-Pan Am Academy selects Carnegie Speech for English language training.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2012 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

English assessment and instruction software developer Carnegie Speech has announced a global agreement with Pan Am International Flight Academy.

Carnegie Speech's patented language learning technology will now be used at the Academy's training centers in the Unites States and abroad, to increase English proficiency within the aviation field.

Miscommunication between airline pilots and air traffic controllers who do not share the same native language can, and have, caused fatal accidents that could have been prevented. This is why the International Civil Aviation Organization, the agency responsible for international air travel safety and development, issued new recommendations to improve English-language training.

Now, all pilots flying internationally, and all air traffic controllers providing services to international flights, must have a minimum level of spoken Aviation English skills known as "Operational Level 4."To help students meet and surpass the ICAO requirements, Pam Am will integrate Carnegie Speech's "NativeAccent" technology and "Climb Level 4 Aviation English" software with their programs, creating an end-to-end English training solution.

Carnegie Speech offers spoken language training software. Carnegie Speech products are used by Business, Aviation, government, Education and Health Care enterprises that depend on effective spoken language communications. Carnegie Speech is based in Pittsburgh, PA.
