Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL)

In contrast to the ATPL training course, the Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL) training places a larger focus on preparing you for working in a 2-person cockpit from the beginning of the course onward. The topics covered are thus handled slightly different, the order of the training modules is thus slightly different and the equipment used is different. The goal of the training and the qualifications you receive are identical, though. Receiving a Type Rating for a Lufthansa Group aircraft is an integral part of the overall training. Upon completion, you will have the license and permissions to be “cleared for takeoff”.

Within the Lufthansa Group, the MPL license allows you to join Lufthansa itself, Lufthansa CityLine or Austrian Airlines.
