Graduates About Us
My dream was to become an airline pilot, after careful research I chose BAA Training as a well-trusted pilot school with a great history in training professional pilots, with professional and friendly instructors, a well-structured training program equipped with all the necessary material for a professional pilot training.
With many partner airlines of BAA Training, I have chosen SmartLynx airlines to launch my professional airline career, as SmartLynx is one of Europe’s leading ACMI.
Having an amazing opportunity to work with SmartLynx means that I will have a chance to experience many bases on behalf of different airlines.
In SmartLynx we work in harmony, flight crew together with cabin crew in a cheerful and friendly atmosphere.
I’m grateful to be part of this great airline, and the opportunity to make my dream come true.
Following a suggestion of a friend, I applied for SmartLynx Type Rating Course in November 2017.During the Course and later on during the Line Training, I came across great instructors who were very skilled and supportive. I got the impression that every Trainee is valued and treated with attention and care. Even after their working hours, they were available and eager to help us reach our goal. Training itself is very demanding, both mentally and physically where stability is extremely important. Thanks to great instructors and Captains, this was all achieved due to their friendly approach and relaxed atmosphere in the flight deck.
I personally see SmartLynx as a great opportunity for professional advancement. It’s vibrant, challenging and offers many options to upgrade your skills. I changed several bases and flew dozens of airports already during the first year of flying. Met all sorts of people, professional, skilled and dedicated, all aiming to make SmartLynx better environment for all of us.
I feel happy and fulfilled, I am eager to grow with SmartLynx as a pilot and as a person. The learning process is hard, it’s still the beginning and I am grateful for all the knowledge and experiences
I see this opportunity that I got as the beginning of a great journey.
