There is no before and after. As previously mentioned, just read what has been written here. This would just give you enough information. For the future references, if there would be some improvement, probably people would also write here some positive feedbacks but there is no at the moment. I hope it is clear.

They’re improving about the marketing skills as I can see from here.

Current waiting times during the progress of training;

Theory to VFR 1-1,5 months
VFR to Night VFR 3-4 weeks
Night VFR to FNPT 2 months
FNPT to IFR 3 months
IFR to Multi Engine 1 month and increasing

Basically minimum 8 months of sitting at home. Please correct me if numbers are not reflecting real waiting times.

do you really think it is funny? I am about to pay 62000$, worrying, trying to figure out the truth., and what do I receive ? A “perfect” joker, that instead of writing down a real facts and things, writes me some stupid bullshit and thinks that it’s fun! If you still didn’t get, I should tell you - your jokes are not appropriate and relevant to the case. Go to circus, it is a place where jokes are very welcomed!

Mate, chill down. Instead please have some read on older posts in this thread to find out the responses.
Since you mentioned 62k, were you accepted to Wizz cadet programme or has the price dropped?

Finally, nobody forces you to pay that amount to BAA - there are many other great schools around.

I just talked with a captain. In his previous Airline, the hiring of former BAA students is a No Go.
Says a lot about the quality of the school...

Can you still help out with this? I'm in the final stages of the Wizz air cadet program selection process and would like some advice.

BAA s reputation isn't the greatest in the aviation community, however one captains feedback isn't enough to generalize the whole crowd coming out of there either.

The Captain's feedback is just another among many others
it's a low quality school, the prices have increased which have made the deal not really interesting.
Graduation is 6-8 months delayed so far, just for information (€€€).

Now guys you know more about the school. If you enroll, you perfectly know what to expect, big boys.

Maybe in that captain's opinion, who says he is right.

I am a recent graduate of the school and got a job for a sponsored type rating with good pay at the first assessment I did, so couldn't have been that bad.

The school has many issues and i wouldn't recommend any friends to go there, but to say everyone coming out of there is rubbish and cannot find jobs or companies have no interest in them is not true at all, not in my experience certainly.

BAA is maybe not the best school so far but many many students are already pilot today in some big airlines.

For the others that cannot afford EasyJet program at +120k€. Wizzair cadet program is really attractive for only (non PPL holders) 62k€ TR included (bounded).

It would be good if you could tell us more, because with all your posts, it looks like you are mostly pissed off at BAA rather than being objective, and all aspiring pilots need objectivity to make an important decision on choosing their flight school.

From other side, I just hope someone from BAA is reading this comments, so they could improve or do something about it.

Cheers mate!

IFR flight partially halted at the moment due to lack of instructors for couple of days already and probably will last few more days.

A320 hour building

Dear expert fellows.

I need advice regarding A320 hour building program which is offered by aviation cv. Are they reliable? One of my friend didn’t had good experience from them. He was dropped from program and aviation cv not even replying to email!

I think it is not a right place to ask this. Topic is about BAA Training but not about Aviation.CV. If you read this thread carefully through you would find some information regarding to AviationCV. But again it is totally irrelevant.
