The FRTOL practical examination is conducted on a communications simulator that is connected to a computer. Candidates are given a chart, a list of radio frequencies, a plog and a set of instructions. The simulated route includes other air traffic, which is replied to by the various groundstations. The route encounters military air traffic zones (MATZ) and controlled airspace. The use of air traffic services outside controlled airspace (ATSOCA) such as a Basic Service and Traffic Service are encouraged, along with a few emergency procedures thrown in to keep you on your toes. The practical exam normally takes around 45 minutes to complete.
