On the 4th of August, Baltic Aviation Academy’s students have started Ab Initio flight training abroad. It is conducted as a part of Airline Transport License Program of Instrumental Flights training. The video footage from flight you can find here:

During the flights trainings pilot-in-command under supervision of instructor are piloting Cessna 172S LY-BAK. The first route has started from Aleksotas aerodrome in Kaunas (Lithuania) to Kuressaare (Estonia) and the way back.

‘Conducting flights outside the borders of Lithuania puts student in a situation that professional pilots are facing everyday: radio communication with foreigner air traffic controllers, knowledge of air laws, flight planning and so on. It is the next-to-last training of our ‘almost’ graduates who after intensive exams at CAA are steadily approaching their dream’, commented Indre Sveistryte, Head of Flight Training Organization at Baltic Aviation Academy.

The objective of the Modular Instrument Rating (IR(A)) modular flight training course is to train pilots to the level of proficiency necessary to operate airplanes under the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) and in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC).
