Where you will study

Europe: Lithuania or Spain

Your ATPL Integrated training journey will begin in Europe, where the aviation industry is a strategically important industry for many countries. You will do your theory in Spain or Lithuania and then proceed to flight training in Spain.

You can start from complete zero and go all the way up until you are typerated, which authorizes you to fly a large airplane like B737 or A320.

  • Young fleet & Flight bases. You will practise on Tecnam P2002, Tecnam P2006 or Cessna 172 at our 3 flight bases.

    Innovative solutions. We apply the latest technological, intellectual, IT-based solutions and VR technology in our training which provides a huge added benefit when combined with training on real aircraft and/or a number of full flight simulators we operate.

    After completing theory and flight training, you will get a CPL – commercial pilot licence but will not be ready to operate a commercial aircraft yet. For this, you will do your Type Rating studies in Europe or Vietnam with the possibility of choosing a preferred aircraft type.


If you opt for flying the A320 type of aircraft, your Type Rating phase will be organized in a brand-new training centre in Ho Chi Minh city.

Two state-of-the-art FFSs, A320ceo and A320neo, modern classrooms and briefing/debriefing rooms are ready to serve your needs.

Steps of the
preselection process:

Please fill out the form below in order to get your personal manager at BAA Training who will guide you through the whole preselection process.
After you provide a scanned copy of your passport valid to travel abroad, educational documents and your Resume (CV), you are ready to set the assessment date.
A candidate’s assessment is a procedure fully carried out by BAA Training. It helps us determine whether a candidate possesses the necessary qualities and skills to become a pilot. The entire assessment takes 4.5 hours and consists of the 4 following parts:
  • Cognitive abilities / Aon Assessment Solutions test system
  • English / Aon Assessment Solutions test system
  • Personal traits, competencies / Aon Assessment Solutions test system
  • Interview with an assessment specialist.
The assessment can be done either at our training centre or online. In both cases, the procedure is the same, except that you can do the online assessment at any convenient location.

Our students fly


We invite students to select whether they want to join training in a traditional or virtual classroom from the beginning of their studies. The groups have different training start dates. To ensure no training schedule discrepancies, the student has to cover all the training phases during the timeframe dedicated to one particular group.
Students training via a virtual classroom start their flight phase in Spain in 12 months, right after the end of the theoretical part.
Students can expect questions about the pilot job, difficulties, and most significant challenges a pilot might face at work. Also, it is crucial to demonstrate motivation and passion for taking up this pilot career path. Last but not least, a candidate is given a test that allows evaluating:
  • Personal traits and competencies (Operational, Interactive, Motivational)
  • Skills and cognitive abilities (Complex control, Monitoring ability, Respond speed, Multitasking, Mechanical reasoning, etc.)
  • English language proficiency (Speaking, Listening, Grammar).
ATPL Integrated takes 18 months to complete. The all-in-one package ATPL + Type Rating + Base training takes around 20 months (18-20 months ATPL theory, 5 weeks Type Rating and one day Base training).
Type Rating is a regulating agency’s certification of an airplane pilot to fly a specific aircraft type (A320, B737CL, B737 NG, or other) that requires additional training beyond the scope of the initial licence. It comprises theoretical and practical elements, with the practical part including training in a full flight simulator.
For those who have finished PPL, we have special conditions. They get a discount from the original package price, and their VFR training phase is reduced. However, we can name the exact final price only after the candidate successfully passes the assessment at BAA Training and after we examine all the documents related to the candidate’s previous flight experience.
There is a flexible payment option. You will set a precise individual payment plan with one of our consultants.
