The ICAO Language Proficiency Test is an important component of the cadet pilot selection process. The purpose of the ICAO language proficiency requirements is to ensure that the language proficiency of pilots and air traffic controllers is sufficient to reduce miscommunication as much as possible and to allow pilots and controllers to recognise and solve potential miscommunication when it does occur (ICAO Document 9835).
