Aviation Maintenance English Language

Course description

The Aviation Maintenance English course is designed for flight-line and aircraft maintenance staff to introduce aviation and technical vocabulary, functional language and grammatical structures to enhance ability to communicate internationally.

Given that most aircraft maintenance courses require candidates to have a minimum achievement of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Level 5.5 or the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) B2, we will develop language skills from IELTS Level 4 or CEFR B1 to meet the course entry standard. Moreover, the language and vocabulary will be directly related to aircraft maintenance and engineering.

Course objectives

The course covers the following topics:

  • Workshop tools and equipment
  • Avionics
  • Aerodynamics
  • Materials and composites
  • Airframes
  • Propulsion
  • Hydraulics
  • Electrics
  • Maintenance, repair and overhaul

As required by the client, we can include English language associated with mathematics, physics, material science, human factors and legislation.

At the end of the course candidates will have:

  • Developed a range of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills relevant to language used by aviators and technicians.
  • Demonstrated an ability to use English grammatical structures to communicate effectively.
  • Used specific reading techniques and strategies, developed listening skills and improved note taking and written work.
