LEARN THE LINGO
Radio Telephony (RT) is a fundamental part of learning to fly and will help to ensure you stay safe in an aircraft. Not only will allow you to remain safe it will also open up a lot of doors in terms of your flying trips. Being able to safely and efficiently use the radio in a busy environment will mean you will be able to visit that airport that you've always dreamed of landing at and will allow you to do it with maximum confidence and efficiency.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO GAIN AN RT LICENCE?
Candidates are required to pass 2 exams in order to gain a Radio Telephony Licence.
The first is a multi-choice exam. This exam must be passed first before the practical exam is taken. Candidates must be familiar with the Radio Telephony Manual CAP 413 of which the written exam is based.
The second exam is a practical test which is carried out in a radio simulator of which the candidate is to fly a simulated route giving the appropriate calls at the appropriate time.
Candidates must be familiar with how to do the following calls:
Initial call on the ground and reply
Initial call in the air and the reply
Direction finding call
WHERE WILL I BE TAUGHT RT?
All of our groundschool takes place in our modern purpose built classrooms on site and will be taught by our team of highly experienced instructors. RT can either be taught on a one-to-one basis or in a group class. These group classes usually take place one evening a week over a six week period. RT lessons on a one-to-one basis are charged at the standard ground school rate. These can be booked in advance by phoning the flying school or by using our online booking system.
Of course, if at any point you decide that you'd like to refresh your knowledge and would like to spend an hour or two discussing any specific aspects of RT you can always book in with us.
