For the second year in a row, Aviation training centre Baltic Aviation Academy, which is headquartered in Vilnius in Lithuania, is expanding its fleet by purchasing an additional multi-engine Tecnam P2006T Twin.
This second multi-engine aircraft will allow students to complete MEP training in a faster and more efficient manner while the Academy continues to grow and increase its number of students. Last year the Academy purchased five aircraft, which nearly doubled its training capacity. The newest addition of another Tecnam P2006T Twin now brings the entire fleet to twelve aircraft, used for Ab Initio training.
“Currently we have over a hundred students at our academy that are going to need MEP training,” says Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of Baltic Aviation Academy. “Therefore providing sufficient access to multi-engine aircraft is very important, especially for those who are about to graduate with their licences. This is also a step towards the fulfillment of the planned growth and expansion plans,”
The reason that Baltic Aviation Academy’s fleet consists of nine Tecnam P2002 and two Tecnam P2006T aircraft is not a coincidence, but rather a choice for quality and price ratio that the Italian design provides.
“The market for training aircraft is not huge, therefore we choose the company which manufactures both single and multi engine aircraft,” says Jaroslav Vostrikov, Deputy Head of Training for Aviation Training Ab Initio at Baltic Aviation Academy. “It means smoother training for students, and of course, simpler maintenance processes,”
“Flight Training Organisations have been delighted with the reliability, efficiency and ease of maintenance that Tecnam aircraft afford,” says Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s Managing Director. “Tecnam aircraft are bringing FTO’s basic and advance flight training offerings to an entirely new level of quality, helping their students develop the skills they need in a modern cockpit environment.”
