The dream of flying is as old as humanity itself.

Take off into your future now by becoming a pilot trainee so that your possibilities may become as limitless as the skies.

Your Path into the Cockpit

You want to become a pilot? Make your dream come true at the European Flight Academy (EFA), the flight training school of the Lufthansa Group, with several locations in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

The European Flight Academy, a brand of Lufthansa Aviation Training GmbH, provides the next generation of pilots for the entire Lufthansa Group.

Are you fit for the flight deck?

Airline pilots have to come up to some very high standards. To be able to embark on your pilot training, you’ll need to first meet some personal qualification criteria and secondly pass a series of assessments on your aptitude for the job, your medical fitness to fly and your suitability for service within the Lufthansa Group.

An investment in your future

There’s no denying it: training to become an airline pilot involves a substantial investment. The Lufthansa Group offers interested trainees a deferment plan for the duration of the training up until employment in the cockpit of a Lufthansa Group airline.
In this case, the fees are then deducted from your wages upon employment.

“Getting to know various cultures and people – that’s a big appeal of this job.”

“I think women are just as capable of doing it as men.”

“And I’d do it all again – go through it all again – just to make my way to this flight school again.”
