They were received by FTE’s CEO, Oscar Sordo, who provided the delegation with an overview of the school’s contributions to aviation training and the local economy since its establishment in Jerez, and the future plans of expansion for the school.

The Minister’s visit underscored the regional government’s commitment to supporting organisations that generate significant wealth and employment in Jerez by promoting industrial activities and value-added sectors like aerospace.
