BAA Training

BAA Training is not just a flight academy or a simulator training center. It is much more than that. As one of Europe's biggest EASA Approved Training Organizations (ATOs), we deliver full-scope pilot training solutions that encompass both Ab Initio and Type Rating training, followed by an airline job guarantee in specific instances.

20 years of experience

Within more than 20 years of aviation training experience, we have built the entire infrastructure to make a pathway from zero to an airline pilot as smooth as possible. BAA Training operates a ground school with options to study theory in a classroom or virtually from anywhere in the world, a flight school with a young and diverse fleet, three simulator training centers equipped with state-of-the-art flight simulation training devices and two consultancy centers.

2 flight bases

Operating two flight bases in Spain, Lleida-Alguaire and Castellon, we deliver excellent quality flight training on glass cockpit Cessna 172s. Learning glass cockpit skills is essential since all airlines (but not all flight schools) use glass cockpits. In addition, training at an international Lleida-Alguaire Airport is highly advantageous as students can get used to their natural future working environment.

20 000 hours of flying in 2021

In 2021, our flight school reported some impressive numbers. In total, the students did 20 000 hours of flying while training for their future pilot careers.

50+ countries where students come from

The variety of training programs (ATPL Integrated, CPL Modular, MPL, cadet programs, and more) and multiple training locations attract students from more than 50+ countries. You will get the chance to immerse yourself in a truly multicultural environment!

Synergy with instructors

The BAA Training team and especially instructors provide a great training experience. Here at the flight school, they help us apply what we learned during ground school in the cockpit. With the instructors who make us grow and expand our knowledge, tremendous synergy is produced, and that’s exactly what you need in a good and safe training environment.
