Pilots, Crew Flying Internationally Must Demonstrate Use Of
ANN reminds all pilots, flight crew
members and control tower operators who operate internationally
that the International Civil Aviation Organization deadline to
demonstrate English proficiency is fast approaching. Effective
March 5, ICAO will require those certificate holders to show proof
they are skilled in using the English language.
Specifically, the requirement applies to all private,
commercial, and airline transport pilots with powered aircraft
ratings; flight engineers and flight navigators; and control tower
The ability to read, speak, write, and understand English is
already a US regulatory eligibility requirement; the FAA Registry
began issuing all new certificates with this endorsement on
February 11, 2008. The US has notified ICAO that it filed a
difference that will extend the US compliance date until March 5,
2009, in order to provide sufficient time for all affected US
airman certificate holders to comply with the ICAO Language
Proficiency airman certificate endorsement requirements.
Certificates that are ordered as regular replacement
certificates will include the endorsement. Pilots may order a
replacement certificate on-line, or by mail, and there is a $2 fee
for a replacement airmen certificate.
Airmen who request temporary authority or verification of their
airman certificate will not have the English proficiency
endorsement until the replacement certificate has been requested
and the $2 fee paid.
