About Me

Hello! I'm Nikki. Originally from the UK, I moved to Spain in 2002, a decision that marked a significant new phase in my career. In Spain, I founded a language school and, over time, developed a specialisation in aviation after starting to work with my local flight school in Jerez, a role I balanced alongside managing my own language school. This led to the establishment of Plane and Simple English. My business is committed to helping pilots and air traffic controllers in passing their ICAO ELP exams, handling the interview procedures for flight schools and cadet programs, and improving their English communication abilities within the aviation industry.
