Happy Customers

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
