Language Proficiency Test - ELPAC

Belgocontrol is officially recognised as the examination centre for the organisation of the language proficiency test intended for operational air traffic controllers.

Belgocontrol uses the ELPAC test (English Language Proficiency for Aeronautical Communication) developed by Eurocontrol to assess the English language proficiency of air traffic controllers.

The ELPAC test meets ICAO language requirements of level 4 (operational) and 5 (extended) and the criteria for knowledge of the English language set by the Directive 2006/23/EC on a community air traffic controller licence.
