Flight Training Europe (FTEJerez) has been selected by easyJet to provide top-end pilot graduates to be the future First Officers and Captains of the airline.

To start the new partnership, 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 campus during March 2016.

Brian Tyrell, easyJet's Head of Flight Operations said: "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."
