For anyone attending the Flying Show in Birmingham this weekend


The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will be offering GA pilots attending this weekend’s Flying Show at the Birmingham NEC a free language proficiency check with a Flight Examiner. The pilot could then receive a Level 6 non-expiring endorsement on their Licence which they will need when applying for a new EASA Licence such as an EASA PPL or the Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) or a radio licence (FRTOL) renewal.

In 2008, all UK pilots who held a radio licence were deemed by the CAA to be at ‘Level 4’ in the English language. This followed a global agreement requiring that pilots demonstrate proficiency in English. A Level 4 endorsement, however, is only valid for four years so the endorsements granted in 2008 to UK pilots who held radio licences expired in March 2012 - unless they were renewed or were upgraded in the meantime.

The CAA said any pilots seeking an endorsement at the Flying Show should bring photo ID, such as a passport or driving licence, as well as a photocopy of the ID for endorsement. Pilots should also have their pilot licences and radio licences with them.

The examiner will be on the Airspace & Safety Initiative stand (23-24) at the Flying Show, at the NEC on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December 2012.
