For Pilots

ULEADAIR courses VFR, IFR and Advances Communications have a particular method of teaching that combines competency based learning with Scenario-based learning using ATC controllers as instructors. This unique combination lets the student pilots learn ATC communications in conjunction with a procedures or phase of flight. This helps the student situate themselves in flight and learn simultaneously phraseology, procedures, rules and regulations, unexpected situation and much more in a realistic scenario with a live ATC controllers correcting and helping them every step of the way.


Level 3: Procedures and Communications (VFR)

The VFR course was created for student pilots that will soon learn to fly in the United States and want to finish their flight training with ease and with a faster learning curve. We dedicate this course to learning all of the essential phraseology, terminology, vocabulary, procedures, regulation, airspaces, FBO´s, FSS and other facilities that a pilot needs to know to fly VFR in the U.S. either before their flight training or during. The ATC controllers teach the students from airport diagram interpretation with corresponding ground instructions all the way to completing a cross country with all its corresponding elements, knowing airspace rules, filling your flight plan, plotting directions and altitude on your flight and much more. .

Level 4: Unexpected Flight Situations (IFR)


Student pilots will learn to establish a relationship of understanding with ATC that warrants a safe flight (even if they make mistakes, they are able to correct themselves so that ultimately there are no confusion). They develop the capacity to obtain and share information about the flight operation in a more fluent and structured manner, using the kind of language that ATC in the US understand –in normal and abnormal situations. Student pilots gain airmanship skills as they face unexpected situations on a regular basis and use new language resources in plain English to deal with them and report them to ATC.

Level 5: Advanced Communications (IFR)


Student pilots will be able to handle with ease communications with ATC in non-routine and unexpected flight situations. They will be able to patch up any communication gaps or misunderstandings through a better awareness of the management of the interaction with ATC. With emphasis given on the verification of information and agreements in the coordination of tasks between pilot and ATC, the pilot becomes highly proficient in task management, problem-solving and not taking things for granted, even in situations that call for quicker readbacks, or more complex requests to and negotiations with ATC using plain English.

Modules Classes Hours
1) Dealing with Ongoing and Future Situations 5 10
2) Coordinating and Planning with ATC 5 10
3) Saying the Right Words 5 10
4) Setting the Record Straight 5 10
5) Confusion and Misunderstanding Affecting the Operations 5 10

Private classes with professional controler


Private Session (like FAA Check Ride preparation) Classes Hours
Private session with an american controller. You can choose your route and make a virtual practice before you make your flight. Reviewing departures, arrivals, taxiing in the airport and simulating all communications involve in the process. 1 2

All our courses follow the recomendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). We use the same English levels according to the ICAO descriptors.
