FAA Issues English Skills Guidance

On Dec. 11, the FAA issued advisory circular 60-28A to provide guidance for airman applicants, training organizations, designated examiners, and aviation safety inspectors (ASI) in determining English language skills currently required for airman certification under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations parts 61, 63, and 65.

The circular outlines the requirements under these parts that applicants be able to read, write, speak, and understand the English language and demonstrate an ability to use standard terminology for radio communications. If a person holding an airman certificate issued under the above parts does not meet these standards, their certificate can be suspended or revoked.

The document guides designated examiners and ASIs in determining an applicant's proficiency through practical reading and writing tests and other methods.

The complete advisory circular is available here. more
