31/1/2008Antwerp, Belgium, January 31, 2008 – Aerosolutions has won the approval of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DGCAM) of Oman to offer Aviation English training and testing that meets the new ICAO standard for minimum English proficiency for all international flight crews.
"This is a momentous occasion for our team. We are pleased to expand our services to meet the needs of our valued customers within the Sultanate of Oman. We thank the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology in Oman, for granting us approval of our ELP Test and our Aviation English training courses,” stated Leona Van Auwenis, Aerosolutions’ Language Training Center Director.
“By March 2008, all pilots and air traffic controllers who fly internationally, or work international flights, must demonstrate ICAO level 4 (Operational) language proficiency as a licensing requirement. This requirement applies to both native and non-native speakers of English,” said Joëlle Haerens, Director Marketing and Sales. “Aerosolutions has worked with the DGCAM in the development and implementation of our ELP Test and we are proud to have met their standards and specifications for the Approval status." This testing solution works very nicely with the Aerosolutions Aviation English training solution should a pilot or air traffic controller test below the required Level 4 standard.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DGCAM) was established in 1975 by the Omani government in order to manage all matters pertaining to civil aviation and meteorology, including the management of Oman's two international airports of Seeb and Salalah. In addition it operates and maintains two smaller domestic airports at Diba and Sur.
