About Antanas Gustaitis' Aviation Institute

Study locally, work globally

 

VGTU Antanas Gustaitis Aviation Institute (AGAI) is an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) , preparing aviation specialists for the major areas of the aviation industry. Since its inception in 1993, the Institute has rapidly developed and now administers university level study programmes in all 3 cycles: Bachelor, Master and PhD. The Institute optimally qualifies students for a career start in the aviation industry sector by providing integrated study programmes where theoretical preparation blends with professional practical training. Study programmes in Aircraft Piloting, Air Traffic Control, Aviation Mechanics Engineering and Avionics are carried out. Apart from the university level studies, AGAI also provides professional training in aviation according to module programmes in the established Aviation Specialists‘ Qualification Improvement Centre.

 

Theoretical training is administered by three departments: Aviation Technologies, Aviation Mechanics and Avionics. Practical training is facilitated by the subdivisions: Flight Training Unit (with aviation technical maintenance service (145 organisation) and Flight simulator training laboratory), Air Traffic Control Training Unit and Aviation Engineering Practical Training Depot (147 organisation).

 

The institute not only prepares students for work in civil aviation but also works in cooperation with General Jonas Žemaitis Military Academy of Lithuania. Since 2007, students from the military academy may study aviation according to integrated study programmes.
