||Chung, Yongbum & Chung, Hyejin. (2015). A Study of English for Specific Purposes through Needs Analysis of International Pilots Language Proficiency. The Linguistics Association of Korea Journal, 23(2), 71-95. This study is to propose directions for more practical aviation English education for flight crew in order to help Korean international pilots improve their skills to communicate with air traffic control centers smoothly with a focus on the analysis of learners' needs. For that purpose, the study analyzed pilots' needs to improve their skills in English for a specific purpose, which is essential to flight operation among international pilots. The analysis results that pilots basically did not have a high level of knowledge or understanding in the area of language education system.
