There are two types of exams „level 4-6“ and „level 4only“.
ICAO LPT L4-6:
In the first part of the exam, you will be presented with 18 questions to which you will answer casually. These include general questions such as your flight training, your flying history, your last or upcoming flight, or even your favorite destinations. After the first four questions you will see pictures. Picture1: Apply std. phraseology to numbers – Picture2: Apply std. phraseology to letters – picture 3 and picture 4: Briefly describe aviation pictures, what you can see. Further you will see questions about Flight-Safety, Emergency-Situation and Various-Topics. In addition, 2 ATIS announcements will be played to you, the content of which you will note down and reproduce. Finally, you will hear excerpts from the aeronautical radio traffic, which you have to read back.
(Part I of the exam approx. 15-20 minutes)
ICAO LPT L4ONLY:
This exam is very similar to the open book exam. The questions are the same. However, you will only be asked 12 questions. You will not be required to make an ATIS interpretation. Therefore, you will be finished much faster in part I of the exam.
(Part I of the exam takes about 10-15 minutes).
Validity for both exams: Part II „Interview“
After the above-mentioned Part I of the exam, the second part will then consist of a 15-minute free conversation with the language examiner. The topics do not matter, you can talk about anything. The examiner will have to switch off his camera for a certain time, so that the voice-only part is also given.
After the exam, the performance shown will be evaluated and within 1-2 working days you will receive your ICAO language certificate by mail with all the documents you need for the certificate registration.
During the post-assessment, the ICAO language level corresponding to your language proficiency will be determined and issued, i.e. Level 4, Level 5 or Level 6 in the case of the open examination. In the case of the Level 4 examination, a maximum of Level 4 will be confirmed.
Validity for pilots: L4: 4 years || L5: 6 years || L6: Indefinite
