English for Aviation course has been created for all Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers dealing with International Flights. It focuses solely on speaking and listening and the need for plain and clear English for non-routine aviation situations.

It is highly practical and includes the use of aviation videos, tapes and role-play.
In addition to this, the English for Aviation course will include:
