Zeppelin flight training

Feel like one of the 11 pilots worldwide who fly a Zeppelin NT, and take the controls in your hands!

Do you love the dream of flight? The Zeppelin NT will revitalize this wonderful feeling. There are only 26 pilots worldwide who have been trained to fly the Zeppelin NT. And now you can personally experience piloting this unique aircraft.

Take the controls! During the two day training program, the special characteristics of this unique airship will be explained by an experienced Zeppelin instructor of the Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei. The basis for the theoretical training is the Airship Flight Manual (AFM). In a group of four to six participants, you will be instructed in various theory subject areas and even learn about the role of the Ground Crew. During the joint training flight, each participant will take the controls of the Zeppelin for 30 minutes under the supervision of a certified Zeppelin instructor. The will also be a second flight instructor on board during the flight to explain further topics of the Zeppelin NT. Depending on the number of participants, the practical training will last for 2-3 hours.
