Baltic Aviation Academy on a old and shitty box and the quality of training is comparable to those words.
I heard good things about European Aviation Academy in Rome... Dagli un'occhiata 😉​​

How much do they charge(BAA)? The cheapest TR i found so far goes for 13k + base and that includes ng diff .

Sorry i made a mistake and what i meant is that base training is not included in the price , it goes extra for something like 4-6k euro. I found it on Royal star aero page, but i don't have any experience with them.

I have done TR in BAA for 16K. That was incl. Base training, NG Difference Course and Hotel.

In my opinion it wasnt that bad. BAA gives you the tools and it is up to you to perform well and work hard on your Procedures. Flying is one thing. That is easy, but procedures and flows is the hard part.

Yes the sim is old so as Classics in general. What do you expect? Classics are old so the sim is not the youngest either. I think they would also the TR on the NG, but that might be a bit more expensive, but on other side I think it is worth it as the Classic sim is NOT certified for PBN. The NG is certified.

You could also try in Air Baltic. If you do well you will fly for at least a season on the B737 in Air Baltic.

I dont knownwhat they offer now. I have done rating in 2016.

As said earlier, the sim is not certified for PBN. That is what you should also take into account.

What job? They're phasing out the 737 and they lost quite a few money after they were sued by some pilots.
