    Overview

    Designed for students who do not speak English as their native language, English for Flight Training Program is a great way to prepare for the high communicative demands of flight training, including communication with Air Traffic Control during flight operations, with flight instructors both on the ground and in the flight deck, and with instructors and peers in the ground school classroom.

    With an experienced language teacher, students study foundational topics related to flying, such as aircraft systems, aerodynamics, airport operations, aviation weather, ATIS broadcasts, and more. Students engage with interesting aviation content for two reasons: to build their aviation knowledge and to develop their language proficiency. 

    This four-week, 120-hour intensive English course utilizes authentic flight training materials to focus on the six ICAO language skills: Interaction, Comprehension, Vocabulary, Structure, Pronunciation, and Fluency.

    Who Should Attend

    • International Flight Students
