We are a certified LTO (language testing organisation).

After successfully completing the exam, you will have valid proof of your language skills. The language endorsement for your license will be requested from the LBA or the relevant regional authority.

  • You require English proficiency for international aviation and commercial activity (e.g. as a flight instructor in accordance with § 3 LuftBO – German regulations for working with aviation equipment).
  • German proficiency is adequate for aviation and radio communications in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and South Tyrol.

Exam content
