Avion Express to launch its first MPL Training Programme with BAA Training

The narrow-body ACMI operator, Avion Express, has launched the MPL Training Programme with its long-term partner BAA Training.

The competency-focused MPL Training Programme, that is set to begin in August 2019, is based on a multi-crew training that imitates the actual cockpit experience working at the airline. It will cover all stages of pilot training, as well as integrate Avion Express procedures from the very first days. Thus, after completing the comprehensive training, the newly qualified pilots will be fully submerged in the company’s culture and ready to start flying right away.

“World-known airlines have adopted the MPL Training with great success over the recent years, and we are proud to be the first ones in the Baltics to launch it together with BAA Training,” says Stasys Viltrakis, Avion Express Vice President Flight Operations. “The ever-changing aviation market demands a very high level of professional flight crew competencies. Although we always put a lot of attention to the skills of our team members, having this integrated full-scale MPL Training Programme will let us take it to a whole new level,” he continues.

BAA Training is a long-term partner of Avion Express. As part of this partnership, BAA Training has been providing the full-flight simulators for the pilot training of Avion Express. Additionally, the two companies created an Ab-Initio Cadet Programme for people with no flying experience and Type Rating Training Programme.
