If you use an aeronautical radio, you will need to meet general English language proficiency (GELP).
The GELP assesses your everyday use of English. It's aimed at people who are either just starting their flying training or want to be able to use aviation air-band radios.
It doesn't test your knowledge of aviation terminology and can only be used to apply for certain licences and certificates. For example, a recreational pilot licence (RPL) without a flight radio endorsement and aeronautical radio operator certificate (AROC).
If you want to test your aviation terminology you will need an aviation English language proficiency (AELP).
Who needs a GELP assessment
You may need a GELP assessment for:
- recreational pilot licence holders (RPL) who don't have a ‘flight radio endorsement’
- remote pilot licence holders (RePL)
- an aeronautical radio operator certificate (AROC)
Below is a list of what you need to get an assessment.
