EASA Flight Instructor Positions (FI)

As FTEJerez continues to grow through new airline partnerships and record cadet intakes, we are looking to recruit qualified Flight Instructors with all roles permanent and based at our aviation campus in Jerez, south west Spain. Training student pilots for a number of the world’s major airlines, the School works 50 weeks/year, 7 days/week and operates in some of the best flying weather in Europe.



As one of our flying instructors, you will fly 5 days/week and your working day will be restricted to 8 hours. Regardless of previous experience, the majority of our instructors join at the basic level but, for those suitably experienced, progression to IRI and CRI can be very quick. Flying hours come quickly in this environment and for those wishing to progress to airlines, FTEJerez will assist instructors in their career move where possible, once they have completed 2 years at FTEJerez.

The working environment at the School is excellent and living in Andalucia is a cultural and gastronomic experience which is well recommended!

  • Real career progression opportunities within the company with support where required to upgrade to IRI and Multi-engine CRI
  • Fulltime positions.
  • Relocation assistance.

  • High quality of life in, not only one of Europe’s most beautiful locations, with a wonderful climate, but also with one of the lowest costs of living.
