THE BEST WAY TO BECOME A PILOT

Obtaining a pilot's license without prior knowledge

QUALIFICATIONS FOR A COCKPIT JOB WITHIN THE LUFTHANSA GROUP AND OUTSIDE OF IT

The European Flight Academy, the Lufthansa Group’s flight school, stands for the highest standards in pilot training. We support you ab initio i. e. from the very beginning, with no prior knowledge required on your part – on your way of roughly two years to your professional pilot’s license. With this license you will be qualified, in general, for a job in a cockpit of the Lufthansa Group airlines as well as of airlines outside the Group.

The process

In the Cockpit soon

If you meet the fundamental requirements, you can sign up for the acquisition of the DLR test certificate. If you have successfully passed the DLR test, you can officially apply at the European Flight Academy with the certificate. After your application, you will be invited to the subsequent selection process, the Lufthansa Group assessment center. Afterwards you will know yourself a lot better – and successful applicants will be able to start their training at the European Flight Academy after the successfully completed medical fitness examination. After twelve months of theoretical instructions you will already be taking your seat in a cockpit for the first flight phase during which you navigate visually. And our student pilots in Switzerland will be able to enter the cockpit for the first time in the fourth month of training.

Here is your first step on the way to a career as a pilot, the registration for the DLR test:
