The accident happened adjacent to the runway of the Moron de la Frontera air base at around 2 p.m. (1200 GMT), a ministry statement said, and it was not yet clear what caused the crash.
The 30-year-old pilot was from Madrid and had logged 600 hours of experience flying the combat jet.
Eurofighters are built by British defence company BAE Systems, European aerospace group Airbus and Italy's Finmeccanica.
A Saudi national died in a Eurofighter crash in 2010, also at the Moron base, just after taking off during a training flight with a Spanish co-pilot, who was injured.
Makers of the Eurofighter have faced tough competition for overseas jet orders from manufacturers of rival models such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Saab, while also facing shrinking defence budgets in the United States and Europe.Last Mod: 09 Haziran 2014, 22:50
