About Us

The pilot’s profession is constantly evolving. As it does, the requirements of a pilot are changing, too. And, in response to this, the training a pilot receives is also taking on a new character, becoming increasingly independent, flexible, mobile, and digital.

It is to meet these new and changing needs that we have created the European Flight Academy, which unites all the flying schools of the Lufthansa Group under a single roof. With our innovative training concepts and our interdisciplinary approach, we combine all the various strengths of our group member companies.

In doing so, we strive to give all our trainees the best possible prospects for a career as a pilot at one of our member airlines. And, on a broader note, we aim to ensure that the European Flight Academy plays a major role in the further development of the pilot’s profile and profession.
