A major new training partnership with Polish-based international flight school Bartolini Air has been launched by Ryanair to deliver a Ryanair/Bartolini Air mentored pilot training programme.
The airline says the partnership, which involves an 18-month intensive training programme, will ensure Ryanair continues to attract highly-trained professional pilots to support its continued growth across Europe.
It gives trainee pilots a structured path to achieve their pilot licences and reach a standard where they are ready to join the Ryanair Boeing B737 type-rating programme.
Trainee pilots on the programme – more than 300 over the next four years – recruited by Bartolini Air in Lodz and Olsztyn-Mazury Airports will be trained by Bartolini Air instructors using Ryanair procedures as they take their first steps.
Ryanair director of flight operations Neal McMahon said: “This new venture with Bartolini Air, Ryanair's only mentored pilot programme in Central and Eastern Europe, highlights our commitment to support, develop and recruit pilots from the region."
Bartolini Air founder and president Bartłomiej Walas added: “Participants in the programme will train on a fleet of modern single- and twin-engine piston planes, simulators and in a professional environment which will ready them for an exciting and fulfilling career.”
