BAA Training, one of the top-three biggest independent aviation training centers in Europe, has announced it is expanding its Ab Initio flight school. Currently operating in Lithuania and Spain, the academy adds one more flight base in Spain and expands its training infrastructure.
Providing Ab Initio training since 2009 and collaborating with major airlines for cadet training programs since 2016, BAA Training currently has over 310 students at its Ab Initio school. Last year, in addition to the headquarters flight base in Lithuania, the Academy opened its first flight base at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport in Spain. The expansion and development of the new flight base was executed in order to ensure year-round flight training.
In 2019 the company became a partner of Turkish Airlines for the cadet training programs supplementing already ongoing programs with such airlines as Wizz Air, Avion Express and SmartLynx. In addition, pilot assessment for the cadet program with LOT Polish Airlines has been started. Therefore, with the continually growing student number, BAA Training will add the second flight base in Spain – at Castellón Airport.
Along with the infrastructure expansion, BAA Training is now supplementing its fleet with additional aircraft. With up to €6 million (US$6.6 million) investment, BAA Training is set to expand its Ab Initio fleet by more than 70% in 2020 and invest additional €10 million (US$11 million) in 2021.Email Post to a Friend
