News and Press releases

News and press releases, media information and contact details.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, please take note of the following arrangements.

English courses for aviation professionals 

Face-to-face classes for commercial pilots / ATCOs are still being conducted in our Learning Centres albeit with restrictions on numbers following the HKSAR government guidelines.  Airline staff are inherently higher risk than other students therefore we encourage attending our online classes where possible. Online support will be provided to airline students wherever feasible.

Courses for aviation professionals eg ICAO Aviation English for Commercial Pilots / ATCOs, English for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers and Technicians and English for Airport staff will continue but online classes are recommended where possible.

AEROSTAF testing for airline clients will continue on an appointment basis.

English for general and academic purposes

We understand that airline staff have experienced massive disruption to their careers in 2020.  Airline / airport staff considering a career change or further academic study may consider our IELTS course.  Aviation English Asia Ltd teachers have delivered this course since 2006 mostly for learners attending flight training overseas, but other learners have attended this course for specific language practice. These classes can be scheduled online or face to face depending on HKSAR government restrictions.

English courses for aviation pre-professionals

In view of trends in airline recruitment classes for Cadet Entry Pilots will be suspended until further notice.  We hope to resume the Basic Aeronautical Knowledge Certificate Programme in small numbers after Lunar New Year 2021, which will be supplemented with relevant English language training to prepare candidates for flight training. Opportunities for flight training will be provided only when the pandemic subsides.

Train to become an accredited Aviation English Teacher / Rater

Aviation English Teacher and Aviation English Rater courses will hopefully continue after Lunar New Year.  Please note HKSAR quarantine requirements if you are attending in Hong Kong.  Unfortunately video conferencing technology is not yet adequate to facilitate the practical modules of the courses.  Therefore it will take longer for candidates to achieve the standards required for the Aviation English Organisation license.

Student health

Students should not attend classes if they develop fever or any respiratory symptoms.

As health and safety of the aviation community is paramount, students are required to wear a mask, conduct a temperature check and maintain good personal hygiene and proper social distancing. Class size will be limited to meet HKSAR government requirements.

Those who fail to comply with the stated Hygiene Requirements will not be allowed to attend in-person class / examination.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation in this matter.
