On January 12, 2023, the MPL (Multi-Crew Pilot Licence) program of Bamboo Airways and BAA Training was officially approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), becoming the first and only program of such type in Vietnam.

BAA Training Vietnam – the leading pilot training center, and Bamboo Airways – the 5-star-oriented full-service carrier, have signed a 3-year cooperation agreement defining BAA Training Vietnam as the prestigious partner of Bamboo Airways for training initial cadets for the MPL program, the first of its kind in the Vietnamese aviation market.

The future Bamboo Airways pilots will complete the MPL program, fully approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) on January 12, 2023. Bamboo Airways has become the first and only airline in Vietnam to deliver an exceptional MPL program. Initially, the plan is to train approximately 100 student pilots within 3 years from 2023 to 2025.

Vytautas Jankauskas, CEO of BAA Training Vietnam, says: “Both BAA Training and Bamboo Airways share the same values. They ensure initial cadets get high-quality, comprehensive training complying with the industry regulatory requirements, where aviation safety practices play a fundamental role. Our collaboration with Bamboo Airways allows us to combine our efforts and introduce a new MPL training program following EASA’s rules and regulations. We expect to have a new generation of pilots to serve the airline industry in Vietnam.” “We especially appreciate Bamboo Airways’ transparency, willingness to take an innovative approach, and use of modern business management methods. The newly launched MPL program will allow us to contribute to developing the Vietnamese aviation sector by preparing self-disciplined pilots with the right skillset ready to work in a complex operational environment,” he added.

Nguyen Manh Quan, CEO of Bamboo Airways, says: “The MPL program conducted by Bamboo Airways and BAA Training is the first and only comprehensive initial cadet training program in Vietnam. We hope that this advanced and cost-optimized program will open the door for Vietnamese student pilots to realize their dream of conquering the sky.

We are now strengthening our time-tested partnership with BAA Training with the new MPL training program. This will significantly assist us in shaping a new generation of professional and skillful pilots meeting international standards to best serve both domestic and international markets. Our cooperation with such a prestigious aviation service provider marks the next milestone in Bamboo Airways’ roadmap toward the self-provided pilot source”.

The MPL program is designed to bring advanced pilot training methods, with many outstanding advantages. The training time is optimized to 18 months, following modern European standards, along with up to 30% cost savings compared to traditional training programs. 100% of graduated student pilots will be guaranteed jobs with one of the most attractive benefit policies in Vietnam‘s aviation market.

The launch of the MPL program is another step in strengthening the existing partnership between Bamboo Airways and BAA Training, the beginning of which dates back to 2019. Since then, BAA Training Vietnam has been supporting Bamboo Airways’ pilots with Airbus A320 full flight simulator training and arranged Type Rating training for Embraer aircraft type with the help of its partnership network in Europe.
