This UK Airspace Supplement, created by Oxford Aviation Training, is intended to complement the international version of the VFR radiotelephony (RT) tutor. It contains lessons on the differences in UK RT procedures from those of ICAO and is designed for students who do most of their flying in UK airspace. It covers such things as the Lower Airspace Radar Service (LARS), VFR flying in military airspace, the control of aircraft wishing to penetrate danger areas and aspects of the emergency service which are particular to the UK
The VFR UK Airspace Supplement CBT covers RT Communications specific to United Kingdom Airspace. It should be purchased together with the main VFR RT Communications (ICAO/JAA compliant) CBT by those students/pilots requiring a complete VFR RT Communications course for flying in United Kingdom Airspace.
The RT Communications software has been recognised by the UK Civil Aviation Authority as meeting the training objectives for the UK Radio Telephony Operator's Licence, and (except for the VFR UK Supplement) for the Communications exams of for JAA licences at all levels.
Who is the software aimed at?
While it is aimed at the beginner, the qualified pilot who wishes to refresh existing skills will find it informative and fun to use. A wide variety of situations and RT transmissions are illustrated in the lessons. A particularly useful feature is the record/playback facility which is available in every lesson. This allows students to make and record their own RT calls and then compare them to the calls given in each lesson. To use this facility students must not only have a suitable sound system on their computers, but also a microphone with which to record. However the lessons are designed to be completed with or without the recording capability, so if students cannot record on their computers the tutor is still a very effective and interesting way of learning RT.
