The CAE Oxford English Test for Aviation (CETA) is a high quality language test for private, commercial and airline transport pilots. Developed by CAE Oxford Aviation Academy, the CETA provides both trainee and licensed pilots with an innovative and highly effective means of determining English language proficiency for international radiotelephony communications.

    The CETA measures proficiency in plain English, covering listening comprehension and speaking, according to the ICAO rating scale.


    CAE Oxford Aviation Academy is an approved testing centre for ICAO Aviation English Language Ratings and has the ability to award all ICAO rating levels up to and including Level 6.

    Furthermore, CAE Oxford Aviation Academy is one of only three Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) based in the UK which is approved by the UK CAA to carry out English Language Testing to meet UK CAA requirements for the issuing of EASA Pilot Licences.
