PART 2 – SIMULATION

In Part 2A you will hear 6 recordings in which a pilot or controller is talking in a non-routine aviation situation. After each recording, you

should show you understand the situation fully by reporting your answers to 2 questions:  “what was the message?”, and “who do you

think was speaking, a pilot or a controller?”. You will be given a Task Card to remind you of these 2 questions. The examiner will ask you

to “report what you can”. You should show that you understood the situation by reporting it either in your own words or using the words

in the recording.  All the information in the situation is important.  This includes stating what the message was and who was speaking

(whether it was a pilot or controller). If you do not give all of the information, it will affect your score.

You will receive a Task Card that looks like this to remind you of the questions.

Now listen to 6 situations.  Try to answer the two questions. You may hear each recording twice if necessary.  Answers are at the end.

In Part 2B you will hear 4 longer recordings in which a pilot or controller describes a problem, says what they need, and gives some

extra details. The examiner will give you a pen for you to take notes on the Task Card. You need to report the message as fully as

possible - the more details you can provide, the better. You should describe the problem, say what the speaker needs and give any extra

details that you can. If you do not give all of the information, it will affect your score.

The Task Card will look like this, and you will receive a pen to take notes.

NO ONE EXCEPT YOU WILL READ YOUR NOTES.  THE NOTES WILL BE WIPED AFTER THE TEST.  THE NOTES WILL NEVER BE USED AS

PART OF THE ASSESSMENT.

For a real simulation, you may wish to download and print the PDF of the Task Card (here) to write on, as you play the audios.

In Part 2C you will hear 3 short recordings in more general, non-routine situations. After each recording, you have 20 seconds to ask the

speaker questions to find out more about the situation. Show you understand the situation by asking as many relevant questions as you

can. The examiner will also ask you if you have any advice to give the speaker: again, show you understand the situation by giving some

relevant advice.

Listen to the following situations.  What questions do you think are relevant?  What advice could you give?
