In 2014 the Lithuanian Border Guard requested to have a 'Train the Trainer' course for their senior pilot, Mr Verbickas. Griffon Hoverwork's Chief Pilot conducted the training in Lithuania and awarded Mr Verbickas with a Type Instructor certificate after successful completion of the training. The aim of the training was to assess and train a pilot of the Lithuanian Border Guard to become an accredited Pilot Instructor for the 2000TD hovercraft.
As a result of the 'Train the Trainer' course Mr Verbickas has trained a further 4 pilots. In June 2015 the pilots were ready for their type rating exam; Griffon Hoverwork's Chief Pilot returned to Lithuania to conduct the exams and awarded the four new pilots with Type ratings on the Griffon Hoverwork 2000TD MK11.
