3) In your opinion, what is the importance of using simulators to train pilots for emergency situations?

 

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.

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. De Gaulle Tower. Air France 047. We have partial control of the aileron. Our hydraulic pressure is falling. We request an emergency landing.

 

ATC: Air France 047. Roger. Descend to 3,000 feet. Maintain heading. Cleared to land, runway 08 Left. Be advised the runway has 2,500 meters.

 

Tell me everything you heard, please. In your opinion, what other factors could make it difficult to control an aircraft?

 

Situation 2) Pilot: PAN PAN PAN PAN PAN PAN. Miami Center. Air Europa 1604. We have unreliable airspeed indication. We request vectors to divert to Miami Airport.

 

ATC: Air Europa 1604. Roger. Descend to 10,000 feet. Turn right. Heading 010. When reaching 10,000 feet, contact Miami Approach on 124.85.

 

Tell me everything you heard, please. From your point of view, what are the threats of an unreliable airspeed indication?

 

Situation 3) Pilot: Brasilia Center. PR-WSW. We have a failure with our GPS and our IPAD is inoperative. We are climbing to FL360. Heading 350. We are unable to inform our estimated time to Alta Floresta VOR.

 

ATC: PR-WSW. Roger. Proceed with the conventional navigation system. Climb and maintain FL360. Fly in the radial 355 until 80 nm from Brasilia VOR. When intercepting Brasilia VOR, cleared to Alta Floresta VOR.

 

Tell me everything you heard, please. In your opinion, to what extent is the GPS navigation reliable?

 

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) From your point of view, how can a big-size aircraft interfere in the operations of an airport?

 

5) In your opinion, how can an operation of a big-size aircraft jeopardize the environment?

 

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: “To the detriment of its high operating cost, wide-body aircraft tend to lose market share for the narrow-body aircraft”.

 

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