Books in language learning and teaching have an undeniable significant role. Since English language teaching is essential for air traffic controllers and pilots all around the world, the aim of this study is to clarify the role of a coursebook used in educating and training air traffic controllers and pilots. This study conducted an analysis and evaluation of an ESP book in aviation industry named “English for Aviation for Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers” by Oxford University Press. The analysis of this book is done by responding to the five questions about skills, content, sequencing, sociolinguistic factor of variety of language and format. To do this, a series of checklists from “teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages: Substance and Techniques” by Betty W. Robinett(1978), “Choosing your Coursebook” by Alan Cunningsworth(1995), and “Language Curriculum Design” by Nation(2010) were used. “English for Aviation for Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers” is analyzed and evaluated as suitable book for both purposes of classroom book and self-study. Notwithstanding some weaknesses, the book can satisfy the needs and interests of students whom are pilots and air traffic controllers to do their job with the first goal of safety.
