ICAO Aviation English exams
ICAO Aviation English exams usually start at 1 pm and clients are scheduled in 60 minute blocks. We will inform you of your ICAO exam time in advance or it can be arranged with the flight school dispatch. In case you also plan to attend a Refresh course before the exam itself, it starts at 9 am and lasts 3 hours.
Every pilot of an aeroplane or a helicopter who holds an IR or flies VFR abroad, except Slovakia, is required to pass the language exam – ICAO English.
The exam is time-limited and the level of proficiency is assessed on a six-point scale of 0-6, where 0 is no proficiency and 6 corresponds to a native speaker. The minimum required proficiency level for a pilot is 4 (operational level).
The successful client will receive certificate which must be delivered to the LAA or CAA to have the language competency enlisted in the licence.
The exam assesses general English proficiency (pronounciation, vocabulary, fluency, interaction, comprehension) including grammar, proficiency in technical aviation English, ability to understand recordings and simulated communication between ATC and the pilot.
The exam takes approximately 25 - 35 minutes. We will tell you the result shortly after the exam.
We do not require a written test for the exam, only in case the client demonstrates knowledge between levels 4-5 and 5-6 after the oral exam.
If you fail, the exam can be retaken for 79 €, at the earliest in the next month to give you time to prepare.
Client must log in to the virtual classroom at least 5 minutes before given and agreed time and wait for the examiner's acceptance. The content of the examination is the same as in the face-to-face form of the exam.
Online exams take place on the same dates as face-to-face exams. We will inform you of your ICAO exam time in advance or it can be arranged with the flight school dispatch.
We will tell you the result shortly after the exam. If you pass, the electronically signed certificate will be sent to the email address provided.

The ICAO exam can be booked with a refresh-course that takes place before the exam (available only in classroom form). This 3-hour refresh-course will take you through the content of what you should already know. We'll help you to take the exam with ease.
The refresh-course is not compulsory, it's up to you whether you need it or not.
If none of the ICAO exam dates listed here are suitable for you, we can also arrange an exam on an individual date just for you. The exam is online. The price is 200 €.
If you hold a pilot licence issued by a foreign authority or will apply for a pilot licence issued by a foreign authority, it´s client´s responsibility to check with relevant CAA if the exam conducted in our flying school will be accepted and then give us the notice at least 5 calendar days before the exam. If the client fails to do so, he/she cannot be admitted to take the exam.
