English for Pilots & Air Traffic Controllers

The majority of our courses are individually designed to suit client’s requirements and are taught on a one-to-one basis or in small groups in our training suite in Biggin Hill airport. However, our trainers can travel to deliver our bespoke training courses in clients offices, both in the UK and abroad.

The courses are focused on improving trainees’ ability to communicate in an aviation environment with particular reference to ICAO descriptors: vocabulary, interaction, structure, pronunciation, fluency and comprehension.

All aspects of the language are taught in the context of aviation.
