ALBCONTROL hosted the ELPAC Annual Meeting (English Language Proficiency for Aeronautical Communication), on the 20th of April 2016.
Around twenty representatives from different countries, members of EUROCONTROL, representatives from ANSP or other international institutions in the field of air traffic attended the meeting in Tirana.
ELPAC is a test of English in aeronautical communication. It is designed for operational air traffic controllers and pilots and reflects the range of tasks undertaken in air traffic control and pilot communications. ELPAC was developed by EUROCONTROL, in partnership with ZHAW (the Zurich University of Applied Sciences) and ENOVATE. ELPAC is a test fully recognized by ICAO for being in conformance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices for Language Proficiency Requirements.
