Lithuania-based BAA Training estimates more than 650 future pilots will enrol on its ab initio airline pilot training programmes by the end of 2021.
Recently, BAA Training has launched new cadet partnership agreements with five airlines: Wizz Air, Lao Skyway, Small Planet Airlines, SmartLynx Airlines and Vietnam Airlines. The list of partners is expected to extend to at least three more as contracts are about to-be-signed.
“To respond to the increasing demand and growing capacities, we have started delivering practical training at two more locations in Lithuania,” said Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of BAA Training.
“In addition to S. Darius and S. Girenas aerodrome in Kaunas, we provide flight training at Istra and Kyviskes aerodromes located in Panevezys and Vilnius.”
“BAA Training has developed and implemented new standardisation, as well as training programmes for instructors, to assiss us in meeting the record-high training demand. Keeping high training standards is our top priority even during times like now, when the demand for flight training is at absolute peak.”
Despite the current record figures, the numbers are expected to rise even more.
Currently, BAA Training offers a total of eleven different ab initio training programmes, three of which are customised cadet programmes.
