Bartolini Air and 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.
Ryanair offers unparalleled career opportunities for new pilots, with:
