Textron Aviation to Deliver 48 Cessna Skyhawk Aircraft to BAA Training



Textron Aviation entered an agreement with BAA Training for the purchase of 48 Cessna Skyhawk aircraft, which are expected to be delivered in 2026. The deal, inked at the 2023 Dubai Airshow, expands BAA Training’s existing fleet, offering increased capacity for students. The Cessna Skyhawk is designed and manufactured by Textron Aviation, a Textron company.

“For over six decades, the Cessna Skyhawk has inspired the next generation of pilots and served as the world’s leading flight trainer,” Chris Crow, vice president of piston sales at Textron Aviation, said. “We are delighted to continue the relationship with BAA Training to provide their students access to the most produced single-engine aircraft globally.”

“BAA Training has set an ambitious milestone to achieve a capacity of up to 1,000 students per year, necessitating a significant expansion of our fleet. We are glad to finalize this order, as the addition of 48 Cessna Skyhawks will bolster our resources, enabling us to accommodate the growing demand for training and further solidify our position in the industry,” Marijus Ravoitis, CEO of BAA Training, said.

BAA Training offers aviation training solutions for aspiring commercial pilots, ranging from Ab Initio training to Type Rating, available across multiple locations, including Spain, Lithuania, France and Vietnam. Additionally, the company provides pilot training services through its consultancy office in India and a sales representative office in the United Arab Emirates.
