airBaltic opens applications for next pilot academy class

airBaltic has opened the application process for the spring 2019 group at airline’s newly established pilot academy.

Students will become airBaltic pilots upon successful completion of the full-time programme in about two years.

Martin Gauss, chief executive of airBaltic, said: “Having seen the highly motivated students of the first two pilot academy groups, it certainly brings back old memories of my own pilot studies.

“It is safe to say that these students will soon become a core part of our airline.”

The application process for the academy will end on January 14th – with more information here.


Pauls Cālītis, airBaltic senior vice president, flight operations, said: “With state-of-the-art Diamond Aircraft and simulator we received this year, professional instructors and Integrated Airline Transport Pilot course certification, airBaltic pilot academy is the go-to programme for aspiring Baltic pilots.

“This is the only programme to offer high calibre pilot training, which will lead to employment as an airBaltic pilot.

“We are proud to offer this unique opportunity for all Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians.”

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering the largest variety of destinations and convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East.
