Three Purdue alumni, including a graduate of Purdue Polytechnic’s School of Aviation and Transportation Technology, will be using an app they created to help more members of the U.S. Air Force advance critical communication skills to keep them safe in the cockpit.
PlaneEnglish, an aviation radio simulator app, helps new pilots become proficient in aviation phraseology and communication through more than 50 lessons, aiming to help new pilots reach Federal Aviation Administration and International Civil Aviation Organization standards for English language use.
