In our country all pilots are fully trained in English. They all speak it very well (although some of them do have a terrible accent) since they had all their training in the US. But in exercises, when for example American units are the opposite side, they will communicate in Dutch to not give away any information.

Yes I would imagine any NATO country must be able to operate in English for joint operations.  I would also image they would communicate in the native language on intra-flight just for quicker and more effective communication.

Fellas, let's not forget, virtual squadrons are manned (mostly) by civilians. Thus, we should expect local squadrons using native language a lot. Of course when members from abroad join-in, it would be all the more logical trying to communicate in English for example. NATO forces always communicate in English (not always successfully - trust me), be it Air Force, Navy, or the Army during joint exercises. Take it from a guy who's participated on the Gulf crisis, the Adriatic, and countless STANAVFORMED missions..  :whocares:

@Snoopy, your ICAO must be 6.
it is the document that attests to an aviator's proficiency in English, that is, his ability to communicate and understand the language.

Following ICAO guidelines, evaluating English within the universe of civil aviation. This includes the pilot's routine, unforeseen events and emergencies. Skills assessed are pronunciation, grammatical structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interactions.
Test:
 Aviation Topics
 Candidates answer questions related to their experience and the daily life of aviation in general. This initial part aims to “break the ice”, while the answers are evaluated. Each answer should last approximately one minute.
Interacting as a Pilot
Now the candidate is the pilot, interacting with traffic control in five different situations. All information understood must be reported to the examiner, always using aviation phraseology. Here, the aim is to assess the ability to understand and interact in English.
Unexpected Situations
Three emergency situations are presented, through recordings of dialogues between a pilot and a controller. The candidate must report everything he/she was able to understand and answer questions about each situation. In the end, he should indicate what was the most difficult situation to deal with and point out possible solutions or ways to prevent the problem. This step assesses language comprehension in real emergency situations.
 Picture Description and Discussion
In the last part of the exam, the candidate must describe a photo and answer questions related to the image. Statements are presented and the respondent must say how much they agree or disagree with them, always justifying their opinion.

I know that when I got my Private Pilot's license I was taught that the FAA standard for ALL air operations was the English language.  I know this isn't strictly adhered to in ALL locations (try flying into Quebec and not speaking French, forex...) but supposedly it's the FAA "standard" by Regulation.
