For radio communications, aviation predominantly uses the English language. In order to be able to communicate correctly with the air traffic control, authorization for VFR communication ("voice") must be obtained. The practical training takes place in the classroom, where flights are simulated to become familiar with the aerial radio procedures. The eligibility is granted after passing an exam that includes not only a theoretical but also a practical part (simulated flight). In this exam, candidates must demonstrate that they are proficient in ICAO standard phraseology and familiar with applicable regulations and procedures.
The theory of practical VFR communication is taught in subject 090 (VFR communication) and the associated theory exam must be completed with all other eight theory subjects at the FOCA.
If you can prove more than 100 flight hours in an English-speaking area, you will be credited for the radio telephony check for all license levels.
Mountainflyers regularly conduct VFR communication ("voice course") courses.
