basically what the title says. Do I still need to be at least 165 cm to become a pilot or has this changed? There is no limit stated at their website but they also don't tell you that there is no limit.

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, a 50th percentile European/North American female is 162 cm (5' 4"), Lufthansa is basically disqualifying half of all women automatically. $\endgroup$ – user71659 Mar 29 '18 at 19:30

This page for pilot applications shows a 165cm number. I didn't translate to see what it's for

https://career.be-lufthansa.com/index.php?ac=search_result&search_criterion_activity_level=107

4 pilot jobs listed, only the first 3 show the 165cm.

  • $\begingroup$ Can confirm that those 3 are requirements to be taller than 165cm. The 4th is a posting to train as a pilot, no guarantee to be employed as one later (but one would assume good chances if you manage to get in the class) $\endgroup$ – Federico Mar 28 '18 at 14:17
