DUBROVNIK 2017:  WORKSHOP

“The ICAO LPRs – 10 years on:  Progress or Pain?”

An exploration of what has and hasn’t worked since the introduction of the ICAO LPRs

Dubrovnik, Croatia – 24th & 25th April, 2017

ICAEA held a highly successful 2-day workshop in Dubrovnik, organised in collaboration with Croatia Control Ltd – Croatia’s ANSP. With delegates from over 35 countries, this was our most well-attended recent event.

More than a decade after the ICAO LPRs were announced in 2005, most international pilots and controllers have now been through at least two testing cycles. In this workshop we reviewed how different approaches to LPR testing have affected:

  • language training and the effectiveness of teaching and learning,
  • regulators’, airlines’ and ANSPs’ perceptions of English language proficiency and its effect on safety,
  • individuals’ attitudes towards the use of English in their jobs,
  • the effect of the LPRs on air-ground communications.

Based on feedback from our 2016 Workshop in the Azores, this event included Presentations and Workshops led by expert speakers, Q&A Panels for follow-up discussion, and networking and social opportunities.
