Reading CAP 413 isn’t enough!

Recently, when booking candidate’s FRTOL Practical Tests, I have been hearing…

“I have read CAP 413”

Unfortunately, that isn’t enough. Detailed knowledge of CAP 413 certainly is required but on top of that the ability to place the RTF calls correctly during the different flight phases of flight (e.g. departure, en route, approach, diversion, emergencies) and in the context of the various categories of service inside and outside controlled airspace (i.e. Air Traffic Control (ATC), Flight Information Service (FIS) and Air/Ground Communication Service (AGCS)) is necessary in order to be able to apply the information contained in CAP413. We have recently updated our training material – take a look!

Rehearse! Rehearse! Rehearse!

Approach the FRTOL Practical Test as a performance like actors do. Rehearse all the various different procedures either with online tools, a fellow pilot or a long-suffering partner! If you cannot find a suitable practice partner, then contact us and arrange 1:1 sessions.

New! FRTOL Course Material Released

We have updated our FRTOL course material The aim of our FRTOL course is to fully prepare candidates for both the Communications Theoretical Examination (TK) and the NEW UK CAA FRTOL Practical Test.

The traditional technique of learning to correctly use the radio in an aircraft by magical ‘instructor-to-student’ osmosis never did work and the NEW UK CAA FRTOL Practical Test will, no doubt, bring that into sharp focus.

Our course closely follows the UK CAA Communications Theory Learning Objectives (LO) and SRG 1171 Flight Radiotelephony Operators Licence (FRTOL) Practical Test Training Syllabus – Record of Completion to make sure that the candidate is fully prepared to be assessed against SRG 2160, Flight Radiotelephony Operators Licence (FRTOL) Practical Test Report Form. The course takes approximately 2-days to complete.
