Want to take a peek inside the airBaltic Training Centre, where the airline’s team of pilots and cabin attendants are trained for duty? Here’s your chance! We are proud to present a brand new virtual tour of the airBaltic Training Centre. Visitors can virtually enter the glass-encased building and have a look around, zooming in and out of various rooms and facilities, including the Boeing 737 flight simulator.
But pay close attention to what you see, because today, from 12 noon to 5 p.m., Wingtips is featuring a competition! Every hour on the hour (12 noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., etc.) , we will post one question about the Training Centre; you will have 15 minutes to answer. The first person to answer correctly or most precisely within the given 15 minutes will get one point. At 5 p.m., the participant with the most points will win a special prize: a real pilot experience in airBaltic’s very own Boeing 737 flight simulator!
