Ground Handling Training Courses Now Taught at Baltic Aviation Academy

Aviation Training Centre, Baltic Aviation Academy, added ground handling training program to its wide range of services offered. Training programs will include a large variety of aircraft handling, equipment handling, passenger handling, dangerous goods and safety courses.

Baltic Aviation Academy’s ground handling training programs are designed according to the IATA and EASA Ground Handling Training requirements. This assures that the training provided is optimized and harmonized with the safety standards for ground operations in all the regions. Baltic Aviation Academy’s ground handling training courses and recurrent trainings will be conducted by the certified instructors using all the required technical equipment available on base. Depending on the difficulty of the course and service, theoretical training time will range from a couple hour class all the way to 2 weeks. Hands-on experience will be scheduled after the theoretical part is over. Ground handling training courses will be offered in Vilnius or at any other location which is convenient for the customer. Clients may choose the language that courses will be conducted in out of the three offered: English, Russian or Lithuanian.

“Safety in the air starts with the safety on the ground. Ground handling is an integral part of airline operation and we want to provide our clients with a full package of the services that they can receive in one place. Adding ground handling training as one more service makes us very appealing for the airlines and even airports that need to train or provide the recurrent training for their pilots, crew members and ground handling personnel,” said Dainius Meilunas, Deputy General Director for Training at Baltic Aviation Academy.   

Until now, Baltic Aviation Academy provided Ab-Initio training, type rating training courses, and now includes ground handling training for airlines and airports.
