Some Info About Lufthansa Pilots

Have you ever thought about how hard it is to become a pilot? It’s a dream job for many but only a select few will ever get the chance to make it a reality.

I came across some interesting information about Lufthansa pilots a couple of week ago.

On the Pilots at Lufthansa Page it mentions how thousands apply for one of the “sought after” places in their pilot training program. 

Some benefits of becoming a pilot with Lufthansa are:

  • Opportunity to travel the world
  • Broaden one’s horizons
  • Operate state of the art technology
  • Excellent financial prospects

I received an e-mail from Lufthansa yesterday regarding this fun little contest even thought it looks like it has been going on for a while. It actually ends tomorrow so enter immediately if you are interested!

To celebrate Oktoberfest, Lufthansa is giving away 40 interesting prizes.
To enter, you get to create your own Lebkuchenherzl
My first reaction to this was Lebkerwhat??? 

A lebkuchenherzl or herzl are “traditional gingerbread hearts sold at the Oktoberfest in Munich”. 

It took under 2 minutes to create/ design my herzl. You get to pick a border, colors, decorations, add text and a background.

Here is my Herzl:

a heart shaped cookie with blue border
My masterpiece!

This is the background I chose:

Picked from a few choices (not my creation!)
