Sample ICAO test questions

1. What’s your name and date of birth?


2. What do you like about your job?
3. How do your family feel about your job?
4. What aircraft would you most like to fly?
5. What is the best thing about being a pilot?
6. Did you ever have any doubts about becoming a pilot?
7. How did you become interested in aviation?
8. What do you do to maintain your health?
9. What is the most difficult part of your job?
10. What happened during your first solo?

Of course, your answers will be different from your colleagues so memorisation isn’t going
to help. And yes, some people (not our students) really do try to memorise answers! You
are going to need to be able to answer questions for yourself and in the correct tense, with
suitable articles, prepositions and clauses.

You will also need sufficient plain English vocabulary to answer common questions. In
short, your assessor will be able to find out a lot about your level of English by how you
answer simple questions. So let’s practice grammar by looking at the questions above –
consider which are about the past, which are about the present, and which are about the
future? How would you answer them?

ICAO English test answers

These are some answers to questions asked in an ICAO English test. What do you think the
questions were? The answers don’t necessarily relate to the questions above.

• June 25th
• Definitely the F14 Tomcat because of the swing wings
• Being able to visit many different locations around the world.
• I experienced some unexpected weather conditions.
• They are very supportive but it requires a lot of hard work to maintain relationships.
• As part of military service.
• Ever since I was a child.
• I used to collect model aircraft when I was a boy and I became fascinated about how
they work.
• Kuala Lumpur
• Air Asia

Practice paraphrasing
There is more than one possible question to match each answer above, and also more than
one way to ask a question. Practice paraphrasing by asking the questions you came up with
in a different way. For example:

• When were you born? / What is your date of birth?


• What is your motivation for becoming a pilot? / Why did you want to become a pilot?
