Letter from the president
Update from Baltia's President
Firstly, I would personally like to thank all of our loyal shareholders for their patience and support. This has been a long and tedious journey. For the last several months, Baltia's operational team at Willow Run Airport has been working diligently to complete the final stages of air carrier certification.
Just to keep you up to date with some of the latest developments:
Last month (June, 2015), Baltia's Initial Cadre Check Airmen successfully completed their recurrent training in a simulator in preparation for the Check Airmen certification to be conducted during the upcoming proving flights.
In preparation for the revenue generating phase of our operation, the second class of pilots has completed their training (this is a second group of pilots in addition to the Check Airmen group mentioned above). Also, in addition to the first class of Stewards who have also completed their recurrent training, we have selected a second class of Stewards in preparation for the revenue generating flights. The training of the second class of Stewards is planned for the latter part of July.
Our Maiden B747 aircraft, N706BL, is maintained by Baltia's maintenance staff on an ongoing basis to ensure her airworthiness. The scheduled maintenance is current per the Boeing maintenance program, and unscheduled maintenance is addressed on a daily basis. We have also made improvements at our maintenance department and our maintenance training is up to date as per regulations.
These are just a few of the exciting things that are currently underway.
Again, I personally want to thank each and every one of our valued shareholders for their patience and support.
Your commitment to our cause makes this all possible.
Very exciting times are ahead . . . Go Baltia!
President & CEO
