About the ELP Test
English Language Proficiency Test for Aviation
The English Language Proficiency Test (ELP Test) has been developed by Aerosolutions to assess Pilots and Controllers for licensing purposes. It was specifically designed to comply with the principles and guidelines embodied in the Manual on the Implementation of language proficiency requirements by ICAO.

The ELP Test, which is used to assess speaking and listening proficiency in both ICAO radio phraseology and plain English, evaluates language proficiency in the six proficiency criteria (for the six ICAO levels):

  • Pronunciation
  • Structure
  • Vocabulary
  • Fluency
  • Comprehension
  • Interactions


The 60-minute listening and speaking test is computer-delivered to allow for easy and uniform administration and for maximum authenticity.

The listening section is computer adaptive and measures the examinee’s ability to understand English. This section consists of a number of traditional multiple-choice questions with four answer choices.

The speaking section assesses how effectively candidates can communicate in English and measures the examinee’s ability to respond to different aviation related situations and tasks. The speaking test is recorded and takes 30-40 minutes.

Rating and reporting processes are controlled by accredited Aerosolutions personnel to maintain test security and quality. Once the ELP Test is completed, candidates receive individual reports outlining their result on each of ICAO’s six proficiency criteria and obtain an overall score.

Aerosolutions' ELP Test has received approval in several countries to assess English language proficiency at all levels for flight crew and air traffic controllers.
