Polish flight school Bartolini Air has partnered with Ryanair to deliver a comprehensive mentored pilot training programme.

The Bartolini Air fleet comprises thirteen Tecnam aircraft, of which there are three P2006T twin engine aircraft, three P2002JF low-wing single engine aircraft, six P2008JC single engine high-wing aircraft and one single engine, high-wing P2010. All are fitted with Garmin glass cockpits and the latest technology avionics.

Founder and president Bartłomiej Walas says: “We've trained over 1,500 pilots from 56 countries and many of them are already working at Ryanair. Under this mentored programme, our trainee pilots will be instructed by Bartolini's instructors using Ryanair SOPS. Participants will train on a fleet of modern single and twin engine Tecnam aircraft and simulators in a professional environment, which will ready them for an exciting and fulfilling career with our partner airline, Ryanair. We look forward to working with both Ryanair and Tecnam for many years to come.”

Tecnam CEO Paolo Pascale believes that Bartolini Air is the perfect choice for this programme, thanks in part to the high quality and low operational costs of its fleet. “Not only does Bartolini have an impressive track record in training top-class pilots to the highest standards,” he says, “but it also has the ideal fleet of aircraft to ensure its future pilots are trained on the best possible aircraft. Our own partnership with Bartolini Air has been very successful from the beginning and we are confident that it will continue to grow in the future. We at Tecnam congratulate it on this great achievement.”

Tecnam global sales and marketing director Walter Da Costa adds: “The professionalism shown by Bartolini Air, as well as its commitment towards providing an outstanding level of service, has caused it to be recognised by Ryanair, Europe's leading airline. That is an honour indeed.”
