New ab-initio to level 4 classroom course

Foundation Aviation English: an intensive course for ab-initio or pre-sessional students. Focussed on basic aviation concepts and essential language for study and work. This course promotes interactive group based oral activities, listening and speaking skills and self expression. It is content based, progressive in language challenges and theme based. It is a good baseline course for those interested in ICAO Level 4 proficiency.

ICAO English Language Proficiency Assessments

The final deadline for compliance with ICAO language proficiency requirements was March 5 2011. Most pilots and controllers below level 6 will need a programme of upkeep to help them maintain level between tests. In addition, ICAO intends to carry out spot checks on proficiency levels via the safety audit program. Do you have a language maintenance programme in place?
