Description

Working pilots with no prior knowledge of English struggle to attain and maintain ICAO Operational Level 4. They often have little understanding of English beyond the requirements of ICAO. This causes difficulties in aircraft technical training and CRM/TEM. A two-pronged approach to Aviation English training for pilots is needed. Ab-initio pilots should be immersed in an English training environment which fosters attainment of expert level English. Current civil pilots need English training materials delivered to them on their hand-held devices for ease of access while on trips. This should be targeted at systems and procedural knowledge.
