Taking readers step-by-step through the major issues surrounding the use of English in the global aviation industry, this book provides a clear introduction to turning research into practice in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP), specifically Aviation English, and a valuable case study of applied linguistics in action. With both cutting-edge research and evidence-based practice, the critical role of English in aviation is explored across a variety of contexts, including the national and global policies impacting training and language assessment for pilots, air-traffic controllers, ground staff, and students. English in Global Aviation teaches readers how to apply linguistic research to real world, practical settings. The book uses a range of corpus-based findings and related research to provide an effective analysis of the language needs of the aviation industry and an extended look at linguistic principles in action. Readers are presented with case studies, transcriptions, radiotelephony, and a clear breakdown of the common vocabulary and phrasal patterns of aviation discourse. Students and teachers of both linguistics and aviation will discover the requirements and challenges of successful intercultural communication in this industry, as well as insights into how to teach, develop, and assess aviation English language courses.

With the teaching and testing of Aviation English undergoing such rapid expansion, this comprehensive and accessible volume will be invaluable to researchers and practitioners alike. It is particularly pleasing to see that the scope of the work extends well beyond the traditional focus on communication between pilots and air traffic controllers. * John Read, Emeritus Professor of Applied Language Studies, University of Auckland, New Zealand * An invaluable contribution to improving the safety of the most global of all businesses. By addressing both linguistics and human factors, this book will enhance teacher training and testing and promote best practices in communication throughout the aviation industry. It also establishes a foundation for continuing research with the potential to heighten awareness of risk factors and enhance future investigations. As the world's leading aviation educator, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University takes our responsibility to ensure safer skies seriously. English in Global Aviation provides us with a new tool to build proficiency in the international language of civil aviation for pilots, mechanics and air traffic controllers. * P. Barry Butler, President, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, USA * This book explains why and how English became the lingua franca of aviation. It demonstrates through the history of accidents and near-misses, together with research findings, that mastery of phraseology is insufficient for safety of flight. Experts in their area, the writers narrate the story in academic and professional voices, making this an authoritative work on the topic, and keeping the reader interested from cover to cover. * Marjo Mitsutomi, Professor, Department of Foreign Language, Osaka Gakuin University, Japan *
