Recruitment Process
last update
Application Stop: No new applications till JAN 2015. All assesment-slots for 2015 already filled. Waitinglist for start of class for FQ positive students is in progress. Due to closure of LFT (Lufthansa-Flight-Training Bremen) 2015 - and probably till 2017 - waiting time to start the assessment is increasing. Assessment successors have a vague estimate of training to start maybe 2016/17 (but under different circumstances then) 10/Nov/14
