You have surely asked yourself what the pilot training at Lufthansa costs and how you can finance it? Training to turn your dream job into reality is an investment in your own future. Through an attractive deferment plan and several funding opportunities, it is a dream you can more easily afford.
The Lufthansa Group Supports You
Financially On Your Side
The Lufthansa Group is prepared to take on a majority of the cost of training. Trainees need only make a certain co-payment, which is slightly different depending on the desired training programm. This co-payment can be financed via a deferment model.
Repayment Once You Begin Your Career
The Deferment Plan
In the Lufthansa Group’s deferment model, you do not need to pay the fees when you begin training, but rather pay once you successfully graduate and join Lufthansa – where it will be deducted from your monthly wages in installments.
You apply for pilot training at European Flight Academy. After your training (plus type rating, in the case of MPL) is complete, you apply to Lufthansa seeking employment.
Should you choose a deferment option, European Flight Academy will let you defer paying the fees for the duration of your training.
Employment and Repayment
If you receive a position at Lufthansa once you have successfully completed your training, you begin paying the fee in installments, which are deducted from your monthly wages.
Just in Case
Should you not receive a position within five years after graduation, other arrangements for repaying the fee can be made in agreement with European Flight Academy.
