An important update has been released this month – May 2016 – making 06/27/2000 decree more accurate, and complete about voice-communication practices.

Une importante mise à jour a été éditée ce mois-ci (mai 2016), rendant le décret du 27/06/2000 plus précis et plus complet sur les pratiques des communications vocales.

As I have told you, for properly transmitting voice communications, you need to read ICAO – DOC 4444 ATM/PANS (Air Traffic Management, updated March, 2010) which costs up to $295.00 here (click on the link below):

However, you can read a previous edition of DOC 4444 (14th Edition, updated on November 24, 2005 for instance) if you type “doc 4444 – air traffic management fourteenth edition” like here below (click on the picture):

ICAO DOC 4444 ATM - Air Traffic Management, 14th edition 2001 updated 2005

It isn’t worth reading everything as just for radiotelephony purpose, just skip to chapter 12 – page 161 until page 196.

Two other documents are important for aviation voice communications, and air traffic control:

Remember:

SARPs = Standard And Recommended Practices
PANS = Procedures for Air Navigation Services

And check updates as often as possible.

For Those Who Attended The AERONAUTICAL ENGLISH Class

Thank you so much for attending this aviation English class at « Festival des Langues » in Tours today, Sunday, November 24, 2013. Important information: FCL 1.028 and FCL 1.200 have been replaced by FCL .055 and FCL .055 D since April 9, 2013.

Here is the soundtrack we listened to this afternoon. You can download it, then listen directly to 10′ so as to get to the ATIS. Here are the keys (les solutions), see page 4 for the ATIS test, and at the bottom of page 21 for the keys.

Infos Examen d’Anglais du Pilote – Flight Crew Licensing FCL .055:

Vatry, Coupe Breitling – ©Xavier Cotton

June 30th, 2013 – L’examen concernant les communications vocales en anglais de la radiotéléphonie pourrait changer en France.

Le FCL .055 D (équivalent de l’ancien FCL 1.200 ou précédemment QRI) pourrait disparaître à la fin de l’année 2013 pour laisser place à un format d’examen FCL .055 VFR ou IFR au choix (ex FCL 1.028 VFR/IFR). Le QCM de 10 questions pourrait donc être abandonné.

Actuellement, le niveau 4 OACI est nécessaire. Il est valable 4 ans. Le niveau 5 est valable 6 ans et le niveau 6 qui n’est plus délivré qu’au centre de la DGAC de Paris-Orly est valable à vie. Toutefois, la délivrance du niveau 6 en France est devenue très rare. L’inscription à l’examen coûte actuellement 100 euros.

 

FCL = Flight Crew Licensing;
QRI = Qualification de Radiotéléphonie Internationale;
VFR = Visual Flight Rules;
IFR = Instrument Flight Rules;
OACI = Organisation de l’Aviation Civile Internationale;
DGAC = Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile;
QCM = Questionnaire à Choix Multiple.

ATTENTION le FCL .055 remplace les FCL 1.200 et 1.028 à partir d’AVRIL 2013

Chers lecteurs et abonnés,

Aujourd’hui samedi 30 mars 2013, les examens de radiotéléphonie aéronautique JAA/JAR FCL 1.200 et FCL 1.028 en France n’ont plus que quelques jours à vivre comme vous pouvez le voir sur ce calendrier: lien périmé.

Attention toutefois aux dates et aux centres car ce calendrier semble avoir subi déjà quelques modifications comme on peut le découvrir sur le calendrier du site d’inscrition d’OCEANE. A partir du 9 avril 2013, le FCL .055 D remplacera le FCL 1.200 avec un format similaire. Les FCL .055 VFR et IFR remplaceront les FCL 1.028 VFR et IFR.

Des évolutions devraient arriver avec les FCL 1.055 pour les pilotes ou navigants sur avions et FCL 2.055 pour les pilotes d’hélicoptères. Pour l’instant, les informations disponibles sur le site officiel de la DGAC concernant la grille d’évaluation OACI (Organisation de l’Aviation Civile Internationale) sont toujours valables.
