24 months from walking to flying: On 22nd January 2010 anyone interested in training as a pilot can visit Terminal Tango at Hamburg Airport to find out more about the Air Berlin Flightschool. The event starts at 7 pm. Following a presentation and information about the structure of the course at Air Berlin, Ralf Nagel, Head of Training at the Air Berlin Group, and his team will be available to answer questions. Admission is free and no prior registration is required.
The Air Berlin Flightschool is offering two courses for 15 students each in 2010. The first course starts on 22nd February, the second one on 28th June 2010. Another two courses are planned for both 2011 and 2012, but the exact start dates have not yet been announced. Applicants will find further information about Air Berlin’s pilot training course and an online application form at www.airberlin-flightschool.com.
In February 2009 the Air Berlin Flightschool was the first pilot school in Germany to obtain approval from the German Federal Aviation Office for the new international MPL (Multi-Crew Pilot Licence) training standard. The MPL is tailored to the requirements of modern airlines. Trainees are prepared for working in the cockpit of a modern airliner from the outset. This means that special attention is paid to teamwork and to threat and error management in a multi-crew cockpit.
