The eighth group of students began their study process at the Latvian airline’s airBaltic Pilot Academy today, on September 21, 2020. The eighth group of 11 students will receive a commercial pilot licence upon completion of the full-time program in less than two years from now.

Pauls Cālītis, COO of airBaltic: “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.”

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.
