Expert feedback and recommendations
At the end of the class you will receive feedback including the variation in your performance, benchmarked against the ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements / AEROSTA Framework Enhanced Proficiency Standards*. You will receive expert guidance on your current level and difficulties and a recommendation for the duration of course you should enrol in, eg 10, 30, 50, 60 or 100 hours. If you then decide to enrol in one of our longer courses to meet the target level you can just pay the difference in course fee. After completing the recommended number of training hours you will be well prepared for the ICAO test.
* Instead of an ambiguous rating of 4/5/6 for each of the ICAO language criteria the AEROSTA Framework Enhanced Proficiency Standards can specifically identify the ease with which a pilot can perform a communicative function. The AEROSTA Framework fleshes out the skeleton of the ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements suggested in ICAO Document 9835.
