BAA Training, one of the top-three biggest independent aviation training centers in Europe, will expand further into Spain. BAA Training has chosen the location and has started the establishment of a training center near Barcelona–El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport.

By establishing BAA Training Spain, the company is to open a 5300 m² modern training center with the brand-new training equipment, classrooms, briefing rooms and a luxury lounge. According to BAA Training representatives, BAA Training Spain is set to operate seven full-flight simulators by 2023, becoming the biggest training center in Southern Europe.

As the building reconstruction work is already underway, the first two full-flight simulators are already scheduled for 2020. Airbus’ A320ceo full-flight simulator is bound to be ready for training in August, while the second one, for the Boeing 737NG, is planned to start operation in September. With all seven simulators in operation, BAA Training Spain will be ready to accommodate the needs of the European market with more than 51 thousand flight training hours and provide recurrent pilot training for approximately 6,000 pilots, yearly.

Even though the training center will be equipped with full-flight simulators and flight-training devices suitable for pilot type rating qualification, pilot recurrent training and wet and dry FFS lease services, it also opens a possibility to provide the market with a full scope of pilot training in Spain
