People behind the application
The application “English VFR Communication” represents a result of many years of work – recording of communication dialogues during the Flying Revue flight expeditions to many parts of the world, recording and editing expedition videos, photographing during the flight expeditions, preparation of an English VFR Communication textbook, programming the various functionalities of the application, creation of the exemplary communication recordings, programming flight animations, preparing the tests for etc. All of this was made possible by a team of enthusiastic aviation and IT professionals. The key members of the team were:
Martina Skálová – controller FIC Praha Information at Air Traffic Control of Czech Republic
Martina was extremely helpful during the recording of the exemplary communications containing communication dialogues with FIC Information service. Martina also helped to fine tune some of the dialogues so that they would be both, correct and realistic. As the only representative of the fair sex Martina contributed to making the application closer to reality by lending us her voice as many controllers actually are women. You can hear Martina´s voice in all the communications related to FIC Information services and traffic at uncontrolled airports.
Tomáš Koller - TWR/APP Controller at Air Traffic Control of the Czech Republic
Also Tomáš showed a friendly enthusiasm when he was approached with a request for recording the exemplary communications. You can therefore hear Tomáš´s voice in all the exemplary communications related to VFR flights in controlled airspace and at controlled airports.

Pavel Jirsa – chief programmer at Infonia IT company
Pavel focused on the programming of all the main parts of the application – animations, real communication recordings, knowledge tests, exemplary recordings etc. It was interesting to see that though Pavel is not a pilot himself, towards the end of his work on the application he became highly knowledgeable of all the VFR communication rules and practices.

The result of this work represents a backbone of most of the main parts of this application.
