Brazilian Pilots need to retake their English tests

post2

Brazilian Pilots need to retake their English tests.

News circulated in the media this week that some Brazilian pilots (the exact number varies between 37 and 95) will need to redo their English proficiency tests. These pilots went to Madrid to do the test, after this test center was approved in December 2011 by ANAC to apply the test for Brazilians.

ANAC went to do an inspection of the test center in June 2012 and decided that the test was not of a high enough standard and therefore have required the pilots who did their test there to retake the test in Brazil.

GOL pilots in demand

GOL

GOL recently dismissed many pilots from the company. This came as a suprise since until recently people in Brazil were reporting about the shortage of pilots in Brazil. The lawmakers came close to changing the country's law to allow foreign pilots to fly in Brazilian companies. 

The large Brazilian aviation community website www.tripulacao.com.br reported that other countries are working to recruit these pilots from GOL Airlines. See the report: Report. Pilots could earn up to R$25 000 a month, which is far more than they receive in Brazil, and have the benefit of have 15 off days per month, which is also a lot more than they receive in Brazil. One of the companies mentioned was Ethiopian Airlines. This seems to be an excellent opportunity for those pilots who feel undervalued by Brazilian airline companies.

For pilots to be able to fly in this foreign countries a good level of English is essential. For more information on improving your English level, and preparing for interviews in English contact us at: info@globalaviationenglish.com. We provide high quality classes with native English speaking teachers, with Aviation experience.
