Chapter One of an on-line course for the Brazilian ICAO Test administered by the Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC)
The app contains information about the test, where you can do the test, some study tips and a complete model test with audios.
The Quick Reference Handbook is divided into Sections just like the ICAO Test and focuses on the Six ICAO Proficiencies: Pronunciation; Structure; Vocabulary; Fluency; Comprehension; and Interactions. Throughout the course the student will hear male and female native speakers and radio communications from South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania so as to train their ear to understand different accents. Standard ICAO phraseology is used throughout the course.
Firstly, It has a quick overview of the test, the places where you can do the test, and looks at a Model Test similar to the one on the ANAC website.
It will then study how best to respond to the questions in “Part I: Aviation Topics” which evaluates fluency. There are a total of forty-nine questions covering all the areas in the test. These are divided into seven categories: experience; aircraft and routine; career; training; flight safety; abnormal situations; the future and weather. Audio recordings of the questions and answers are provided for you to train your responses.
It then explains how to complete “Part II: Interacting as a Pilot” which tests for interaction and “Part III: Emergency Situations” which assesses comprehension. Again audio recordings of the situations, questions and answers are provided for you to train your responses.
Lastly it explains Part IV of the test “Picture Description and Discussion” which assesses fluency. Audio recordings of the questions and answers are provided for you to train your responses.
You can navigate through the Quick Reference Handbook by clicking on “Next” or “Previous” or you can jump to any page in the course by using the “Chapters” button. You can listen to the audios by clicking on the “Headphones” icon.
The Quick Reference Handbook focuses on techniques to pass the Brazilian ICAO test, the Santos Dumont English Assessment, administered by ANAC, the Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority, and its aim is not to teach Aviation English. The material in the course will be updated in accordance with any future changes to the test.
