BAA Training is expanding its flight base network. BAA Training Ab Initio school, currently handling more than 200 students, and having three aerodromes to conduct flight training, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Lleida-Alguaire International Airport in Spain.

"An additional flight training base in the south is a well thought-out and strategical step of the BAA Training expansion," said Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO, BAA Training. "With the growing number of students and airline partners' pool trusting our professionalism to provide cadet training, the additional flight base is a natural step towards high-quality pilot training."

As the preparation for operations at Lleida-Alguaire Internatinal Airport is underway, BAA Training is set to run yearly flight operations starting from 1st October 2018. The establishment of this new base creates additional jobs. The company estimates they will need to fill up to 25 positions of instructor, mechanics and administration staff.
