ICAO Requirements

English is the international language of aviation.

This means that clear communication in English is absolutely critical to aviation safety. The current ICAO English language requirements came about as a result of a study showing that 75% of all aviation incidents and accidents worldwide included a language-related element: either a misunderstanding between the controller and a pilot or between two pilots.

Level 6 Expert
Level 5 Extended
Level 4 Operational
Level 3 Pre-operational
Level 2 Elementary
Level 1 Pre-elementary

This course has been designed to meet the standards of ICAO Level IV 'Operational' - using a variety of interactive activities to improve vocabulary, structure, pronunciation, fluency, comprehension and interaction.


Radio Telephony in This Course 

This course is designed to teach Aviation English to a standard sufficient to achieve ICAO Level 4. Since Radio-telephony (RT) standards differ from region to region, an effort has been made to include examples of standard and non-standard phrases, instructions and commands from every region.

For example, a pilot in Europe might read back a clearance to climb like this:

'Climb flight level two-hundred. Jet two-three-two papa'

Whereas a pilot in North America might read the same clearance back like this:

'Climbing flight level two-zero-zero. Jet two thirty-two papa'

And a pilot in southern Asia might read the same clearance back thus:

'Jet two-three-two papa. Climb level two zero zero'

Our goal is to have our students comprehend and become accustomed to the regional dialects and terms used in aviation across the world.
