"The event was visited by over 200 interested individuals from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. During the event, all attendees had the opportunity to get information about the airBalticTraining Pilot Academy, its program and to consult with airBalticTraining Pilot
Academy representatives," the airline said.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic and himself a fully-qualified airline pilot said: “We are happy to see so much interest from people already in the first week of the application process. This brand new education program is a great opportunity for all who wish to pursue a career in aviation by becoming pilots in two years. This is a unique education program that was not available in the Baltics before – we offer high-calibre pilot training, which will lead to employment as an airBaltic pilot.”

Persons selected will be the first class of students of the professional airline pilot training program and will become airBaltic pilots upon completion of the program in about two years' time, with a plan to educate 20 pilots per year.

The first academic year will start in March, 2018 with the theoretical training courses.
