BAA Training Expands Its Ab Initio School

Adds Flight Base In Spain And Grows Training Infrastructure

BAA Training, one of the three biggest independent aviation training centers in Europe, is expanding its Ab Initio flight school. Currently operating in Lithuania and Spain, the Academy has opened a new flight base in Spain, and is expanding 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 enrolled in 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 the 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, SmartLynx. In addition, pilot assessment for cadet program with LOT Polish Airlines has been started. Therefore, with the continuingly growing student number BAA Training announces adding the second flight base in Spain - Castellón Airport.

Along with the infrastructure expansion, BAA Training is now supplementing its fleet with additional aircraft. With an investment of up to 6 million euros ($6.65 million), BAA Training is set to expand its Ab Initio fleet by more than 70% in 2020 and invest an additional 10 million euros ($11 million) in 2021.

"The talks about pilot shortage are far gone being just talks. Cooperating with major airlines on the market and sharing experience, we evidence the growing need not only for pilots but for training capacity as well. Adding one more flight base in south not only allows us to deliver year-round training to our current students, but to expand our capabilities to meet the growing market needs for pilot training," said Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at BAA Training.
