English Language Proficiency for pilots

This notification provides clarification to licence holders about the English Language Proficiency assessment process.

Flight Radiotelephony Operator’s Licence (FRTOL) holders who have not converted to Part-FCL, new FRTOL applicants, those holding level 4 or 5 Language Proficiency should be aware that they must hold a valid Language Proficiency validation to operate such equipment. If you have any questions about your status please contact your training provider.

Please note that absence of a valid language proficiency assessment invalidates an FRTOL and will delay any subsequent licence request.
