New training programs, new services, new legal requirements, current affairs, and background information – here journalists and other interested parties will find the latest news from around the world of the Lufthansa Aviation Training Group.
On October 31 and November 1, 2017, the spotlight at Germany’s largest hotel, the Estrel Berlin, will be squarely on cockpit and cabin crew training. This is because the European Airline Training Symposium (EATS) is being held here on these two days – considered one of the industry’s most important events focused on training at airlines for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Leading training providers will present their latest vocational and advanced training offers for cockpit and cabin personnel to the international audience. At the EATS Exhibition, which will held parallel to the conference, visitors can learn about the latest training solutions available on the market from over 50 exhibitors.
At the EATS 2016, we exhibited for the first time as Lufthansa Aviation Training. Our motto for the exhibition was “The Next Level of Aviation Training.” And at this year’s EATS, we will show you how we plan to live up to this slogan with specific content and services. A particular focus at our booth will be on our flight school’s new concept, our expanded range of simulators at the Munich and Essen locations, as well as our CSeries Training at the Zurich location, among other topics. Visit us at Booth 117 to find out how your airline can benefit from our expertise.
Come to Berlin for the EATS 2017. We look forward to speaking with you there.

The conditions for future commercial pilots become more attractive: For its starter product, Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) has reduced the fees for the two-year training to 80,000 euros and offers the suitability test free of charge until the end of this year.
This year, LAT has pooled its flight training schools under the brand European Flight Academy (EFA) and trains future pilots in Germany, Switzerland and the USA – for both cockpit positions within Lufthansa Group Airlines as well as other airlines. Having passed both the basic skills assessment positively as well as the Lufthansa Group qualification are the prerequisites for becoming a pilot flying for a Lufthansa Group Airline. Until the end of this year, no charges apply for the statutory aptitude test. Usually, this test costs 357 euros. The two-year training also becomes less expensive: Instead of 100,000 euros, future pilots now invest 80,000 euros for their training for the time being. This payment is due at a later stage: The amount of training costs is deferred and will be paid in installments to the future employer. Future pilots can complete and finish their 24-months-long training in Europe and North America with the so-called Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL). It is a recognized qualification that does not require any preliminary decision about a specific airline to continue the individual career path as a pilot with. There is an increasing demand for working up in the air: “We have noticed steadily growing demand for pilots“, said Rainer Hiltebrand, CEO of Lufthansa Aviation Training.

Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) and TUIfly have agreed to continue their 18-year-long partnership until 2020 at least. Therefore, TUIfly will continue to train its pilots on the 737 NG simulator at LAT in Berlin.
Each year, pilots of the holiday carrier spend 4,000 hours in the LAT flight simulators. The training puts special emphasis on simulating exceptional aircraft scenarios and also allows the pilots to complete the so-called “type-rating” to obtain the valid type-rating certification for B737 aircraft after having become familiar with that aircraft type.
Ulrich Lindner, LAT Head of Commercial, is pleased about the contract extension: “TUIfly is one of our biggest and most important clients in Berlin. By extending our contract, we continue our trusting and good cooperation and further strengthen Berlin as our training location.”
“The overall package of LAT is tailor-made for TUIfly. From the booking of capacities to the professional training facilities for briefing and debriefing and the state-of-the art B737 NG Full Motion simulator. LAT’s location in Berlin offers optimal conditions to train our cockpit crew”, states Thomas Neupert, Head of Training TUIfly.
