Turkish Airlines has signed a contract with BAA Training for a Cadet training programme.

One of the TOP 3 biggest independent aviation training centres in Europe, BAA Training, will deliver training to almost 300 cadets for the airline in 3.5 years.

Having one of Europe's youngest fleets with an average age of 8,2 years, Turkish Airlines has a total of 335 aircraft, of which 224 are narrow, 88 are wide bodies, and 23 are freighter. To operate the current fleet, the number of which is set to increase over 500 in 2023 per the carrier's growth targets, the airline has now almost 5000 pilots on its team

“Being chosen to provide pilot training for one of the leading airlines in the world once again allows us to contribute to the growing aviation market, thus – the growing pilot demand. With strategic investments into the infrastructure and the proven experience providing cadet training programmes, we are capable of providing the high standard pilot training and together building a safer tomorrow of aviation,” said Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at BAA Training.
