Bartolini Air

Bartolini Air are the largest pilot training centre in Central Europe. We specialize in basic professional training – most students join us with zero experience and finish with an EASA frozen ATPL, which enables them to become First Officers in European airlines. Thanks to our high standards, Bartolini Air is the choice of hundreds of student pilots to provide them with high-quality airline pilot training. On top of regular training towards a frozen ATPL, we run a mentored airline pilot program. Thanks to our location in Poland, we can deliver top quality training in very modern aircraft at very reasonable prices.

Professional Approach

We focus on solid practical knowledge and quality rather than quantity. From the very first day in a single-engine piston aircraft, we teach pilots a professional airline approach – our students follow Standard Operating Procedures and checklists. Everything is designed to meet the ultimate goal – make every graduate ready for the right seat of a transport category aircraft.

Modern FleetBartolini Air

We use a fleet of new and modern Tecnam aircraft (maximum five years old), all equipped with an electronic flight instrument system, which from day one helps our students become accustomed to modern avionics used in large jets. For the final Jet Orientation and Multi-Crew Cooperation courses, we use simulators based on the Airbus A320 (from summer 2021, this will also include the Boeing 737).

Passion and Competence

We started as a tiny flight school in 2006. We are now the largest aviation training organisation in this part of Europe. It wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t love what we are doing and if we weren’t good at it. But we want to keep learning and getting even better – at flying, at instructing and at running the organisation and the training process for our students.

Training Options

Bartolini Air provides many training solutions from Integrated Ab-Initio to Modular PPL, ATPL theory, Night Rating, AUPRT, Combined MEP/CPL, MEIR and MCC. Over the past 14 years, Bartolini Air has established a great reputation for preparing young pilots for an airline career. We currently offer an airline mentored pilot training programme – more details can be found on our website.
