It is not an aviation knowledge test

Don't be afraid of saying something 'aeronautically' wrong

Don't stop talking

Even if you don't know what to answer, let our raters know that you understood the question and that you're thinking about the answer.

It is not an R/T exam

Keep in mind: we do not check your radio phraseology or R/T skills. This is about plain English.

Expect the unexpected

At one point, a test question may throw you out of your comfort zone. Don't panic!

If there are Misunderstandings

The language test also aims at checking your ability to clarify and resolve misunderstandings.

Ask questions

There's a difference between just hitting 'say again' and asking a question. For a higher level, you should be able to do both.

Say again

The language test allows you to repeat questions up to 3 times.

Unlimited number of tries

Whatever happens: there is no maximum number of times that you can repeat the test.

Nothing that you can't do now

Being here for the test means that you currently don't have an LP. If you fail, you still won't have one. So don't be afraid of the test!
