BAA Training opens training base in the Middle East

BAA Training has opened a training base in Sharjah, UAE which offers Type Rating, Cabin Crew training and FFS services.

In cooperation with Pier 7 Aviation, BAA Training UAE is equipped to provide Type Rating and Cabin Crew training, full flight simulator dry or wet lease services. The new location of Boeing 737 CL and Airbus A320 full flight simulators complements 26 existing BAA Training’s locations.

Throughout the past year, BAA Training focused on business development in Asia and Asia-Pacific as the aviation personnel shortage in the regions is continuing to rise.

The academy has also acquired approvals for pilot training from Laotian, Malaysian, Nepalese, and Seychelles authorities. According to aircraft manufacturers, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East are the fastest growing domestic aviation markets globally.

“This is an exciting and encouraging development for BAA Training as well as our partners. [It is] the ideal location at the junction between Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia,” said Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of BAA Training.
