Flight Training Europe (FTEJerez) has tied up with TAP Air Portugal, the country’s national carrier, to offer FTE graduates the opportunity to be selected as First Officers for the airline.

Potential candidates identified by FTEJerez who, having completed their EASA ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence) training meet the criteria set by TAP Air Portugal. They will be invited for assessment by TAP in Lisbon.

Oscar Sordo, CEO at FTEJerez, said, “FTEJerez is naturally delighted with the trust TAP Air Portugal is placing in the academy to supply them with high-quality cadet pilots and is also fitting recognition of the high standard of training at FTEJerez.”

TAP Air Portugal’s Chief Operating Officer, Ramiro Jose Oliveira, said‚ “At TAP Air Portugal we believe that the highest standard of ab initio flight training is crucial in developing a pilot for the demands of airline operations.”

TAP Air Portugal was established in 1945 with two Dakota DC-3 aircraft. Its first international flight was in 1946 from Lisbon to the Spanish capital, Madrid. Today, TAP Air Portugal has a fleet of 93 aircraft operating an average of 3,000 flights a week to 90 destinations in 36 countries.
