In 2003, ICAO set a deadline,(March 2008) for English language proficiency at Level 4 and above for all pilots flying international routes as well as air traffic controllers serving international airports and routes.
For States which were not able to meet the March 2008 deadline, full implementation was to be completed by March 2011.
The proficiency scale ranges from Level 1 to Level 6,

The Santos Dumont English Assessment is an oral interview divided into four parts:
Part I - Pilot's Background
Part II - Interacting as a Pilot
Part III - Emergency Situations
Part IV - Aviation Topics
At SDEA, the skills subject to evaluation are: pronunciation, grammar structures, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and interaction. The examination is based on the holistic descriptors and scale of language proficiency determined by ICAO, which is contained in Appendix A of the RBAC 61.
The current format of the SDEA was developed to distinguish the following levels of linguistic proficiency :
Advanced (5) , Operational (4), Pre-operational (3), Elementary (2) and Pre-elementary (1).
For each of the six skills evaluated, one level is assigned: the candidate's final grade is equal to the lowest of them.
