LIVE THE DREAM:
BECOME A PILOT

CURRENT SITUATION

The serious, dynamically changing developments and the unclear long-term effects of the corona pandemic have led us to put preventive measures in place at our pilot school and all other training facilities. We have thus decided to place our training activities on hold until at least April 30th.

 

The selection procedure for future student pilots at EFA has also been placed on hold. The Basic Qualification ("Berufsgrunduntersuchung") and Group Qualification will also not take place until at least April 30th. It is still possible to apply to our academy. Please expect delays in the entire process of selection, training and job placement.

 

We continue to monitor and evaluate the overall health, business and social situation to be able to adapt our measures at any time. Please do get in touch with us via email or on the hotline if you have any questions. We thank you for your understanding in this difficult situation. Stay healthy!

Pilot training at Austrian Airlines

EVER THOUGHT ABOUT BECOMING A PILOT?

Becoming a pilot is a dream career for many people. Don’t let it remain a dream! Austrian Airlines is looking for pilots. But how do you get into the cockpit of an Austrian Airlines aircraft? Via European Flight Academy, the pilot school of the Lufthansa Group. European Flight Academy trains pilots for Austrian Airlines and all other airlines of the Lufthansa Group.

Austria’s largest airline awaits you with its over 13 million passengers every year and 130 destinations. As a member of Lufthansa Group, Austrian at present has approx. 7,000 employees from over 60 countries. There can hardly be a more beautiful workplace than in a cockpit. You spend much of your day high above the clouds and generally have a sunny day in the office – even if it’s raining, stormy or snowy outside.
