BAA Training, European standard aviation training centre, has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with Pan Am International Flight Training Centre (Thailand) for Airbus A320 FFSs utilization in Thailand.

„The role of a training centre is significant when pilots’ demand grows at phenomenal rates. Opening up a new location undoubtedly supports our business firmly. Enlarging geographical presence helps satisfying existing and ever increasing dry as well as wet lease needs of our current clients, for whom other geographically more distant locations are less convenient for a short period training ,“ comments Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of BAA Training.

International Air Transport Association (IATA) predicts that Asia-Pacific will be the most powerful driver for passengers’ growth with an extra 1.8 billion annual travellers by 2035. According to the aircraft manufacturer Airbus, Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region that is forecasted to meet 14 275 new aircraft deliveries, compiling 41% of the overall demand. This corresponds to 219,890 new pilots needed for the region.

Being a market leader, Asian region naturally dictates the tendencies for training facilities, therefore, to fulfil the growing demand, BAA Training now offers dry and wet lease of Airbus A320 FFS on Pan Am International Flight Training Centre’s (Thailand) premises in Bangkok, Thailand.

„This partnership with BAA Training enables us to support more clients outside the local market field, as well as to provide them with more convenient and user-friendly training environment. We believe that all parties including the end-user will enjoy this win-win opportunity,“ notes Hideaki Mifune, Director and CFO at Pan Am International Centre (Thailand).

BAA Training is able to provide training solutions for 18 types of aircraft on 55 FFSs located in 32 training spots across Europe, North and South Americas, Africa and Asia. BAA Training is also a member of Avia Solutions Group family – an international, publicly traded aviation holding company with over 20 subsidiaries worldwide.
