The 8th cohort of students start at airBaltic's pilot academy.

This week saw the 8th group of students began their studies at the pilot academy of the Latvian airline airBaltic.  

This group of  11 students will receive a commercial pilot licence upon completion of the full-time programme in less than two years from now.  Overall, there are now 60 active students at airBaltic Pilot Academy. Most of the students are from Baltic countries, however, there are students also from other EU countries such as Germany, France, Finland among others. More than 10% of airBaltic Pilot Academy students are female.

Pauls Cālītis, airBaltic said: “We launched our Pilot Academy almost three years ago. Since then, we have worked with over 72 students and built a fleet of eight state-of-the-art training aircraft at our base in Liepaja. This is the first group that has started studies since the Covid-19 crisis began. We believe that, once they will graduate the demand for air travel and new pilots will have returned.”
