Martin Gauss, President and CEO of airBaltic, commented: “Highly-trained personnel is one of the key factors in the successful operations of any airline. Since its establishment, the airBaltic Pilot Academy has educated skilled aviation professionals, with over 120 active students currently pursuing their dreams here. Therefore, we congratulate the young and determined students of the 21st group, who began their studies today to become professional pilots.”

There are 123 active students at the airBaltic Pilot Academy at the moment. Most of them are from Baltic countries, however, there are students also from other EU countries such as Finland, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain among others.
