Improve pilot communication skills with ASTi’s web-based training service for flight schools and aviation training centers. Student pilots interact with simulated air traffic control (ATC), flying gate to gate with a variety of worldwide flight plans. These real-time ATC interactions engage students, which builds listening and speaking skills in a realistic aviation context. Performance feedback helps English as a second language (ESL) and native English speakers alike use proper phraseology and pronunciations.
Increased Communication Skills
Teach students phraseology on this affordable, online platform, decreasing time spent on expensive flight training devices. The Pilot Phraseology Trainer also provides interactive training without instructor role-play. This cutting-edge speech and language-processing technology does the following:
- Scores students based on adherence to official communication standards
- Evaluates ICAO Level 4 proficiency measures, including pronunciation, structure, and comprehension of ATC communications
