Ryanair launches partnership with Aviomar Flight Academy

Ryanair, pilot training: Aviomar

Ryanair officially launched its major training partnership with Aviomar Flight Academy to deliver a Ryanair mentored programme in Rome.

This partnership will ensure the airline continues to attract highly trained professional pilots to support its growth across Europe.

The programme gives trainee pilots a structured path to achieve an exceptional training course and reach a standard where they are ready to join the Ryanair Boeing 737 type rating programme.

Pilots on the programme will be trained by Aviomar Flight Academy instructors, using Ryanair procedures, as they take their first steps towards becoming pilots for the airline.

Over the course of the next four to five years, up to 400 new pilots from across Europe will be recruited and trained by Aviomar Flight Academy, underlining its respected position in the pilot training market.

Newly trained pilots who commence their ab-initio training now will start their careers with Ryanair from early 2022.

Ryanair’s head of crew training, Senan O’Shea, said: “This new Ryanair-Aviomar Flight Academy programme will provide the airline with a steady pipeline of talented and professional pilots from around Europe to meet the needs of our growing network. Trainee pilots can look forward to unmatched opportunities flying with the world’s number one international airline.

“After careful consideration, we have chosen Aviomar Flight Academy as our Italian based pilot training partner due to their continuous high standards in initial flight training and APS MCC.

“We are pleased to lend our operational expertise to Aviomar Flight Academy, especially in the provision of what will be an outstanding Ryanair mentored programme. This combination will be the best possible preparation for an airline career with Ryanair.”

The airline said this training programme is its only mentored pilot programme in southern Europe, and this partnership highlights our commitment to supporting, developing and recruiting pilots for current and future positions.
