INVESTING IN PEOPLE

The success of our business depends on success of our people.

Building a long-term partnership with employees.

We believe in long-term partnership with the employees – we are aviation family, and we will walk extra miles to provide all the help they need to unlock their growth potential, unleash their talent and achieve their goals with us.

We have various training programs, aimed at developing true professionals armed with the ability to sustain consistent business growth as well as progress in their careers.

Every year we welcome up to 100 students for internships within our group. Depending on the area of their studies, these students get to know the everyday ins and outs of running the organization, get familiarized with highly sophisticated equipment, and learn from the leading specialists in the industry.

Sharing knowledge and experience with the society

In addition to investing in the development of our people, we share our knowledge, experience with industry and academic society, raising awareness towards aviation and related business.

Investing in education and raising awareness
  • We promote the pilot profession and the aviation sector in general. We organize excursions for children and students which gives them the possibility to try a full flight simulator and see the process of aircraft maintenance in our hangars. We believe that the future generations should become acquainted with the aviation industry and with that grow to respect the aviation-related professions.
  • We invest money in preparing the next generation of aviation mechanics to the better future of both regional and global aviation. These trainings are comprised of a base maintenance course designed to provide all the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain an Aircraft Technical Maintenance Specialist license. All practical training sessions are conducted in the spacious, state-of-the-art, fully equipped 14,000 and 8,000 sq. meter hangars in Vilnius and Kaunas. We guarantee job positions in the fastest growing aircraft maintenance and support company FL Technics as soon as the study program is completed.
  • We arrange international and national open door days for students.
  • We organize the cycle of educational sessions for beginning pilots and candidate pilots. The cycle “Pilot Talks” is arranged to take place in Warsaw, Poland; Madrid, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Milan, Italy; Moscow, Russia; Saint Petersburg, Russia; Vilnius, Lithuania, and Stockholm, Sweden, by December 2012.
  • Every year we participate in the exhibition ‘Self-Education. Studies. Career’ and in ‘Career Days’ arranged by the universities of Lithuania.
  • We admire and support enthusiasm and creativity, especially in relation to aviation. In 2013, FL Technics sponsored CanSat, a contest for unmanned aircraft and rocket creators, which took place in Lithuania. Small and middle-sized UAVs are extremely useful in ensuring fire safety in forests, assisting media broadcasting, conducting rescue operations, geological exploration etc. We hope that events such as this will not only help Lithuanian youth participate in the development of this rapidly growing global industry, but promote creativeness, innovative thinking, and development of new technologies in general.
  • n 2015, Avia Solutions Group and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University agreed to cooperate in the development and implementation of aviation training related projects. Under the agreement, VGTU supports Avia Solutions Group in finding young talent while the Group provides various opportunities for VGTU students to acquire practical experience in the form of an internship.
  • In 2017, Avia Solutions Group provided support for Vilnius Gediminas Technical University’s project Vilnius Gediminas Technical University Alumni: 100 Prospects.
