The first student from Finland has recently joined the Ab-Initio school at Baltic Aviation Academy. Tomi Salonen took advantage of the opportunity to become a pilot in a much more economical way abroad and had his government sponsor it.
Scandinavian countries have been known to provide free education and in addition to that, encourage students to acquire their degrees abroad by providing government study loans with small interest rates. According to Tomi Salonen, CPL modular student at Baltic Aviation Academy, education in Finland is free, however foreign educational institutions need to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland to have Finish students come study with the governmental support. From now on, Finish students who come to Baltic Aviation Academy will have an easy way to receive the loan, accommodation and support funding from the government.
