Assessments in Different Languages

Besides the aviation English language, we are authorized to perform Slovak language assessments and ICAO language proficiency in Slovak language.

In the age of globalization, aviation language proficiency exams in languages other than English language as well as possibility to transfer flight crew license between EASA member states are especially important. Among the few in Europe, we offer language proficiency exams in languages different than English.

Different ICAO languages

One of the exclusive service we - in Aero Language - provide is ICAO exam of pilots in languages different than English.

Aviation English and ICAO English is the most commonly used ICAO international aviation language. However, it is not the only ICAO language - Russian, French, and many more are also ICAO languages.

Aviation language proficiency exams in languages other than Aviation English are required especially for official languages of the biggest European countries:

  • German
  • French
  • Russian
  • Italian
  • Spanish

There are several reasons for pilots to take language proficiency exam in language other than English.

One of the reasons is a license transfer from one country to another where languages differ.

For example: A Hungarian candidate has undergone the flight training in the flight school and received the license in Austria and wants to transfer it to Ireland (ie due to job in airline).

We intentionally present the an example of Ireland since many airlines require a transfer of license to a country which oversees the airline's operations eg. Ryanair - Ireland.

Hungarian speaking pilot has received Austrocontrol-issued flight crew license, they have no knowledge of german language, and the Austrocontrol does not examine language proficiency in Hungarian language. Therefore, the flight crew license contains only information on ICAO English language proficiency.

During the license transfer, however, there might be a requirement to have a license entry for Slovak language proficiency as well.

In these cases, Aero Language can provide assistance and arrange language proficiency examination of pilots in languages different than English language.
