Latvia Flight School Announces Improvement of Payment Structure
airBaltic Pilot Academy announces that it has improved the payment structure for its commercial pilot study program. As of now, after successfully passing company’s assessment, airBaltic will finance a significant part of the studies.
Pauls Cālītis, airBaltic Chief Operations Officer: “The relatively high cost of studies was a significant obstacle for aspiring young students to join the airBaltic Pilot Academy to become future airline pilots. This new system demonstrates airBaltic’s commitment to Pilot Academy and will enable more students to reach their dream of becoming a pilot.”
Students of the airBaltic Pilot Academy will now have to cover the costs of studies until obtaining a private pilot licence level, costing approximately EUR 15 000. After passing airBaltic pilot assessment and becoming an employee of the company, the airline will provide financing for the rest of the studies.
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.
