BAA Training, European standard aviation training centre, has announced that it has gained an approval to provide ATR 42/72 full flight simulator services for Tanzanian aviation companies. After the audit of Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) passed smoothly, ATR 42/72 type rating training and full flight simulator dry or wet lease can be provided in Vienna, Austria.
Inspectors of TCAA audited the headquarters of BAA Training, its infrastructure and network of instructors. Also, they visited the ATR 42/72 full flight simulator in Vienna, Austria, to make sure the training device meets all aviation training requirements.
Representatives from TCAA did not have any complaints after carrying out a detailed inspection.
“TCAA approval helps to support the further development of Tanzanian airlines and pilots by providing easier access to advanced aviation training. This will allow pilots to receive critical training in Europe with the network of highly trusted instructors, reliable training and cost-effective solutions. The wide network of services will enable customers and prospective pilots to take full advantage of the cooperation with BAA Training,” comments Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at BAA Training.
By expanding its geographical capabilities, BAA Training has been successfully working with African market for over 5 years now. With the TCAA approval, airlines will be able to make substantial savings in both costs and time spent on pilots training.
