Marijus Ravoitis Takes Over the Management of the Training Company

Marijus Ravoitis, who is making an internal move from a Chief Sales Officer’s role, will guide the organization in its mission to deliver world-class aviation training to both corporate and individual clients. In his four years of serving BAA Training, the company has acknowledged his dedication to creating an environment of accountability and transparency. He has been moving the organization forward, adopting the right global business strategies and building a rapport with clients during both triumphant and uncertain times for the industry.

Commenting on the appointment, Marijus Ravoitis said: „I look forward to building on the foundation that has been laid, driving an industry-leading growth that will benefit both BAA Training’s airline and private clients as well as all of the company’s employees and shareholders. We will also focus on pursuing the innovation and digitalization activities and realizing new services and ideas.“

BAA Training’s Global Expansion

The pandemic has not undermined the wide range and scope of activities the company has been getting involved in. As the aviation recovery is imminent, BAA Training plans even more remarkable growth, so the need for internal transfer and reassignment of ownership was born.

The recently opened simulator training centre in Barcelona – BAA Training Spain – is fully functional at the moment with its Airbus A320 simulator being booked tightly, especially by Air Maroc flight crews. Another full flight simulator – Boeing 737 MAX – has just arrived at the training facility and is currently being assembled before it can be used for professional training.

A modern training centre in Zhengzhou city, established on a franchise basis, marked the first BAA Training name’s appearance in China in June 2020 – amid the Covid-19 crisis. It was designed to provide the capacity of 40,000 flight hours per year and train approximately 4,000 pilots.

The most recent and substantial news, to be formalized yet, is that BAA Training plans to open another simulator training centre in Europe by 2023 in partnership with a leading European airline. It is yet one of the largest ever projects BAA Training gets engaged in that will help it follow the extensive expansion path envisioned. A few more of such large-scale projects are expected to be accomplished in years to come.
