Apparently, in view of the precarious Corona situation, the AUA parent company is considering closing the flight school in Bremen - that would destroy the dream of around 700 budding young pilots.
The board of directors around Lufthansa boss Carsten Spohr is currently advising on further drastic austerity measures. Above all, the end of the traditional Bremen flight school is in the room. The crane airline currently has little hope of an early recovery in air traffic and is steadily reducing its fleet capacity. This means that fewer staff will be required in the future - and certainly not new pilots.
There is currently a training freeze for the current student body in Bremen. This came into play immediately after the corona situation escalated. Even the management of the educational institution lacks any optimism. On the contrary: “Many of you are still at the beginning of your career path. We would therefore like to encourage you to reorient yourself professionally ”, it says in an internal circular published by the news magazine buten un inside is present.
Is that supposed to be it now? At least the current flight students do not want to give up yet and publish an emotional video by asking the Lufthansa executive suite for your indulgence again. The dream of flying is too big. But what it looks like changes with a crash.
