    The ICAO LPRs - towards an awareness of stakeholder skills and interdependency

    Summary: Recent research showed the value that key stakeholders in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Language Proficiency Requirements (LPRs) attribute to the skills and knowledge required for each of their roles. This webinar will investigate this research and show how developing these skills and knowledge within an awareness of the interdependency of all stakeholder roles can help the LPR system evolve while addressing important issues as they arise to better ensure effective and safe aeronautical communication.
