I worked in Lithuanian Air Forces for 25 years, after retiring got job proposals only in such places as Afghanistan or Africa... Lucky, found AFA‘s advertisement to become a SAAB 340 pilot and work in Europe. In June 2016  finished SAAB 340 Type Rating course and ONLY after 1 month started to fly as a captain for air company in Latvia (with a good salary). Thanks ATO AFA for professional, low cost training & help to find a great job in civil aviation.
