Approved by the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Alpha Aviation Academy is certified to assess candidates on English Language Proficiency tests to attain levels 4, 5, or 6 based on their degree of qualification and competence. Upon the successful completion of the assessments, Alpha grants GCAA-approved English Language Proficiency certificates for pilots and air traffic controllers.  


The assessments are in line with the UAE GCAA prerequisites and meet the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)’s implementation standards and requirements, as outlined in ICAO Doc 9835. The ELP’s benefits lie in facilitating language barriers between pilots and reducing the risk of a human factor; complications can cause a miscommunication which results in deleterious consequences on the overall flight safety. An ELP license will aid pilots in taking the correct decisions in critical situations during the flight.


Captain Nadhem AlHamad, general manager, Alpha Aviation Academy UAE, said: “We are very thrilled about the launch of our latest product; the ELP assessments. During such challenging times, it is crucial for businesses in the aviation training industry to re-examine the market and re-evaluate both its positioning and offering. With that in mind, Alpha Aviation Academy UAE is very eager to meet our prospective customers and instill in them the critical skills that are a necessity in the Aviation training industry.”
