Our Aviation English Placement Test (AEP Test) is a comprehensive testing system that helps place candidates into appropriate Aviation English courses and maximizes their chances for success.

The English Language Proficiency Test for Aviation (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.
