English for Aviation: Flightpath

Based on the curriculum developed by Cambridge University Press, Flightpath is the definitive course for pilots and Air Traffic Controllers who need an ICAO Level 4 of English to Flight Pathwork in the industry. Flightpath is the only Aviation English course to offer a thorough grounding in the full range of communication skills needed by aviation professionals to communicate in non-routine situations. With regular focus on ICAO criteria, learners are given full support in reaching industry standards, including case studies, analysis of their own communication skills, exposure to authentic in-flight communication, and communicative tasks.  The course includes a specifically developed aviation vocabulary list to enable mastery of vocabulary.

Flightpath is the most accurate preparation course available for any ICAO Level 4 language test, and includes authentic industry training video. Flightpath has been reviewed and endorsed by a panel of leading aviation communication and safety professionals.

This course was designed by Philip Shawcross, who has been working in Aviation English since 1972, as a language trainer, technical trainer and technical English consultant for Airbus, Aerospatiale, Air France, and others.  He has been president of ICAEA since 2007.
