The ICAEA Research Group is composed of members of the Association who are currently involved in academic research into English language usage in aeronautical communications.

Areas of study by the Research Group include:

Specific Purpose Training and Testing
Corpus Linguistics
Aviation English as a Lingua Franca
Intercultural Communication

The ICAEA-RG supports the aims of the Association by providing a network for the peer review of research, and a platform to share findings with the aviation English community and wider industry via ICAEA’s website, social media channels, conferences and webinars, and at other industry events.

The activities of the Group also offer ICAEA a sound base of empirical research in the fields of assessment and learning literacy which is used to guide the Association’s projects and events, while enhancing the field’s credibility with all industry stakeholders.

The Group is represented on the ICAEA Board by Neil Bullock and Ana Monteiro.
