091 | 092 VFR & IFR communications theory.
Forum rules
This section comprises two JAA ATPL exams 091 VFR Com. and 092 IFR Com. Since their syllabus is short so we combined both of them under 1 section.

Aerodrome Control Service 
Air traffic control service for aerodrome traffic.


Aerodrome Control Radio Station 
A station providing radio communication between an aerodrome control tower and aircraft or mobile aeronautical stations.


Aerodrome Traffic 
All traffic on the manoeuvring area of an aerodrome and all aircraft flying in the vicinity of an aerodrome.

Note: An aircraft is in the vicinity of an aerodrome when it is in, entering or leaving an aerodrome traffic circuit.


Aerodrome Traffic Circuit 
The specified path to be flown by aircraft operating in the vicinity of an aerodrome.


Aeronautical Fixed Service 
A telecommunication service between specified fixed points provided primarily for the safety of air navigation and for the regular, efficient and economical operation of air services.


Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN) 
A world-wide system of aeronautical fixed circuits provided, as part of the aeronautical fixed service, for the exchange of messages and/or digital data between aeronautical fixed stations having the same or compatible communications characteristics.


Aeronautical Mobile Service 
A mobile service between aeronautical stations and aircraft stations, or between aircraft stations, in which survival craft stations may participate: emergency position-indicating radio beacon stations may also participate in this service on designated distress and emergency frequencies.


Aeronautical Station 
A land station in the aeronautical mobile service. In certain instances, an aeronautical station may be located, for example, on board ship or on a platform at sea.


Air-Ground Communication 
Two-way communication between aircraft and stations or locations on the surface of the earth.


Air to Ground Communication 
One-way communication from aircraft to stations or locations on the surface of earth.


Air Traffic 
All aircraft in flight or operating on the manoeuvring area of an aerodrome.


Air Traffic Control Clearance 
Authorisation for an aircraft to proceed under conditions specified by an air traffic control unit.


Air Traffic Service 
A generic term meaning variously, flight information service, alerting service, air traffic advisory service, air traffic control service, area control service, approach control service or aerodrome control service.


Air Traffic Services Unit 
A generic term meaning variously, air traffic control unit, flight information centre or air traffic services reporting office.


Airway 
A control area or portion thereof established in the form of a corridor equipped with radio navigational aids.


Altitude 
The vertical distance of a level, a point or an object considered as a point, measured from mean sea level.


Approach Control Service 
Air traffic control service for arriving or departing controlled flights.


Apron 
A defined area, on a land aerodrome, intended to accommodate aircraft for purposes of loading or unloading passengers, mail or cargo, fuelling, parking or maintenance.


Area Control Centre 
A unit established to provide air traffic control service to controlled flights in control areas under its jurisdiction.


Automatic Terminal Information Service 
The provision of current, routine information, to arriving and departing aircraft by means of continuous and repetitive broadcasts throughout the day or a specified portion of the day.


Blind Transmission 
A transmission from one station to another station in circumstances where two-way communication cannot be established but where it is believed that the called station is able to receive the transmission.


Broadcast 
A transmission of information relating to air navigation that is not addressed to a specific station or stations.


Clearance Limit 
The point to which an aircraft is granted an air traffic control clearance.


Controlled Airspace 
An airspace of defined dimensions within which air traffic control service is provided to controlled flights.


Control Zone 
A controlled airspace extending upwards from the surface of the earth to a specified upper limit.


Expected Approach Time (EAT) 
The time at which ATC expects that an arriving aircraft, following a delay, will leave the holding point to complete its approach for a landing.


Flight Information Centre 
A unit established to provide flight information service and alerting service.


Flight Level 
A surface of constant atmospheric pressure which is related to a specific pressure datum, 1013.2 HPa and is separated from other such surfaces by specific pressure intervals


A pressure type altimeter calibrated in accordance with the Standard Atmosphere:

• when set to a QNH altimeter setting, will indicate altitude.

• when set to QFE altimeter setting, will indicate height above the QFE reference datum.

• when set to a pressure of 1013.2 HPa, may be used to indicate flight levels.



Flight Plan 
Specified information provided to air traffic services units, relative to an intended flight or portions of a flight of an aircraft.


Heading 
The direction in which the longitudinal axis of an aircraft is pointed, usually expressed in degrees from North (true, magnetic, compass or grid).


Holding Point 
A specified location, identified by visual or other means, in the vicinity of which the position of an aircraft in flight is maintained, in accordance with air traffic control clearances.


Holding Procedure 
A predetermined manoeuvre which keeps an aircraft within a specified airspace whilst awaiting further clearance.


IFR Flight 
A flight conducted in accordance with the instrument flight rules.


Instrument Meteorological Conditions 
Meteorological conditions expressed in terms of visibility, distance from cloud, and ceiling, less than the minima specified for visual meteorological conditions.


Level 
A generic term relating to the vertical position of an aircraft in flight and meaning variously, height, altitude or flight level.


Manoeuvring Area 
That part of an aerodrome to be used for the take-off, landing and taxiing of aircraft, excluding aprons.


Missed Approach Procedure 
The procedure to be followed if the approach cannot be continued.


Movement Area 
That part of an aerodrome to be used for the take-off, landing and taxiing of aircraft, consisting of the manoeuvring area and the apron(s).


Radar Approach 
An approach, executed by an aircraft, under the direction of a radar controller.


Radar Identification 
The process of correlating a particular radar blip or radar position symbol with a specific aircraft.


Radar Vectoring 
Provision of navigational guidance to aircraft in the form of specific headings, based on the use of radar.


Read back 
A procedure whereby the receiving station repeats a received message or appropriate part thereof back to the transmitting station so as to obtain

Confirmation of correct reception.


Reporting Point 
A specified geographical location in relation to which the position of an aircraft can be reported.


Runway Visual Range 
The range over which the pilot of an aircraft on the centre line of a runway, can see the runway surface markings or the lights delineating the runway or identifying its centre line.


Telecommunication 
Any transmission, emission or reception of signs, signals, writing, images and sounds or intelligence of any nature by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic systems.


Touchdown 
The point where the nominal glide path intercepts the runway.


Track 
The projection on the earth's surface of the path of an aircraft, the direction of which path at any point is usually expressed in degrees from North (true, magnetic or grid).


VFR Flight 
A flight conducted in accordance with the visual flight rules.


Visual Approach 
An approach by an IFR flight when either part or all of an instrument approach procedure is not completed and the approach is executed in visual reference to terrain.


Visual Meteorological Conditions 
Meteorological conditions expressed in terms of visibility, distance from cloud, and ceiling, equal to or better than specified minima.
