The Israel Civil Aviation Authority has issued to the Baltic Aviation Academy (Lithuania) an approval certificate to operate the type rating trainings for Boeing 737 aircraft. Aviation training centre became the first approved type rating training organization (TRTO) in the Baltic region to start trainings for the Israel airlines and private pilots.

On July 2011 Lead Air pilots started their initial Boeing 737 CL trainings: theory trainings were carried out in the ground School in Tel Aviv, Israel, and Boeing 737 flight sessions were held in Vil¬nius, Lithuania. On August 7Th the first pilots from Israel air company passed the exam and received type rating certificate.
“Lead Air has just met international criteria for being an independent airline, putting an important stress to the personnel training. We were searching for the best partner for our air company’s pilot trainings and Baltic Aviation Academy met our criteria. After the first crews training we can emphasize the quality of Western aviation training with the advantage of costs in the Baltic region.“, comments Zvika Rosenberg, Vice President of Operations at Lead Air airline.
