Tecnam Congratulates Bartolini Air on Ryanair Partnership
Polish-based international flight school Bartolini Air, and Europe’s top airline, Ryanair, have formed a new partnership to deliver a comprehensive Mentored Pilot Training Program.
This new training partnership is a wonderful achievement for Bartolini Air, according to another of their partners, Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam, whose diverse range of models make up Bartolini Air’s fleet. There are currently thirteen Tecnams, including three P2002JF low-wing single-engine aircraft, six P2008JC single-engine high-wing aircraft, three P2006T twin-engine aircraft and one P2010 single-engine, high-wing. All are fitted with Garmin glass cockpits and the latest technology avionics. The high quality and low operational costs of the Tecnam fleet have most likely been a contributing factor to Bartolini Air’s success.
Paolo Pascale, Tecnam CEO, believes that Bartolini Air is the perfect choice for this program. “Not only do they have an impressive track record in training top-class pilots to the highest standards,” he says, “but they also have the ideal fleet of aircraft to ensure their 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 them on this great achievement.”
Walter Da Costa, Tecnam Global Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The professionalism shown by Bartolini Air, as well as their commitment towards providing an outstanding level of service, has caused them to be recognised by Ryanair, Europe’s leading airline. That is an honour indeed.”
Bartłomiej Walas, Founder and President of Bartolini Air, said: “We’ve trained over 1500 pilots from 56 countries and many of them are already working at Ryanair, Europe’s largest airline group. Under the Ryanair Mentored Programme, our trainee pilots will be instructed by Bartolini’s instructors using Ryanair SOPS. Participants of the program will train on a fleet of modern single- and twin-engine Tecnam aircraft, simulators and 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.”
