Who are we?
AEPS (Aviation English Private School) SPRL is an English-teaching and -evaluation centre for aircraft pilots.
At the end of 2010, at the request of some pilot friends, Olivier Thaon put together a team of professional educators and started to organise English-teaching modules dedicated to aviation, aiming to give candidates for the FCL.055/ELP language-competence test the best possible preparation.
It has been a success and he plans, in the very near future, to create a division bringing together various aviation-related services.
At the end of 2011, in response to numerous suggestions and to offer his customers a complete service, Olivier Thaon decided to take steps to become registered with the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority (DGTA) as a TSP-ELP operator.
In spring 2012, Juliette Bodson conducted a thorough review of the education modules to make them more effective and consistent with the ELP examination under preparation. Since 1 November 2012, AEPS has officially been the first English-training centre for pilots in Belgium and has been a registered TSP-ELP operator.
In August 2013, the French Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) came into line with EASA recommendations. That enabled AEPS to offer FCL.055 VFR/IFR tests to pilots with French licences.
In 2014, entered the professional aviation market with the goal for 2015 of becoming the European leader in FCL.055/ELP training and certification!
