Course Description

English language proficiency (ELP)

Aviation ELP is a measure of someone’s ability to communicate in English using an aviation-relevant assessment process.
People who use aeronautical radios need to be able to communicate effectively in voice only (for radio), as well as in face-to-face situations like pre-flight briefings, training and interacting with other crew members. From a safety perspective, this communication needs to be in the language that is used locally by pilots and air traffic service providers.
Standards for language proficiency were established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in 2008 and applied to flight crew licensing in Australia the same year.
If you hold an aviation ELP, you do not need to obtain a General English Language Proficiency (GELP) assessment.
An aviation ELP assessment involves a candidate being tested on their ability to communicate in English in the aviation environment, where safety is paramount. The assessment involves two-way communications between the assessor and the candidate, and covers:
  • pronunciation
  • grammatical structures and sentence patterns
  • vocabulary
  • fluency
  • comprehension
  • interactions while communicating.
Once you have been tested, your assessor will submit a report to CASA and your flight crew licensing records will be updated. Your ELP assessment record will be printed in the Conditions/Licence Remarks section of your flight crew licence document.

To get an aviation ELP assessment you can apply directly to FLIGHT AVIATION ACADEMY.
