Group Qualification? The group we are referring to is the Lufthansa Group. While the basic qualification assesses whether you are suited to a career as a pilot, the next step focuses on whether you meet the requirements of the Lufthansa Group Airlines in terms of behavior, teamwork and personality.
The group qualification (GQ) for the ATPL program takes 1 day. See the graph below for the steps involved. An exercise and a role-playing session show us, for example, how you act in situations typical to a cockpit – both on your own and in a team. It focuses on what you can do already but also how quickly you learn new skills. We are interested in your hand-eye coordination and other motor skills as well as how you deal with multiple stress factors.
In addition, your personality can shine in an interview. Here, we want to discover your social, leadership and communication skills, to name a few.
If you pass this second stage, only a small step remains between you and the cockpit of one the largest airline groups worldwide: the medical and drug screening.
