Conference Theme

The ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements, in effect since 2008, address speaking and listening requirements for pilot and air traffic controller communications. Although the ICAO LPRs have been implemented globally, their incorporation into effective aviation English testing and training programmes remains a challenge for airlines, air navigation service providers, flight training organisations and licencing authorities.

While the ICAO LPRs specifically relate to language proficiency for air-ground communications between pilots and controllers operating in international contexts, they do not address the wide range of language and communications needs for:

  • English proficiency and inter-cultural communication competence, where language and culture influence the effectiveness of on-board flight crew communications for threat and error management and crew resource management;
  • Inter-cultural communication competence and its role in communication as a human factor for efficient and safe communications between flight crew and ATC;
  • Accommodation skills required by native English speaking personnel when communicating with non-native English speakers;
  • Developing communication strategies to equip personnel to recognise and repair safety-critical communication breakdowns;
  • Reading proficiency among flight crew for comprehension of flight deck Quick Reference Handbooks and flight operating manuals;
  • Reading, speaking, and listening proficiency for trainee pilots and controllers for effective flight or ATC training in English;
  • Reading and writing proficiency required for effective and safe maintenance of aircraft, including comprehension of manuals and writing maintenance logs for communication with flight crew and other airline personnel;
  • Language proficiency for effective communication between dispatchers, flight crew and airline operations personnel.

Join us at this international event where we will look ahead beyond the ICAO LPRs, to consider language as a tool for communication and its role in human factors and safety across a range of aviation professions while continuing to enhance the ongoing testing and training programmes associated with the implementation of the ICAO LPRs.
