To help pilots and controllers meet new ICAO language proficiency requirements taking effect next March, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has introduced an aviation English program at its main campus in Daytona Beach, Florida. The course involves Web-based and classroom instruction developed by Embry-Riddle and partner Aviation English Services of New Zealand. ICAO developed the new set of required English proficiency standards for its 189 contracting countries in response to growing concern about communication errors in a number of high-profile accidents. English is the official language of aviation worldwide.
