FTE’s 31st air traffic control course has commenced training this week with a truly international intake. A total of 6 Dutch students have arrived from the Royal Netherlands Air Force, joined by a further 6 Spanish self-sponsored students. In addition, FTEJerez has welcomed the first Irish student to be trained for FTE’s new customer, Ireland West Airport. The candidate was selected last month with the assistance of FTE’s assessment team, that conducted the FEAST testing in Ireland. He will now commence 7 weeks of Basic ATC Training, followed by a further 18 weeks of Tower and Approach training.
Coincidentally, this course has commenced on the International Day of the Air Traffic Controller and during the month in which FTEJerez is celebrating 10 years of ATC training. We wish the new students all the best during their time at FTEJerez and a very successful career as Air Traffic Controllers.
