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: PAN PAN PAN PAN PAN PAN. London Control. Speedbird 4582. We experienced severe turbulence. There is a passenger severely injured. We request immediate return to Heathrow Airport.

 

ATC: Speedbird 4582. Roger. Cleared for immediate return. Expect vectors to runway 27 Left.


Tell me everything you heard, please.


From your point of view, how can severe turbulence be dangerous to an aircraft?


Situation 2)
Pilot: MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY. Beijing Center. Garuda 4758. We’ve suffered a depressurization. Descending from FL310 to FL100.


ATC: Garuda 4758. Roger. Turn left. Heading 270 to avoid traffic. Report reaching FL100.

In your opinion, what are the threats involved during a depressurization?

Pilot: New York Ground. Hainan 3034. Roger. Our passengers are being disembarked. Request a shuttle bus.


Tell me everything you heard, please.


In your opinion, how is the training for flight attendants at air companies?


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.
