Our flight school in Switzerland stands for top quality pilot training and has been recognized as a vocational school (“Höhere Fachschule”) since 2012. We prepare you ab initio – from the beginning, without any prior training, and help you acquire your ATPL commercial pilot license in 20-22 monhts. You then receive a type rating for one of our entry aircraft types (A320, C-Series) and are ready for your first commercial flight.
In a Cockpit within Seven Weeks
You have nothing to lose: applying to Edelweiss costs you nothing and does not enter you into any obligations. Should you meet the basic requirements, you are admitted to our selection procedure. Following this, you will discover a lot about yourself – successful applicants can then begin training at European Flight Academy, the pilot school of the Lufthansa Group. After seven weeks completing the first theory phase, you will step into the cockpit of one of our training aircraft in Grenchen, Switzerland. You’ll later complete comprehensive flight training at our facility in Vero Beach, Florida.
