BAA Training, a European training centre headquartered in Lithuania, will begin training pilots on its Wizz Air Cadet Programme in October.
The five-year training agreement with the low-cost European airline will involve up to 150 cadets. The courses will be delivered under EASA regulations for the commercial licence.
“We are looking for passionate and devoted young people who have little or no previous flying experience and are dreaming of a “workplace in the sky”. Our main value is people; therefore, we are delighted to offer the opportunity to the new generation to join our already high standard professional team operating the youngest fleet in Europe with aircraft of the Airbus A320 and A321 family” said Captain Attila Tovari, Head of Training Wizz Air ATO and Pilot Recruitment Team Leader.
Students of the cadet programme will be given a conditional employment contract, dependent on successful completion of training. “Undoubtedly, having a guarantee of a job offer is significant to every future pilot, ensuring the possibility of employment in case the program is completed successfully,“ comments Indre Sveistryte, Ab Initio Director at BAA Training.
The trainer is holding an open day on 24 September for people to attend and find out more about the Wizz Air Cadet Programme.
