The EALTS

The English for Aviation Language Testing System (EALTS) is a multi-level, English for Aviation language testing system designed to assess the language proficiency of commercial flight crew, recreational pilots and air traffic controllers for ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements compliance.

Additionally, the UK CAA approves and certificates LTAS as complying in full with the JAR-FCL 1.010 requirements (EASA Part-FCL) relating to the establishment of a Language Assessment Body. LTAS is empowered by UK CAA and other ICAO Member States to operate in the capacity of assessor of Aviation English Language Proficiency.
