Aviation English Asia Ltd courses are MATF Reimbursable

If you are an airline, or airport employee based in Hong Kong - you could benefit from the government's Maritime and Aviation Training Fund, which allows candidates to reimburse 80% of course fees up to a maximum limit of $18,000 HKD.

This means that whatever your role, the fund supports mobility between occupations so you may be eligible for our ICAO Aviation English courses, even if you are not currently in that role.  However the time available for the fund is limited, so don't delay.  It is always better to start training with AEA as soon as possible.  For more details, just call us on +852 81799295 and we can advise you on your eligibility.

Professionalism in aviation
Professionalism in aviation is more than pass and fail

A high standard of English is a matter of professionalism in airline pilots, yet many candidates applying for an airline's cadet programme neglect English until they fail a test.  The question is, why do so many candidates leave it until the last minute.  

Learning English for aviation is not about pass or fail in a test

English is just a language, like Cantonese, Portuguese and Spanish.  We all have strengths and weaknesses and it's acceptable to have a weakness in using English.  One of the difficulties is that an ICAO test just gives you scores from 1-6 in various categories.  It doesn't tell a candidate much about what they can and can't do.  That's one of the reasons why the Aviation English Organisation developed the AEROSTA Framework as an enhanced proficiency testing system for the aviation community.  

When a learner disregards their scores, and instead focuses on skills they realise they need to develop, they are in turn developing themselves as professionals.

Aviation English Asia Ltd courses have a sensible and realistic class length

Aviation English Asia classes have a sensible, and realistic class length that is proven to help learners achieve their goal.  Our classes are designed to be frequent and often, so you get plenty of practice and your level doesn't drop between classes.  Of course, for learners who are at a very high level already this doesn't matter so much, but for most learners in Hong Kong class length is a very important factor. 

Realistically, most learners between ICAO level 3 and ICAO level 5 are not going to benefit much after 2 hours.  We have found that 90-120 minutes is the optimum time for learning efficiency, especially if you have a day job.

Some of our students who are airline pilots actually attend very intensive courses during daytime, studying up to 6 hours per day.  But their needs are different and we frequently change the type of activities so they don't get too tired.
