4. Audio task 1. Aviation English (7 min)

For Pilots – Listening and Reporting

For Controllers – Listening and Informing

Tell the candidate:

Now you are going to listen to a recording about a situation in the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur Airport. You will listen to the recording twice. You are allowed to take notes. After you have listened to the recording, you will be asked several questions. Remember as much information as possible. Do you understand?

Transcript of the Recorded Text

The Boeing named Thomas Haywood was less than half-loaded with textiles, computer software and mail when it departed Singapore. Approaching Kuala Lumpur the crew were cleared to route directly to the Kilo Lima beacon for runway three three approach. While on the NDB approach, the crew were cleared to “descend two four zero zero” which was interpreted by the crew as “to four zero zero”. The aircraft descended below minimum altitude and crashed into a hill side at six hundred feet MSL just before reaching the Kilo Lima NDB where minimum descent height was two thousand four hundred feet. The Boeing hit treetops and started to break up until bursting into flames.

Now please answer my questions:

  1. What is this story about?
  2. What was the main cause of the accident?
  3. What cargo was there on board the aircraft?
  4. What else did you understand?

FOR PILOTS:

Please report to ATC about your doubts in correctness of the descent clearance. Use the information from the story.

Should the candidate’s report sound ambiguous to you, tell him/her:

I do not understand you, please rephrase.

FOR CONTROLLERS:

Please inform the crew on the MSA (minimum safe altitude). Use the information from the story.

Should the candidate’s report sound ambiguous to you, tell him/her:

I do not understand you, please rephrase.

This is the end of Part 4.

5. Audio task 2. Listening – Radiotelephony (5 min)
