EASA Regulations require commercial pilots to have entered the level und validity of the language proficiency in their license. The English Language Proficiency Test can provide a revalidation efficiently during a regular simulator session (Training or LPC/OPC). Our FOCA/CAA approved Language Assessors can revalidate up to Level 4.


Language Proficiency Tests are done according established guidelines from the BAZL/FOCA and are fully ICAO compliant. Please check with your Civil Aviation Authority CAA whether such test is approved.

  • Part 1: Speaking Ability
    This part takes approximately 15 minutes and is administered before the simulator session in the briefing room.
  • Part 2: Listening & Comprehension
    This is done as part of the simulator session.
