BAA Training, located in Lithuania, has signed an ab initio Cadet Training partnership agreement with BayViet Aviation Academy, a subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines. According to the recently inked contract, a group of Cadets will be traveling to Lithuania as early as spring of 2016 for flight training.
“We have a well-defined aim to provide the Vietnam carriers with skilled and well prepared pilots, and the EASA pilot license is well known in the aviation world as a reliable option for expertise in young pilots. This has made us turn toward EASA as a preferred training standard and look for strong and reliable EASA approved partners,” explained CEO of BayViet Capt. Nguyen Nam Lien.
The long-term contract between two aviation academies already has a group of Vietnamese students working towards their EASA licenses, which is planned to graduate in the third quarter of 2017.
