The five-year agreement will involve up to 150 cadets. The courses will be delivered under EASA regulations for the commercial license.
As long as the aviation sector is expected to face a tremendous growth, Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, expands the spectrum of its cadet programs and chooses BAA Training as a reliable partner that will ensure the needed amount of high-quality pilots in the future.
“We are looking for passionate and devoted young people who have little or no previous flying experience and are dreaming of a “workplace in the sky”.
