On September 14, 6 students graduated from the Latvian airline’s airBaltic Pilot Academy, receiving a commercial pilot license upon completion of the full-time airline transport pilot program. In addition, already the 10th group of 13 students began their professional pilot studies.
Pauls Cālītis, airBaltic Chief Operations Officer: “We are proud that the third group of students has already graduated from the airBaltic Pilot Academy and will be able to continue their chosen career very soon. We are also pleased with the young and determined, already the 10th group of students who started their studies today. These events reveal that the pilot profession and the studies at our Pilot Academy have high demand, and we are also delighted to see women not only among students, but also between graduates.”
Overall, there are now 90 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, Spain and Italy among others. More than 10% of airBaltic Pilot Academy students are female.
