The RT courses we run are specifically aimed at not only preparing the student for the written and practical exam but also giving a thorough working knowledge of using the radio in real world situations including flying abroad. The training is carried out by our experienced RT examiner and covers not only the basic information but also the use of modern aircraft equipment such as Mode S transponders and ADS-B . Following on from the theory are various practical sessions simulating flights that a typical licence holder may fly including flights through various types of airspace. The practical lessons finish with a practice route in our FNPT2 DA40 simulator which gives the student the chance to put all that has been learned into practice while actually flying an aircraft and operating modern radios in the form of the Garmin 1000. Following on from this is the written and then practical RT exam.
