BAA Training, one of the top three leading aviation training academies in Europe, and Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC), the only aviation-oriented university in France, have signed an agreement and developed a BAA Training – ENAC mutual training program, covering Ab Initio and advanced training. With a proven track record of two-year collaboration, the companies are eager to foster their synergies further and establish long-term business relationships.
Marijus Ravoitis, CEO at BAA Training, says: „By signing this agreement, we are further taking steps towards making our strategic partnership stronger. BAA Training will aim to enhance its capacities to reach and maintain ENAC’s standards under the scope of the BAA Training – ENAC mutual training program. We will apply best industry practices to provide quality training for airlines preparing for the aviation recovery and projected reemerging pilot shortage in years to come. “
Thierry de Basquiat de Mugriet, the President of the Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile, says: “This agreement seals a project to develop a high-quality training program based on ENAC and BAA capacities and competencies. The impact of the global pandemic further emphasizes the importance of building relationships and partnerships to maintain and support the development of quality flight training”.
The mutual program is currently available for corporate clients. The first students will start their training in early 2022. On a second step, BAA Training and ENAC may study the possibility to open registration to clients coming from other backgrounds than airline companies.
Program structure and parties’ responsibilities
The partners have shared responsibilities regarding the new program’s components: BAA Training will deliver ground school training, VFR, MCC, JOC and Type Rating, whereas ENAC will cover the IFR training stage.
BAA Training entered into partnership with ENAC in 2019. Since then, it has supported the French university with both theory and flight training.
