It’s the second year in a row that this prestigious accolade is conferred on a pilot who completed most of his training at Bartolini Air. Gianluca is a role model for those who aspire to a career as an airline pilot but do not have the funds readily available and need to work hard for that. Gianluca was going to start his flight training in 2011 but due to health issues he could not do it in time as he failed his initial Class 1 medical examination. However it didn’t stop him from dreaming. It was not until 4 years later that he had obtained the Class 1 medical. Gianluca started his flight training with Bartolini Air in June 2015 and finished in March 2019. He completed all his skill tests with an overall grade of “outstanding”. Throughout his training Gianluca was exceptionally dedicated and focused. He helped other students and was respectful towards his instructors. Within 4 weeks of finishing his flight training he passed the cadet pilot assessment at Ryanair.
He is now a FO based in Kraków, Poland.
