In my 30 years of Air Force aircrew training experience, this may be the best application of technology I have seen for the express purpose of getting our foreign students up to speed quickly in the aviation communication skills they will need to operate successfully in training.

When students ask me ‘how can I practice talking on the radio’, I can now tell them use PlaneEnglish.

Now I have something else to suggest to students who want to practice talking on the radio aside from ‘listen to ATC communications online'.

Now I can tell my students, don’t buy a $300 transceiver to just listen to other pilots talk to ATC….practice talking on the radio yourself, with PlaneEnglish!

It’s great to be able to identify which parts of communication and phraseology a student is struggling with.

About Us
Training opportunities to learn and master aviation radio communication are few and expensive.

We created PlaneEnglish – our app-based aviation radio communication simulator- as a solution to the lack of hands-on, in-flight experience for acquiring radio communication skills. Informed and guided by the FAA and ICAO English language standards, phraseology, and radiotelephony procedures, new pilots can gain critical skills in an accessible, affordable, and effective way.

Current PlaneEnglish capabilities focus on training pilots in aviation phraseology and radiotelephony for VFR flight. Our future efforts will expand capabilities and utility of PlaneEnglish to IFR flight and even other aviation professionals like ATC, dispatchers, ground crews, etc.

We want to be the means by which ICAO and FAA can assess radio communication proficiency and above all, increase aviation safety.

PlaneEnglish is available for Android on the Google Play Store, with next steps focusing on iOS development. We are interested in discussing partnership and sales opportunities with various institutions. Please contact us!
