Iberia funds half the cost of new cadet programme with FTEJerez


+VIDEO Spain’s national airline, Iberia, has announced a new cadet pilot programme, Iberia Cadets, with Approved Training Organisation FTEJerez.

Iberia Cadets will follow an integrated route to an EASA ATPL. Iberia and FTEJerez will select candidates for the training programme through a rigorous selection process.

In addition, Iberia will fund 50% of the programme’s fees, interest free, in an effort to promote the job of an airline pilot.


Once cadets have completed training at FTEJerez, they will be given the opportunity to join the one of the airlines of the Iberia Group as a first officer and start to repay Iberia’s student loan.

Oscar Sordo, FTE CEO, said, “We are extremely proud of the fact that Iberia continues to entrust us with the training of their future generation of pilots.

“This is definitely a recognition of our track record in the industry and further strengthens the relationship we have with Iberia since we started working together back in 2017.”

Selection of the cadets will take place during the next three months, with the first batch of selected candidates joining FTE’s training programme in November.
