Aer Lingus has once again chosen FTEJerez as its selected flight training school for the airline's 2016 Cadet Pilot Training Programme. The Aer Lingus Cadet Pilot Training Programme was recommenced in 2012, after a gap of 11 years. Since 2012 nearly 50 cadets have trained at FTEJerez through the Aer Lingus programme. Most have now completed their training and are operating as first officers on the Irish flag-carrier's Airbus A320 fleet. Previously, Aer Lingus has part funded this training. This year, however, Aer Lingus has announced that the airline will be funding the entire cost of the training programme for each successful candidate.
