The theoretical part of your training is conducted at the headquarters of the academy in Vilnius, Lithuania. Take a 360 tour.
Living in Vilnius can pose a unique experience for every student interested in discovering new culture and travelling around.

Being in the heart of Europe it is pretty easy to travel around as you can easily reach even furthermost cities in a few hours, also, Vilnius has as easy access to nature within walking distance.
Therefore, „QS Best Student Cities 2018″ placed Vilnius among TOP 100 best cities in the world for international students. According to the ranking indicators, the capital of Lithuania has a fairly low cost of living compared to other European capitals.
The city of Vilnius perfectly combines high-quality studies with the unforgettable entertainment and comfortable living for a reasonable cost.

Being a part of BAA Training is a great experience! I appreciate the quality of the instructors and facilities. Also it is so good to be sure that I can always count on the help of the staff. Moreover, I like the way the airline is checking our progression which is quite promising for the future. They truly care about their cadets!
Instructors at BAA Training are professionals sharing the best experience and knowledge with students, indeed. The staff is also very friendly and ready to help handle any issue. I would really recommend BAA Training for future pilots willing to have the best and up-to-date knowledge as well as experience for their next step carrier.
By combining pilot training with bachelor studies, you gain double advantage. With this study program you not only get pilot license, but bachelor degree as well, which will be a huge advantage on your CV not mentioning your professional experience.
Regarding the training programme with BAA Training I'm really happy about the idea to have our flying season in the summer right after the theory course and before the other theory course in autumn starts. It allows us to have a "break" and flying reminds us why we are doing the training. Even though the theory is the hard part of a pilot training, I still really liked to do it at BAA Training, mainly because our ground instructors did their best to make the theory easier by being really patient and available whenever we need them.
Wizz Air Cadet training programme is prepared by professionals and adjusted to let us start our job of dream as fast as possible. The schedule is tight but this is necessary to complete the training within the given time. The instructors are experienced people with passion for flying. The way they share their knowledge with us made our way of becoming professional pilots much easier
I chose the Integrated ATPL, because it's effective - I was able to finish it in just over 1,5 years. I found all the instructors to be very helpful and they really put energy and time into teaching both the theory and the flying part.
From the very beginning I knew that being an instructor requires special skills, knowledge and patience that were a challenge for me. Although the Flight Instructor course lasted only a few weeks, I found the professional guidance and training on all fronts. This allowed to pass the knowledge and skills to the new generation of future airline pilots.
During my flying season I had an opportunity to fly with many instructors, learn from their different experience, which shared with me. So in the end I could say that I managed to become a cadet pilot only with BAA Training instructors’ help.
Not only BAA Training is growing fast, but it also cares about every single student! Flight instructors and examiners are really friendly and have great experience. Also, they speak fluent English or even other languages.
Sincere thanks to all my instructors, managers and everyone else supporting me throughout my training. I wish the best of luck to all my colleagues and the future students joining the dream maker (aka BAA Training).
