While we are still under confinement measures, AVIAtest would like to emphasize that:
- as soon as we are allowed to resume working, we will provide all pilots and controllers with plenty of opportunities to obtain or renew their language proficiency rating. We will do the impossible to accommodate all requests.
- in the meantime, we encourage you to keep practicing English. Our partner https://www.aviation-english.be can help you if you need guidance and a sparing partner.
The status of the upcoming FCL.055 assessment sessions is available on our Booking page.

Following the decision of the Belgian Government to take the appropriate measures in the effort to limit the outbreak of the covid19 virus, AVIAtest has decided to postpone all scheduled sessions in order to participate in the global fight against the infection.
As soon as the authorities allow, customers will be contacted individually to arrange a new assessment appointment.
