Cabin Safety Conference, Bangkok 2016
The above photo was taken while presenting at the ICAO Cabin Safety Conference in Bangkok, Thailand in 2016. I was invited as a co-instructor, speaking on behalf of One Cabin Safety, to present at the event which was open to cabin safety inspectors, in-flight training managers, in-flight personnel, and airline personnel from across Asia. I had been working periodically on the flight attendant / cabin crew training academy program, yet after this experience, I accelerated the development of the training materials so I could help others, like you, achieve your dream to work in aviation as a crewmember and travel the world!

Our story of the Professional Flight Attendant Academy
Over the years I’ve helped numerous friends of mine, and friends of friends, prepare for their interviews, answered questions about “what do they mean when they talk about….” they all made it through flight attendant training, and are now flying domestic and international flights. I helped them achieve their desire to become a flight attendant. Now with the extensive preparation course I put together from years of experience and first-hand knowledge having been responsible for resume screening, open house interviews, face-to-face interviews and teaching flight attendant training to hundreds of students, we are here to help get your desired career as a flight attendant to take off!
I’ve been involved in aviation for over 25 years, traveled the world, and have friendships all over with people that work in aviation. I still remember when I first started flight attendant training, my class started with about 44 students, and as the days went by, one by one we lost trainees and watched their dreams get shattered. By the time training was over, we were down to 30 that graduated. Years later when I was an instructor at the same airline, on the first day of class, the manager of flight attendant training spoke to the new-hires and said, “I want all of you to take a look around at each other. Don’t become too friendly with your neighbor as by the time all your training is finished, about 30% of you or more will not be here.” What an intimidating way to start flight attendant training! Sadly, he was right about the fail rate; it happened every class. As harsh as it sounds, in reality, it’s true. There are a lot of people who start training but don’t make it all the way through, and they don’t make through it for various reasons. Some airlines have fail rates up to 50%, and when they start a training class, the expected fail rate is built into the number of trainees they bring into the classroom for that class. There are many quizzes, exams, and performance drills trainees need to go through to earn their wings. At some airlines, you have to pass the first and last test, no retake. If you fail the first or last test, you’re released from training.
In order to start training, because it lasts for a few weeks, you most likely will have to quit your current job. If you are currently a flight attendant for another airline, trying to switch airlines, the new airline usually requires a letter from the previous airline stating that they quit, that they do not have return rights. If you’re in a class with former flight attendants from other airlines, don’t expect them to automatically make it through training – they fail too! Yes, people who were flight attendants changing airlines have been removed from training classes as well. In other words, you don’t have a job until you pass all tests, quizzes, performance drills, and your IOE flight!
This is where The Professional Flight Attendant Academy comes in. A few years ago I decided it was time to put together a training program that covers the most difficult parts of flight attendant/cabin crew training. This course is taught in a way that’s memorable, easy to understand, and in an environment where you are free to ask questions and not feel like you asked a “stupid question.” We ENCOURAGE you to ask if you want or need to know more as we are here for you! If you don’t feel you confidently understand what you learned while taking our courses, then we haven’t done our job well enough. We will work with you to make sure you understand everything clearly so you can go into an airline’s flight attendant training with confidence! If you want to start flight attendant training with an edge over the others, if you need a little bit more time to learn the material, or if you’re not a good test taker, our training will best assist you in achieving your goal of being a flight attendant! A small investment in preparing for your future career can bring you great rewards, especially if you get into the airline that you really want to be in the first time around.
