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.

This part takes approximately 15 minutes and is administered before the simulator session in the briefing room.

This is done as part of the simulator session.
