The first cadets should start their training in 2019 and after they will complete the ATPL training, they are going to start the career as Air Europa Express first officers.
FTEJerez CEO, Oscar Sordo, comments on the cooperation: “We are extremely proud of Air Europa Express’ decision to entrust FTEJerez with the training of the airline’s next generation first officers and future captains. We also view the airline’s choice of FTEJerez as fitting recognition of our track record in the pilot training industry and the milestones we have achieved over the past three decades. In the months and years to come, we look forward to build on the trust and existing good relationship between Air Europa Express and FTEJerez.”
Toni Gimeno, CEO of Air Europa Express, adds: “We have recently been selected as the most efficient regional airline in Europe and this recognition has only been possible because we always select the best professional for each division of the company. This is why we entrust the future of our pilots to FTEJerez, due to the excellent training they provide to every single one of their students.”
