Welcome to the Professional Aviation Board of Certification

                                                             Welcome to the PABC website
                                                                         the birthplace of
                                                      Global Professional Pilot Certification

PABC is an independent, international non-profit organization that enhances aviation safety by testing the pre-employment knowledge of pilots seeking to enter this profession. 

Aviation insurers encourage the air transport industry to adopt PABC's Gobal Professional Pilot Certification (GPPC) exam as a way to identify any gaps in a pilot's knowledge that will degrade his/her performance during Initial New Hire (INH) and type-rating training.

PABC will define globally accepted knowledge standards for pre-employment pilot training and conduct GPPC testing (certification) of pilots against those standards, but will not conduct pre-employment pilot training.
