Aviation English for controllers

On IVAO you have pilots, and controllers. If one of those two parts doesn't know their Aviation English perfectly, communication becomes difficult. Also it makes IVAO much more realistic if the English is correct .... it's like in real life !
As you know you can login as a different types of controllers. The different possibilities are EBBR_DEL (delivery), EBBR_GND (ground), EBBR_TWR (tower), EBBR_DEP (departure), EBBR_APP (approach) and EBBU_CTR (Brussels Control).
note: It's not Brussels Center but BRUSSELS CONTROL !
Below you will find a list of all the different controllers, with what they have to say. Be sure to respect the FRA's.
 
1) EBBR_DEL

EBBR_DEL gives all the clearances to the aircrafts. It's quite an important position because you have to give a correct route, a correct squawk code and you have to be sure the flightplan is correct. You can only do that with good documentation. As a controller you should have all charts of EBBR. The SID's are important to give good departure routes.

A very easy document is the Quickview of EBBR which you can find here: Quickview

On this PDF you can find all correct departure
routes, squawk codes, runway's, etc ... You can find every most imporant information. The pilot will ALWAYS contact the controller first and in most cases he will do a RADIOCHECK.

Pilot: Brussels Departure, TUB022, Radiocheck. (*1)

ATC: TUB022, Read you 5.

Pilot: Brussels Departure, TUB022, Stand 208, request start-up, information Alpha.(*2)

ATC: TUB022, start-up approved, cleared to Schiphol Amsterdam via HELEN3C departure, runway 25R, climb to FL60, Squawk 4401.(*3)

Pilot: Start-up approved, Cleared to Schiphol Amsterdam via HELEN3C departure, runway 25R, climb to FL60, squawk 4401, TUB022

ATC: TUB022, correct. Contact Brussels Ground 121.875.

Pilot: Contact Brussels Ground 121.875, TUB022.

2) EBBR_GND

EBBR_GND gives all the taxi clearances. He has to know the whole airport or at least have a ground chart of EBBR.

Pilot: Brussels Ground, TUB022, stand 155, request pushback.

ATC: TUB022, Pushback approved, report ready to taxi.

Pilot: Pushback approved, report ready for taxi, TUB022

Pilot: TUB022, request taxi.

ATC: TUB022, taxi to holding Point B1, runway 25R, via R4 and Outer, QNH 1012.

Pilot: Taxi to holding point B1, runway 25R, via R4 and Outer, QNH 1012, TUB022

Pilot: TUB022, At holding point B1, ready for Departure.

ATC: TUB022, contact Brussels Tower 118.600. (Last 2 zero's are not pronounced.)

Pilot: Contact Brussels Tower 118.600, TUB022.

note: EBBR_GND is also responsible for the ground traffic for inbound aircraft.

3) EBBR_TWR

EBBR_TWR gives all take-off and landing clearances. He also decides which runways are in use. Every other controller has to adapt to his runway choice. EBBR_TWR has control in a circle of 10 NM around the airport and until 1500ft.

Pilot: TUB022, holding point B1, ready for Departure.

ATC: TUB022, Line up and wait runway 25R.

Pilot: Line up and wait runway 25R, TUB022

ATC: TUB022, Wind 175°, 10kts, runway 25R, cleared for take-off. When airborne contact Brussels Departure 126.625.

Pilot: Runway 25R, cleared for Take-off, contact Brussels Departure 126.635 when airborne, TUB022.

Tower TO


Pilot: Brussels Tower, AFR348, established on the localiser runway 25L

ATC AFR348, Brussels Tower, wind 180°, 7kts, runway 25L, cleared to land.

Pilot: Runway 25L, cleared to land, AFR348.

Pilot: AFR348, vacated runway via C4.

ATC: AFR348, contact Brussels Ground 121.875

Pilot: Contact Brussels Ground 121.875, AFR348

Tower LD


4) EBBR_DEP

EBBR_DEP has the control of departing traffic.

Pilot: Brussels Departure, TUB022, HELEN3C departure, climbing to FL60.

ATC: TUB022, Identified on departure passing 1000ft, recleared HELEN direct, climb to FL70.

Pilot: HELEN direct, climb to FL70, TUB022.

ATC: TUB022, contact Brussels Control 131.100.

Pilot: Contact Brussels Control 131.100, TUB022.

DEP


5) EBBR_APP

EBBR_APP gives all the approach clearances. He also must be able to control inbound traffic to the airports of Antwerp and Charleroi. In this example we use AFR348 which is doing an approach for runway 25L via FLO (flora)

Pilot: Brussels Approach, AFR348, inbound Flora, descending to FL60, information Echo.

ATC: AFR348, Brussels Approach, radar contact, after FLORA fly heading 290°, reduce speed to 250kts, expect vectors for ILS Approach runway 25L.

Pilot: After FLORA fly heading 290, reduce speed to 250kts, expect vectors for ILS Approach runway 25L, AFR348.

FLO


ATC (when aircraft is at FLO): AFR348, descend to 4000ft, QNH 1012.

Pilot: Descend to 4000ft, QNH 1012, AFR348.

ATC: AFR348, descend 3000ft, turn left heading 280°, cleared ILS Approach runway 25L, report established, reduce speed to 200kts (if too fast)

Pilot: Descend to 3000ft, turn left heading 280°, cleared ILS Approach runway 25L, report established, AFR348

ILS


Pilot: Established ILS runway 25L, AFR348.

ATC: AFR348, contact Brussels Tower 118.600

Pilot: Contact Brussels Tower 118.600

Tower


6) EBBU_CTR

Brussels Control is much more difficult so we will not explain it on the site. For questions you can always send a mail
