FTEJerez, in partnership with AvSoc, are looking to highlight and build on the strengths of the University of Leeds’ longstanding relationship with FTEJerez, providing a unique opportunity to experience a week of the inner workings and operation behind one of Europe’s leading flight training organisations.

The package for the winner will be an ‘FTExperience’, including one week full board accommodation at the FTECampus, return flights from the UK and airport pickup service. This will allow the successful applicant to experience first-hand the training environment that FTEJerez has to offer and allow interaction with different departments such as aircraft maintenance, flight ops and ground school among others.

The application process will open on Wednesday 13th April 2016 and will close on Sunday the 17th April at 12 pm. Submissions will be gender and student anonymous with applicants only detailing their University of Leeds student number to ensure no unfair bias. A decision on the winner of the competition is to be made by FTE’s senior staff. Contact the AvSoc for further details should you wish to submit an application.
