"Say Again" - Radiotelephony Practical

The Radiotelephony (RT) Practical exam will be based around an imaginary flight in a radio simulator or on a PC-based system, with your examiner playing the part of the air traffic controller. You’ll make calls and select services appropriate to your ‘flight’, including an urgency PAN and distress MAYDAY calls.

Taking the RT test towards the end of your PPL training means that you’ll have developed your skills with actual radio experience.

However, instructor Ash says, “ I recommend students complete their RT licence prior to their Qualifying Cross-Country flight (QXC). It’s a stressful enough exercise without struggling with the radio.”

There are plenty of resources to help you pass these exams, and your knowledge will develop as you learn to fly, so don’t be fazed – it’s just a case of learning!!
