Legal mandates for airspace modernization, certification requirements, and minimum aircraft capability and equipment standards aim to improve the efficiency and safety of air traffic, particularly within the world's busiest airspace. Mandates drive changes in technical and operational standards, but they can also deny
English for Aviation is part of the Express Series. It is an ideal course for students in employment, who want to communicate better in English.
This short, intensive course can be completed in 25-30 hours, so students make progress quickly.
English for Aviation can be used as a stand-alone course, for self-study using the interactive MultiROM, or alongside a coursebook such as International Express.
Improving air traffic control and air traffic management is currently one of the top priorities
of the global research and development agenda. Massive, multi-billion euro programs like
SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) in Europe and NextGen (Next Generation Air
Transportation System) in the United States are on their way to create an air transportation
system that meets the demands of the future.
An overview of the NEWSKY project (“NEtWorking the SKY”) is given. This project is co-funded by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme and has started in February 2007. The main goal of the NEWSKY project is to show that the integration of different communications systems and different applications into a global, heterogeneous network for aeronautical communications is feasible and how this integration can be achieved.
This revised edition contains over 5,000 terms used by air traffic controllers, pilots, cabin crew, maintenance crews, ground staff and other airline personnel.
Designed for those specialising in aviation and related industries, including trainee pilots, maintenance engineers and other professionals, this dictionary has all the words you need.
While midnight festivities still echoed the ether was electrified as European air navigation
services providers subconscious minds merged on January 1st 2012 hoping that they will
perform in accordance with the expectations of the just-born performance scheme. Is this an
overture to the page-turner of success or endless soap-opera of debacle?
Nobody yet invented the universal formula that govern the provision of air navigation
services for any given combination of air traffic flow, its variability and complexity,
airspace configuration and operational environment. It is only certain that the magic
formula should in order to fit snugly in any case, simultaneously consider variables of
people, procedures, systems and environment. The authors of this book are proving
the statement as their contributions focus on developments in the field of air
navigation services from a wealth of particular different aspects....
The objective is to replace progressively voice communication for air traffic management by data communications services for safety reasons and because it supports increased automation in the aircraft and on the ground
