About Aviation English

Aviation English is an ICAO requirement

ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) require pilots to communicate in a clear and effective manner. To meet ICAO Language Proficiency Requirement, pilots must attain a minimum of ICAO Level 4 for their pilot licence to get the Radiotelephony endorsement and for pilots to transmit on the aircraft radio. It is advisable when a pilot achieves the minimum ICAO level 4 they undertake further radiotelephony training to attain ICAO Level 5 or 6, the highest level that can be attained.

Use a dialect or accent which is intelligible to the aeronautical community

Given the very nature of international travel, pilots must understand and interpret other pilots with different accents. Our courses offers exposure to international accents.

Intensive airline pilot flight training

In the highly competitive aviation industry, it is essential to get ahead and stay ahead of the competition. This is especially true for international and non-native English-speaking students. Our courses will enhance your knowledge and understanding of Aviation English reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Flight Training Organisations

As a general rule FTO’s require students achieve ICAO Level 4 or IELTS (Academic) Level 6.5 to commence flight training. This requirement is for students to understand the knowledge required, and not just ticking the box. This makes a safer pilot, safer crew and a safer aviation industry.
