BAA Training, one of the biggest independent aviation training centres in Europe, is expanding its Ab Initio flight school capacity by investing over €1.2 million into new learning material and equipment.
Recently, the Academy has purchased 4 new aircraft, two Cessna 172 and two Tecnam T2002, which are expected to join the fleet currently consisting of 2 Cessna 172, 2 Tecnam P2006T and 9 Tecnam P2002JF aircraft. The brand new four aircraft are due to be delivered to BAA Training and arrive in Vilnius by the middle of July.
Last year BAA Training used 8,000 hours for training students in the aircraft and the Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer. Meanwhile this year the training centre aims to utilize 18,000 hours, more than doubling the number of the previous year. Depending on the calculations, the new aircraft will add nearly 6,000 more hours per year. Therefore, the fleet expansion is a fundamental step in order to maintain the growing demand for BAA Training Cadet programs with Wizz Air, SmartLynx, Small Planet Airlines and Avion Express.
In addition to the fleet expansion, this June BAA Training has also invested into obtaining new learning materials for ATPL training – Padpilot. The new training tool is expected to help deliver theoretical training smoother and in a more student-friendly way.
To ensure all-year-round training for its students, BAA Training is going to start delivering flight training at a new flight base in Lleida-Alguaire International Airport in Spain already this October.Email Post to a Friend
