Learning to fly

Flight. Humankind's first dream, to soar up in the air like the birds, in a unique sensation of freedom. Unfortunately, humans don't have wings, but we can still fly. To do it, we must first learn with the best.


AEROTEC, the widest network of Aeronautical Training Centres in Europe, is a center of aeronautical training recognized by the European Rule JAR-FCL. The school's aim is to prepare future professional pilots competitive in the area, both nationwide and worldwide, with the basic principle of providing top-quality education. In order to achieve this goal, AEROTEC promotes three basic parameters: Equipment, Fleet and Human Resources.

AEROTEC was founded and set up by professionals of aeronautical teaching. It started to run its activity in 1993 in Madrid – Cuatro Vientos, where our central head office is located. Several bases were subsequently opened in Palma de Mallorca (1995), Sevilla(1995), Santa Cruz de Tenerife (1996) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (2001).

The school has always kept its commitment on the aeronautical training for professionals. AEROTEC was the first flight school in Spain that was specifically accredited for the training of Commercial Pilots (CLP), without needing to hold the Private Pilot Licence (PPL). AEROTEC holds the FTO certification (Flight Training Organization) from the day the European Rule JAR (26/06/2000) came into force.

AEROTEC is member of the most prestigious national and international professional associations, e.g. the Asociación de Escuelas de Formación Aeronáutica (AEFA) and the European Association of Airline Pilots Schools (EAAPS), where quality accreditations, professionalism and continuity in the market are required in order to become a member. We also keep agreements with these associations aiming at ensuring that we provide the training standards.

The main responsible of the school's quality training is its staff, without whom all the material and operational means of the most advanced technology owned would be useless in order to provide students with the required levels of training.

For this purpose, AEROTEC draws, exclusively, on active professionals of their respective specific fields, to whom the Spanish Aeronautical Authorities and European Aeronautical Authorities (Joint Aviation Authorities, J.A.A), constantly request their contribution as consultants of the many rules to be enacted.

Most of the theory instructors have received several appreciations for their curriculum and experience on behalf of the State of Spain and the European Union. The qualifications of these teachers go from Airlines Pilots, up to Air traffic controllers, Engineers, Medical Doctors, Lawyers, Meteorologists, etc. All of them count on professional experience in Aeronautical Training.

The flight and simulator instructors who are part of the staff of AEROTEC are pilots of the most exquisite qualifications for the modular training they are responsible for.

The minimum hours of flight in order to give lessons is of 200 hours in single-engine aeroplanes and a total of 500 hours in twin-engine aeroplanes. 80 % of the instructors who train the students of AEROTEC at least double that minimum of required hours. A 90 % of the instructors of advanced levels and examiners have developed or are developing their profession in the most prestigious air carriers that operate in Spain.
