” An Astonfly alumni having followed the professional pilot training, I got the opportunity to have a quality training with professionalism, meeting the requirements of the Pilot job, on a modern aircraft fleet with competent and demanding instructors.

Thanks to this quality training, I succeeded on my Boeing 737 type rating and I have immediately been selected by Air Baltic to perform my first line training.

Last generation aircraft, clean and available due to a mechanical workshop on site and an efficient handling service.
