Flight Training Europe (FTEJerez) has been selected by easyJet to provide pilot graduates to be First Officers and ultimately Captains at the airline.
easyJet plans to assess and recruit current FTEJerez students/graduate pilots with a view to offering a number of flying opportunities as easyJet pilots this coming winter. The first round of pilot selection will take place at the FTEJerez, Southern Spain campus during March 2016.
Other FTEJerez partner airlines include Air Astana, Aer Lingus, British Airways, BA CityFlyer, CityJet, Emirates, Flybe, Middle East Airlines and Qatar Airways and more.
Brian Tyrell, easyJet’s head of flight operations commented, “We are excited to be partnering with FTEJerez and look forward to meeting and assessing a number of the students and graduate pilots in March. We see this commitment with FTEJerez as an integral part of our long-term strategy to turn Europe Orange as we increase our network, our crew bases and training facilities within mainland Europe”.
