Continuing with good cooperation with the industry, representatives of Croatia Airlines held a meeting with undergraduate students (commercial pilot module) on Wednesday June 8 at the Department of Aeronautics.

Grgec explained the need for educated pilots at the company, possibilities for professional development, and relayed his observations on pilot’s market worldwide. Capt. Hubak and f/o Klasić told their stories and personal experience on their journey from graduated aeronautical students to airline pilots. Very interested part of the meeting was capt. Grgec’s explanation of future training plans and possibilities of employment within the company.  Students expressed their interest by attending the lecture in large number and by asking a lot of proficient and well structurated questions. We hope that this kind of gathering will continue in the future.
