THE TRAINING PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AT THE FOLLOWING PILOT SCHOOLS

Trener Flight Academy in Hungary

TEAMWORK - With our integrated training scheme, our aim is not only to provide a training, which fulfils the EASA requirements, but to train our cadets to become real team players. They must support their fellow cadets at all times, and move towards their goals together. In a multi pilot environment, – like an airline operation – this ability will be huge asset.

EXPERIENCE - We build on the experience, gathered through pilot trainings in Nyiregyhaza since 1968. Our instructors are Tréner graduates to make sure that the gathered knowledge and our high standards are passed on. Support from our senior instructors will guarantee the professionalism to our junior instructors.

QUALITY - As you probably see by now, our main goal is to provide quality. Next to investment in aircrafts and equipment, we are continuously enhancing our training structure. We involve active airline pilots in the creation of the syllabus. Furthermore, they will be involved with progress checks, theoretical trainings, and Multi Crew Cooperation Trainings.

For specific requirements to obtain EASA Class 1 Medical certificate, please visit this link.

Aircraft cockpit and controls are designed on the assumption that the aircrew controlling the aircraft is between 158 cm and 191 cm in height (EASA CS 25.777).
Therefore and in view of our safety first culture, if you are or below 160 cm in height or if you are or above 190 cm in height, we need to check and make sure that you have full and unrestricted reach of each control of our aircraft.
We ask you to indicate your height during the registration so that we can schedule a test in one of our training devices if needed. Check will be done during the recruitment process in Budapest.
Please note that your recruitment fee will not be reimbursed if you do not fit in the cockpit or cannot operate the controls.

Our program is designed for aviation enthusiasts from zero to little flying experience, therefore, it is possible to join without any previous experience. However, we would also encourage Candidates with previous experience (even those holding a PPL licence) to apply for the program.
If you have previous experience:

  • If it is within the preceding 18 months, you can request that an assessment flight is held at the beginning of the program (charged in addition to the participation fees).
  • Following the assessment flight Wizz Air may decide at its discretion that the earlier experience is acknowledged and that consequently an amount (up to maximum 5000 EUR) is credited from the total training fee.
  • Regardless of having earlier experience, the initial training fee (13,950 EUR) needs to be fully paid before starting the program. You can find more information about the payment scheme of the training fee under ‘Financials’.
Please note that your documents (proving the eligibility criteria) will be checked during the recruitment process!

The recruitment fee is charged by the flight school, covering the cost of the Pilot Aptitude Test (TestAir360) and the organization of the recruitment event. The applicable fee is 110 EUR at Tréner Kft and 148 EUR at Egnatia Aviation, which should be paid by bank transfer before the recruitment day (clear instructions will be sent by the respective flight school).

The AB-intro fee is the cost of the Wizz Air Pilot Academy training program. First instalment equals to 13,950 EUR – you can find more information under ‘Enrolment’ – Official documents.
