Revalidation or Renewal of an ELP Endorsement


The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has established English Language Proficiency (ELP) requirements for all aviation professionals who are required to communicate in English, including flight crew members who operate internationally and in Seychelles airspace. Flight crew members operating in Seychelles airspace are required to maintain a valid ELP endorsement on their license by applying with the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) to renew or revalidate it. Effective communication in English is essential in aviation, as it ensures that all parties involved in a flight operation understand each other clearly and can communicate important information in a timely and accurate manner. The ELP requirements are critical to ensuring safety in aviation, as miscommunication or a lack of communication can lead to errors, incidents, and accidents. By maintaining a valid ELP endorsement on their license, flight crew members can ensure that they meet the language proficiency requirements set by the ICAO and that they are able to effectively communicate in English while operating in Seychelles airspace or flying internationally. This helps to ensure the safety and efficiency of flight operations, which is essential for the aviation industry as a whole. Please see below steps to follow to request for the revalidation or renewal of an English Language Proficiency Endorsement.
