffic control vocabulary builder. The heck is that? An air traffic control vocabulary builder is a training program that teaches you the language of air traffic control.

How Does it Do it?

  1. It presents you with pictures showing a flight instrument, or a fight situation, or air traffic control symbols.
  2. Then you hear one or more words from a simulated air traffic controller.
  3. You must pick the picture that matches the words from ATC, or you must pick the words from ATC that match the picture.

Why does it Work?

By matching words to pictures and pictures to words, you develop strong word-to-image memories. Word-image memory is really what learning the language of ATC is all about. In fact, that’s how you learn any new language.

Who is it For?

This program is primarily for people who speak English as a second language. It will also help any student pilot who is not familiar with the language of air traffic control.

How is this Different from the Aircraft Radio Simulator?

The Aircraft Radio Simulator, when complete, will teach you how to talk on the aircraft radio in real time. The Vocabulary Builder teaches you the ATC language, one step at a time, at your own pace.

How Can you Check this Out?

I have already given this news to members of our Insider’s Area at ATCcommunication.com. Insider’s will be the only ones getting updates on the ATC Vocabulary Builder. Insider’s will also get a first-look at the new program before it released to the general public for sale.

If you Want to Be an Insider

It’s absolutely free and there is no obligation, now, or ever. You can quit anytime. The Insider’s area is for pilots and student pilots who want to test fly the latest alpha and beta versions of the Aircraft Radio Simulator, the Vocabulary Builder, plus serious teaching games. Oh yeah, there’s also some good freebies, such as flight logs, tailored checklists, and newsletter with tips and tricks for talking to ATC. You can keep all that stuff, even if you leave.
