The Kazakhstan Civil Aviation Academy and Patria have signed a continuation agreement on the provision of commercial pilot training for a second group of students. This commercial pilot training is based on a memorandum of understanding that was signed in 2013 during President Sauli Niinistö’s state visit to Kazakhstan.
Patria will train 14 Kazakh students, chosen from around 50 applicants, by the end of 2016. Training will begin with theory instruction and the students will travel to Finland for flight training in June 2015.
