Description

The introduction of the ICAO LPRs in 2011 caused significant challenges for CAAs responsible for their implementation among ICAO Contracting States. While the new requirements were drawn up in response to several accidents involving professional ATCOs and pilots, the changes affected all license holders. This presentation highlights how aeronautical communication issues still occur frequently. The need for a good standard of ICAO (English) language proficiency assessment has never been so clear. This will be followed by a review of the impact of the changes, the challenges for CAAs, the current situation and a proposal for an alternative approach towards language proficiency endorsement and ATCO and pilot licensing.
