Pilot IFR is an ICAO English test designed for commercial and private pilots with an Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) license.
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) pilots operate aircraft in low visibility conditions and rely heavily on radio communications to navigate and communicate with air traffic control. They must comprehend and respond accurately to ATC instructions and communicate effectively with other aviation professionals. Therefore ICAO requires that IRF pilots demonstrate a high level of English proficiency in both listening and speaking.
The ICAO English test for IFR pilots assesses the candidate’s ability to understand and respond to ATC instructions, read and interpret flight-related documentation, and communicate effectively in various operational situations.
The test includes four proficiency levels: Expert, Operational, Extended, and Pre-operational, with Expert being the highest level.
