Test 01 - Transcription

Part I – AVIATION TOPICS


Ok, shall we start? In this part, you will answer some questions related to aviation.


1) How can a pilot get prepared to start a missed approach?


2) How was your first flight as a pilot?


3) What do you think will happen in the future in relation to job opportunities for pilots?


Thank you. This is the end of part one. Let’s move on to the second part of the test.


Part II – INTERACTING AS A PILOT


In this part, you will interact with the Air Traffic Control in five different situations. You may ask the controller to say again once. After listening to the controller, you should interact as the pilot. All information is important. You may take notes if you wish. You are the pilot of a twin-engined aircraft. Your call sign is ANAC 123. Are the instructions clear? OK, so let’s start. Situation number one:


Situation 1) You are landing at Wichita Airport. Listen to Wichita Tower and read back.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Wichita Tower. You are cleared to land ILS runway 19 Left. Wind is 170
degrees at 10 knots, gusting 25 knots. Be aware of flock of birds on the short final.


Now, tell Wichita Tower that you have to discontinue your approach due to a flock of birds over the
threshold.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Wichita Tower. Climb to 4,000 feet and turn left. Confirm if you are going
around due to wind shear.


What did the controller say?


Thank you. This is the end of situation number 1. Now, situation number 2.


Situation 2) You are going to land at Malpensa Airport in Milan. Listen to Milan Center and read back.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Descend to FL100. Pass ODINA INTERSECTION above FL180. When reaching FL100, call Milan Radar on frequency 126.3.


Now, when reaching FL100, you notice that your first officer is unconscious. Call Milan Radar to report the situation and inform them about your intentions.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Milan Radar. Confirm your captain is incapacitated. Proceed direct to Saronno VOR and descend to 3,000 feet.


What did the controller say?


Thank you. This is the end of situation number 2. Now, situation number 3.


Situation 3) You are at Charlotte International Airport and you are waiting for takeoff clearance. Listen to Charlotte Tower and read back.


Áudio: ANAC 123. You are cleared to align and take-off. Runway 18 Right. Wind 160 degrees at 8 knots. After takeoff, keep runway heading and climb 5,000 feet.


Now, you have fire indication on your engine number 1. So, you decide to abort takeoff. Call Charlotte Tower, inform this situation and your intentions.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Maintain your position. Emergency services are on their way. Do you have a fire indication on your right engine?


What did the controller say?


Thank you. This is the end of situation number 3. Now, situation number 4.


Situation 4) You are on the final approach to land at Guararapes Airport. Listen to Recife Tower and read back.


Áudio: ANAC 123. Maintain approach for runway 18, circling to runway 36. Report on the downwind leg.


Now, you were cleared to land and this situation happened to you. Call Recife Tower to report this
situation and your intentions.

Áudio: ANAC 123. Turn left. Report on downwind leg. Runway 36. Confirm if you are going around because of a runway incursion.


What did the controller say?


Thank you. This is the end of situation number 4. Now, situation number 5.


Situation 5) You are on a cruise flight from Lisbon to Frankfurt. You start facing strong winds and you request to descend. Listen to Frankfurt Center and read back.


Áudio: ANAC 123. You are cleared to descend to FL300. Reduce speed Mach.72 due to traffic saturation.


Now, when you reached FL300 this situation happened to you. Call Frankfurt Center, inform this situation and ask vectors to Frankfurt Airport.

Áudio: ANAC 123. Descend to FL240. Heading 120. I understood you lost your weather radar. Confirm.
 

What did the controller say?


Thank you. This is the end of part two. Let’s move on to the third part of the test.

Part III – UNEXPECTED SITUATIONS

In this part of the test, you will listen to three different communications between pilots and air traffic controllers.


The recordings will be played twice. There is a five-second pause before the recording is repeated. After listening to the recording, you should tell me everything that the pilot and the controller said. I will then ask you a question.


At the end of Part three, I will ask you to compare the three situations, so please take notes. All information is important. Do you have any questions?


Situation 1)
Pilot: MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY. Luton Tower. Easy Jet 245. We have fire in the cargo compartment. We request vectors for priority landing.


ATC: Easy Jet 245. You are cleared to land on runway 26. Fire fighters will be standing by.

 

Tell me everything you heard, please.


What could give rise to fire in the cargo compartment?


Situation 2)
Pilot: Cleveland Approach. American 4781. There is incidence of hot air balloons in the vicinity of the airport. We intend to climb to 6,000 feet and to divert to Detroit.


ATC: American 4781. Roger. Cleared to climb to 6,000 feet. Turn right. Heading 345. Contact Detroit Approach on frequency 125.15.


Tell me everything you heard, please.


From your point of view, how can hot air balloons jeopardize the safety of the flight?


Situation 3)
Pilot: MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY. Barcelona Departure. EC-TMA. We have unreliable airspeed indication. We request vectors for immediate return.


ATC: EC-TMA. Cleared for immediate return to Barcelona Airport. Turn right. Heading 302. Contact Barcelona Approach on 119.1 for further instructions.


Tell me everything you heard, please.


What are the threats when an aircraft has unreliable airspeed indication?


Now, after listening to these three situations:

How would you compare them, which one do you think is the most difficult to deal with and why? You may want to compare them in terms of severity, possible solutions or ways of prevention.

Thank you! This is the end of part three. Let’s now move on to the last part of the test, part four.

Part IV - PICTURE DESCRIPTION AND  DISCUSSION

In this part of the test, you will tell me what you can see in this picture and what you think is happening in it. After that, I will ask you some questions. Look at the picture carefully. You may take a few moments to think before you start talking.
 

Are the instructions clear?


1) Please describe this picture to me.


2) What do you think happened before this picture was taken?


3) Now imagine that this picture has just been taken: What do you think will happen next?


4) Under what circumstances could it have happened?

5) Can you imagine improvements that could prevent a tail-strike in the future?


6) Now, I am going to read a statement to you and then you will have to tell me to what extent you agree or disagree with it: “It is difficult to identify a cause for tail-strikes once there are a lot of factors involved.”


Ok, thank you! So this is the end of the test.
