This is a twelve (12) month access to the VFR comms training content and airport database of the PlaneEnglish Aviation Radio Simulator, ARSim.
Access includes BASICS mode, VFR mode, TRAINER mode (VFR) and airport database of over 300 airports.
In BASICS mode, users can learn and practice the foundations of aviation radio communication, from the pronunciation of numbers, the phonetic alphabet, and the phraseology for making requests and reading back clearances and instructions. In this mode, there are 88 lessons organized into eight modules that gradually expose pilots to aviation phraseology and radio procedures.
In VFR mode, users can learn and practice most of the aviation communication phraseology and procedures that they may encounter during a VFR flight. In this mode, there are 52 lessons grouped into seven modules that cover all phases of flight: taxi out, takeoff, flight plan, flight following, airspace entrance, approach, and taxi in.
In TRAINER mode, users can take advantage of a built-in training curriculum to advance through increasingly complex levels to train in all phases of VFR and IFR flight. Advancement to higher levels requires passing Stage Checks, which serve as an assessment of users' radio proficiency and offer the opportunity to earn your radio proficiency wings. Complete all the levels in TRAINER mode and claim 2 FAA WINGS Credits (ACL-727) for VFR Comms.
Once you complete the purchase you will receive an email with the access key and instructions for activating it on your device. The timer on your access will begin only when you activate your access.
When the access has expired, you can simply purchase another access key to continue your training.
If you are interested in or need the more in-depth description of aviation radiotelephony, head over to our website or store and take a look at our comms manual, The Easy Route to Aviation Radio Proficiency. The manual covers radio communications you are likely to encounter under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) conditions. It is designed to teach you aviation phraseology and enable you to practice what you learn by calling out practice lessons in ARSim for every concept.
PlaneEnglish was and continues to be a great aid for me to learn and become more natural and spontaneous in my communications. Even now, after logging 80 hours of flying, if I haven't flown for a few weeks I will practice a typical flight on PlaneEnglish to get back in the groove before heading out to the airport.
