LAT trains Lufthansa pilots on the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) program and Multi-Pilot License (MPL) program. You arrive in Goodyear after your theory course and have your first flights with us at LAT. After about 80 hours’ flying time in the aircraft and in the simulator as well as extensive first class training with a well trained instructor, you are ready for the next step and you can move on to your instrument and multi-engine or jet training.

The home base for student training is the Phoenix Goodyear Airport (GYR), located southwest of Phoenix, Arizona. With over 350 days of visual flying conditions this is the perfect place to start a pilot career.
A few miles south of Goodyear Airport, Lufthansa Aviation Training owns a private airport called Mobile Airport. Mobile is equipped with an Instrument Landing System (ILS) and is used for both visual and instrument training.
Besides these two airports, there are approximately 25 training airports within 100 nautical miles of Phoenix-Goodyear Airport.

OUR NUMBER ONE GOAL.
We are very proud of our safety system and record. Our safety management system (SMS) has been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Lufthansa Aviation Training was the first flight school to receive such a certification and is still one of only a few schools to hold it.
SMS emphasizes safety management as a fundamental business practice and is all about safety decision-making.
