COVID-19 Update

Due to the recent developments and the global expansion of COVID-19, we as an educational institution would like to announce that teaching will continue without interruptions. Until the state government has given the all-clear, we will conduct the legally required classroom instruction via video conference (ZOOM). All scheduled dates remain unchanged. We have already received the unbureaucratic approval for this from the Civil Aviation Authority (LBA).

Our Courses

Aeroplanes

We offer the ATPL-A, CPL-A, IR, CB-IR/EIR and also PPL/LAPL courses.

Helicopter

This area is very special to us and we offer the ATPL-H/IR, ATPL-H/VFR, IR as well as the PPL/LAPL courses.

I started February 2014 – 12 months later the ATPL Theory was in the bag! Cranfield Aviation was completely the right choice for me. The optimal support and the opportunity to study alongside working is what makes the distance learning course so utterly enticing.

Our Story

The Cranfield Aviation success story begins in the United Kingdom. The British company Cranfield Aviation Training School was founded at Cranfield Airport in the neighbourhood of the renowned Cranfield University in 2000 and quickly developed itself as a global player in the aviation industry. Due to the strong intake of European students, the move to strategically located Luton took place in 2008, which is perfectly connected to London and benefits from the proximity to several commercial airports. Due to the big demand from German-speaking countries, the decision was made to establish an independent training organisation in Germany. Cranfield Aviation Training School (Deutschland) GmbH was founded in the city of Dortmund at the Technologiezentrum, near to the university and will continue to offer EASA training here after BREXIT, regardless of the UK company.
