TURN YOUR DREAM INTO YOUR JOB

For many, the job of a pilot is the ultimate dream. And they are not wrong – who else can say that their job is 39,000 feet above the clouds, who else can visit the world’s most fascinating places and cultures as part of their job, and who else bears such great responsibility for people and technology?

Yet, you still might have questions, doubts as to whether and how this dream can become reality at all.

We have redesigned our flight school concept, focusing on the following criteria: quality, training success, sustainability and job prospects. 

Welcome to the European Flight Academy

Becoming a pilot at the European Flight Academy

The pilot training of Lufthansa Group

The quality of the training is what is most important to us. When you have completed the roughly two-year-long pilot training – which sets high standards in theory, practice, and learning environment – you will be able to meet the high expectations for and demands of a pilot and you will have the best chances at being placed into a cockpit with one of the various airlines of Lufthansa Group or another airline. 

 

In what ways will you experience the quality of the training? 

 

The theoretical and practical flight instructors have been hand-selected, can draw on a plethora of experience, and will impart to you the training contents in a comprehensive manner that is oriented by practical relevance. Our close ties to airline operations ensure that your training is geared toward the requirements of your future cockpit job.

Obtaining the ATP license certified by EASA at the European Flight Academy means that a great number of career-entry opportunities within Lufthansa Group and outside it will be open to you. Almost every European airline requires this license and the corresponding training preceding it.

The European Flight Academy’s alumni will be given priority consideration when it comes to filling new cockpit jobs with Lufthansa Group; because of the high quality of the training they have completed they are also very sought-after outside Lufthansa Group.

We will be by your side also after your training and will support you as best we can with our campus concept in placing you in a cockpit job.

The demanding selection process that our applicants must pass ensures the highest possible rate of success in the training. This can serve as reassurance for you that you will be able to fully live up to the high demands of your future pilot life.

Right from the start, our future pilots will also be trained on the topic of “sustainable flying”. Additionally, the whole training will be carbon-neutral through a combination of CO2 avoidance and carbon offset. In the medium term, CO2 emissions will be reduced even further through other technical and procedural adjustments.

Within the framework of our collaboration with Bremen City University of Applied Sciences we are now able to offer advantages for other courses of study besides the non-dual ILST study program. The pilot training at the European Flight Academy can be recognized in selected courses of study and 20% to 25% of the credits to be collected can be credited. This means that, after you successfully completed your training, you can complete a course of study in order to broaden your job prospects beyond those in the cockpit. Further information is available on the website of Bremen City University of Applied Sciences.
