    AVIATION ENGLISH INTRODUCTION(English for Aviation Personnel, including special training for Pilots and Air TrafficControllers aligned with the ICAO Language Proficiency Rating Scale)

    Legal ObligationsThe International Civil Aviation Organizations (ICAO) Resolution A32-16 of 1998 states that Council& Commission strengthen provisions... obligating Contracting States to take steps to ensure that airtraffic controllers and flight crews involved in flight operations in airspace where the use of the Englishlanguage is required, are proficient in conducting and comprehending radiotelephonycommunications in the English language.

    In addition, Resolution A36-11 entitled Proficiency in the English language used for radiotelephonycommunications directs the Council to support Contracting States in their implementation of thelanguage proficiency requirements by establishing globally harmonized language testing criteria.The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) grades English Language performance on a scale of1 to 6:

    Level 1: Pre-elementaryLevel 2: ElementaryLevel 3: Pre-Operational

    Level 4: OperationalLevel 5: ExtendedLevel 6: Expert

    By March 2011, ICAO has prescribed that all Air Traffic Controllers, Pilots and staff utilising English inR/T communication in international routes should conform to ICAO English proficiency requirements(i.e. Level 4 or above). Evidence of a certification from an approved test centre is mandatory.Candidates at Level 4 are also required to undertake the test every three (3) years and those at Level 5every SIX (6) years, failing which they would not be licensed to operate on international routes.

    In line with ICAO regulations, pilots, air traffic controllers and aeronautical station operators shalldemonstrate competency in levels in line with all the following SIX (6) descriptors:

    1. Pronunciation2. Structure3. Vocabulary

    4. Fluency5. Comprehension6. Interaction

    The new ICAO English Competency requirements demand a sophisticated, reliable, valid andaccessible training and testing service. ICE is able to offer this service in partnership with GriffithsUniversity in Australia and Aviation English Services (AES), New Zealand.

    The International Centre of Excellence (ICE) recognizes that Language testing is a sophisticatedprofessional activity requiring expert input at every stage: test development, implementation,administration, and scoring.
