FTEJerez has been chosen by Barcelona-based Volotea to train the airline's cadet pilots. This agreement follows on the partnership between Volotea and FTEJerez that was concluded in October 2012 in which the Jerez-based airline pilot training academy was chosen to periodically provide the airline with a number of FTEJerez graduates for employment with the company. The first group of six self-sponsored cadet pilots will commence their training in Jerez in October 2014. The young cadet pilots and future Volotea captains will be jointly selected by FTEJerez and Volotea and should be ready to commence their role as fully qualified Volotea Second Officers around April 2016.
