According to the latest CAR of DGCA ,all the pilots of India have to clear the Level 4 of English Proficiency Test by March,2011, Failure to do so will impose a ban on their license to exercise the privileges of their license.
Their is a big hurdle in accomplishing this task as Level 6 Instructors are needed for taking exams which DGCA does not have currently.
Let me make you aware about this test, This test is not a easy general grammar test, It gonna be a big time hurdle of the Pilots. Special classes are needed to clear this exam. This test consist of fluency,vocabulary, aerodrome communication,comprehension, ATC communication .
