All of them deal with language issues, especially with the standard phraseology devel- oped by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) in order to make aviation communication more consistent, efficient, and safer. To this end, the following questions have to be addressed: - Which role do language and language rules in general and (non-native) English in particular play for aviation communication? - How can the ICAO Standard be applied in every-day practice? - How do deviations from the standard phraseology affect the daily routine of pilots and controllers? - How can language training for controllers and...
