DFS goes back to school.

More and more, school leavers answer the question about their future with one word: university. But there are alternatives to university which are equally promising from the point of view of your future career. With this in mind, DFS set itself the goal of providing schools with a set of teaching materials on a topic that is not always on every pupil's radar.

The bright world of aviation.


  • Classroom material "Flying"

    Working with the Klett Mint GmbH publishing house, we have created a comprehensive collection of material for pupils at the end of the upper secondary school cycle. The material can be used in a range of classes and it has been designed with the curriculum and competencies of the German conference of education ministers in mind. Of course, the topic is flying and all it involves, from the jobs to be carried out to the soft skills required and everything in between: technology, geography and English. 


    You can download the material, including supplementary material and audio files, here (214 MB, ZIP) (available in German only). Alternatively, you can order the complete package, including a CD with all the material in digital form and a radar simulation, free of charge from schule@dfs.com.



  • Still have a thirst for knowledge?

    What exactly do air traffic controllers do? What does their training entail? What goes on in a tower or control centre? How does the weather affect flying? Will biofuels be used in aviation? These are the questions that move our world, today and in the future. These are also the questions that wake pupils' curiosity about the world around and above them. At the dfs-schule.de website (German only), you can find well-thought-out teaching material that will allow teachers to bring the world of aviation into their classes, covering such subjects as science, technology, IT and English. The whole thing is rounded off with a glossary that provides a brief overview of all important terms and topics.
