BAA Training, one of the leading independent aviation training organizations, is expanding its geographical presence and opening its fourth simulator center, BAA Training France, near Orly Airport in Paris. By the end of the year, two Boeing 737 NG, an A320neo and a Boeing 747-400 simulator will be installed at the facility. It is expected that around over 2000 pilots will be trained there annually.
arijus Ravoitis, CEO of BAA Training, says: “With the opening of the new training center, we aim to create a training environment that adheres to world-class pilot training industry standards. The brand-new facility will support one of our primary and highly valued clients, Transavia France, by offering state-of-the-art equipment and tailored services. However, we also work with many other operators in Europe and on different continents. Therefore, the establishment of BAA Training France plays a crucial role in providing more training opportunities location-wise to our partners worldwide.”
Olivier Mazzucchelli, CEO of Transavia France, comments: “BAA Training and Transavia France share the same DNA: safety first and efficient operations with a fast-growing, entrepreneurial and agile mindset. BAA Training demonstrated its understanding of our needs from day one to support our growing and challenging training plan on B737NG and from Q3 2023 – on A320neo.”
