Baltic Aviation Academy Provides Pilot Training for Modern Logistics

— Modern Logistics’ First Flight Crew Class Completes Training with Baltic Aviation Academy —

Baltic Aviation Academy, an aviation training centre located in Vilnius (Lithuania), has entered into a partnership with Modern Logistics to provide high-quality flight crew training to Modern Logistics, in accordance with their safety-focused flight crew training program, and to prepare Modern Logistics’ flight crews for efficient service.

Baltic Aviation Academy cooperated and worked closely with Modern Logistics to obtain certification by the Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority – ANAC, as an approved Training Center, opening new markets for Baltic Aviation and new training opportunities for Brazilian operators.

Modern Logistics has developed a robust proficiency-based flight crew training program focused on safety and efficiency, and which provides its aircrews with the knowledge and skills that go beyond standard aviation requirements.

Baltic Aviation Academy recently trained the first class of Modern Logistics flight crews for the Boeing 737. Modern’s first team of flight crews gained their 737- 400 type rating on Baltic’s Full Flight Simulator, along with additional aviation training required by Modern Logistics.

‘We strongly believe that being selected as a partner by Modern Logistics, rates Baltic Aviation Academy as a world class pilot training provider. The initial company establishment stages are vital for its successful development; therefore Baltic Aviation Academy is more than glad to contribute at this phase. There is no doubt that this partnership will bring mutual benefit and success’, commented Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at Baltic Aviation Academy.

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Batic Aviation Academy, and we’re extremely confident that they can support all our flight crew training needs.  Baltic has a professional and experienced training team who understands the airline business and maintains the same professional standards and integrity we value”, said Captain Alvaro Neto, Vice President Flight Operations, Modern Logistics.

Modern Logistics will begin operations with 737- 400 Special Freighter airplanes to launch the air solution of its integrated distribution platform. As part of its supply-chain, Modern will roll-out a network of logistics centres that will focus on supplying Brazilian businesses with a “one-stop-shop” distribution solution. Launch is scheduled for the end of the first half of 2014.
