Yep. I'm following their fb page and I can see that a lot of people were hired by Ryan.
I was just curious to know the placement % because obviously they don't say how many of the graduates are still at at home waiting for a call.

They are a very professional outfit and do exactly what they say they do. They offer training for the various ratings, they do not flatter your ego with promises.
Their reputation in the industry is pretty good but remember you are probably coming out with around the minimum hours so that is not an issue with the school. How you gain the first job is up to you. You are in competition with many other flight schools, some with prices for the same course of whole number multiples of the Bartolini cost.
Perfect: No. Value for Money: Very Good.

Hello everyone! I visited Bartolini Air flight school last week and all I can say is Iím impressed. I will be signing up for their 0-fATPL course, but Iíll have to wait until February of 2019 to start training as all available slot for 2018 are sold. During my short visit, I spoke to a representative from the school named Michał. Michał was very helpful and informative. He showed me around their facilities as well as showing the schools planes and telling me of the new planes the school had purchased and will receive at some point this year. If I learn any useful information about the school Iíll make sure to share!

Just curious - if you reserve a spot and paid the deposit, are you able to delay your training (to the next available date) without losing the deposit?

Hi guys ,
I have a start date for CPL ME IR training for April 2018. I am looking for a later date maybe for May or June or even later. If there is any one who is due to start in May or June or any time this summer and would like to start earlier , I am happy to swap my slot.

Hi I intend to secure a slot, they told me they had one in August 2018, can you secure a slot before filling all the requirements to stat training (I still need to pass my medical class 1, ICAO level 4 english, and psychometric tests) ?

Hi

If I can ask you, when did you secure your place for August intake? I thought that there was no place available until April 2019

Regards

Hi, i just started this week my PPL at Bartolini. I applied on September 17 for June and later a slot came in for April (0-fATPL Program).

Regarding to your question, do you mean the psychometric assessments of the medical class 1? If so, then don't worry too much about them... you'll see it's not that difficult and you just need a little of coordination.

I was told that before I can start my 0 to fATPL I have to do some psychometric assessments and a compass test. If I fail them I won't be accepted onto the course.
This will include, coordination, maths, verbal reasoning, a talk with the schools psychologist etc

I paid my deposit for August 2018. I will be starting on the 13th. They told me that i need to go over beforehand to do the Psychometric exams before i can actually get into the 0-fATPL course. So i will be going over in June to do these tests.

Mmh... nope maybe that's for people who at the beginning of the theory course haven't got the medical 1... of course you need the medical when you want to start the practical part (3-4 weeks after starting PPL lectures) but don't worry, they don't do anything of what you described. As I said, maybe if you haven't got the medical at the arrival at the school.

It is possible that they do that before starting the practical part, but I haven't heard aything about it. To be safe, if you have a medical 1 (or 2 if you aim only for PPL) there's nothing to worry about.

I arrived in Poland 2 days before PPL lectures began. Did nothing before (only filled some form via email showing the medical etc).

First day there's a short introduction of the school, the e-learning system, etc and after that you start with a subject (generally Air Law)... then the 2 weeks of lectures begin.
