YPSILANTI, Mich., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Baltia Air Lines (OTCBB:BLTA) is excited to announce the commencement of training for its initial cadre of pilots.  

The 7 week course which began on November 11th consists of non-aircraft specific courses, aircraft specific courses and simulator sessions.  Baltia's flight crew training is a major milestone for the Willow Run-based start up airline. The pilot training is being accomplished at a certified state-of-the-art airline training facility in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Balita is currently in the process of obtaining its Air Carrier Certification.  In the Certification process sequence, training precedes the mini-evacuation test and the proving flights. 

Baltia's plan is to provide the first non-stop service for passengers, cargo and mail between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, Russia, Europe's 4th largest city.  Baltia also plans to provide additional scheduled non-stop service between North America and Eastern European capitals, once it gets underway.  "I am so proud of our staff," stated Igor Dmitrowsky, CEO of Baltia. "Their dedication and professionalism has brought us to this phase of the Air Carrier Certification," Mr. Dmitrowsky further stated.
