Taking students and instructors step by step through the major issues surrounding the use of English in the aviation industry, this book provides a clear introduction to turning research into practice in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and a valuable case study o...f applied linguistics in action. With both cutting-edge research and evidence-based practice, the authors, all experts in this field, explore the critical role of English in aviation across a variety of contexts. These include the national and global policies impacting training and language assessment for pilots, air-traffic controllers, ground staff and students. Focusing on a very important but not well addressed area of ESP research and pedagogy, this book uses a range of corpus-based findings, simulator transcripts, and related research to provide an effective and efficient analysis of the language needs of the aviation industry and an extended look at linguistic principles in action. With case studies, transcriptions, radiotelephony and a clear breakdown of the common vocabulary and phrasal patterns of aviation discourse, the book offers students and teachers an insight into the requirements and challenges of successful intercultural communication in this industry, as well as clarifying how to teach, develop and assess aviation English language courses.
