Aviation training centre Baltic Aviation Academy continues its rapid expansion and enters another aviation training market by being approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Philippines (CAAP).
According to the certificate, Baltic Aviation Academy complies with the requirements of the Philippine Civil Aviation Regulations and Implementing Standards Part 3 to provide the following type rating training courses: Airbus A319/A320/321, Airbus A330, Airbus A340, ATR 42/72/432-320/72-500, Boeing B 737-300-900W, Boeing B 747-400, Boeing B 777-200ER, DHC8 – 400.
Philippines islands are greatly spread out creating a huge demand for air travel. Country’s fleet is mainly focused on the Airbus family aircraft as these types of aircraft compiles up to 70% of all Philippine fleet. Moreover, according to CAPA, the expansion of the fleet is predicted to grow continuously, as more than 100 aircraft are on order at the moment.
‘Aviation sector in Philippines is constantly expanding and very promising. With the expected fleet expansion and the European training standards being implemented, it is a perfect opportunity for Baltic Aviation Academy to become a part of this growing aviation market. CAAP approval is another affirmation that there is an increasing need for high standard aviation training in Asia Pasific, and that we are capable and ready to provide it’, commented Egle Vaitkeviciute the CEO at Baltic Aviation Academy.
