BAA Training, European standard aviation training centre, has announced gaining an approval to provide ATR 42/72 FFS services for Tanzanian aviation companies. After successful audit by Tanzanian Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA), ATR 42/72 type rating training and full flight simulator dry or wet lease is allowed to be provided at the training center in Vienna, Austria.

Inspectors of TCAA audited the headquarters of BAA Training and ATR 42/72 full flight simulator in Austria. The infrastructure and network of instructors were tested to ensure the service alignment with aviation training standards. Representatives of the TCAA did not have any complaints regarding the detailed inspection.

“TCAA approval helps to support the further development of Tanzanian airlines and pilots by providing easier access to advanced aviation training. This will allow pilots to receive critical training in Europe with the network of highly trusted instructors, reliable and cost-effective training solutions. The wide network of services will enable customers and prospective pilots to take full advantage of the cooperation with BAA Training,” comments Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of BAA Training.

By expanding its geographical capabilities, BAA Training has been successfully working with African market for over 5 years now. With the recent TCAA’s approval, airlines will be able to save substantially in terms of both costs and time spent on pilots training. This in turn will enable air carriers to train their cabin crew far quicker as the need to wait for training slots at overbooked simulators is diminished.

The academy can already offer ATR 42/72 simulator services in 6 different countries located across 4 continents. Offering flexible and tailored solutions, BAA Training accumulated almost 1,000 hours on ATR 42/72 FFSs in 2016 alone. Additionally, the aviation academy provides training solutions for 18 types of aircraft on 54 FFSs located in 32 training spots across Europe, North and South Americas, Africa and Asia.
