ICAO Air Traffic Radiotelephony – Transmitting Numbers

Here is an audio/video file with transcript about how the numbers must be pronounced according to the ICAO (International Civilian Aviation Organization) standard. This is how aircrew members, and air traffic controllers should transmit the numbers.

CAUTION – There is not any exception for FL 100, and FL 200 according to the ICAO DOC 9432 Radiotelephony Manual, page 19, chapter 2.4.2, as it is pronounced « FLIGHT LEVEL ONE-ZERO-ZERO », and « FLIGHT LEVEL TWO-ZERO-ZERO ».
However, « Flight level one hundred » follows the French DGAC and the British CAA patterns.

Final approach – How to read VASI and PAPI lights

The VASI (Visual Approach Slope Indicator) and the PAPI (Precision Approach Path Indicator) are systems of lights that provide guidance information to help pilots acquire and maintain the correct approach to an airfield. They are generally located beside the runway. These lights can be seen from up to 8 kilometers (5 miles) during the day and up to 32 kilometers (20 miles) or more at night.
